    I'm currently looking for a band to join in the West Yorkshire area. I'm currently based in Leeds and would have to rely on trains/buses.

    Haven't played for around three years as I moved to Uni, but prior to this I played for Leyland, YBS, Timperley and Flixton.

    I'm going to need a bit of practise but I'd really like to start playing again and would love to hear from any bands with vacancies.

    I can play flugel as well; however don't have my own instrument.

    If anyone has any vacancies just drop me a PM on here and i'll reply asap. Going back to my parents to pick up my cornet in the next couple of weeks so i'll be free from then!

    We could certainly find you a seat, however getting to Doncaster may be a bit of a hurdle.

    Just to say that the Yorkshire Band of The Royal British Legion, located in Barnsley has a vacancy for a cornet player. It may be something different for you but could be a way to get back into blowing. Please see our website at or call me on 07903 553496.

    I used to play with these guys when I was at uni and they are a great bunch. At the time I didn't drive, and there is a very reliable bus service from Leeds which drops you pretty much at the bandroom door (if it is still going - I did leave uni a while ago!!)
