    Does anyone know of any bands or music groups that would accommodate a bass-clef-playing trombonist, near to Cheadle in Staffordshire (Alton Towers country?)

    A friend of mine took up trombone a couple of years ago, having previously played saxophone and piano. He's really looking to play Dixie, but has an eclectic taste in music and would be interested in getting experience in any kind of band, including Brass Band.

    ceramic brass band is based in longton and can be found on google easily enough. They do have a bass trombonist signed for contesting but would certainly enjoy an extra player as he is sometimes away and needs a dep. the band has an Eb bass player who travels from cheadle & so could probably help a bit with travel if its too far, sharing lifts or whatever

    Hi Steve and Tunky,
    My friend found a non-contesting band in the area that I think he's happy with, but I'll let him know you're there and contact you if he's still looking.

    Steve - congratulations on your Areas result.

    Hi Andrea ,

    As already suggested Stone band would make your friend very welcome and just to add to that thought if you wanted an extra blow to keep the lip in , so to speak , you'd be more than welcome to come along with him.
