    I nominate Jersey Premier Brass.

    An exemplar of how to run an a self funding organisation with huge costs every time they compete anywhere.

    Add that to adding the L&SC 1st Section Crown to their 3rd and 2nd section wins in the last 5 years, and it all racks up very impressively.

    Im going to say Black Dyke. They won Yorkshire Regionals, 2nd at English Nationals and 6th off draw 1 at Open and they won the national as well as a fantastic Epic Brass Concert. They have been in fine form all year and it came good for them in London.

    I'm going to be very parochial here and give a shout for our very own Perthshire Youth Brass - growing and developing all the time, last week they put out a band of 33 under-16s (including no fewer than 4 basses, and a soprano cornet - without any overage help) all of whom display a level of willingness to learn, virtually 100% rehearsal attendance and an appetite for playing that would put many a "big" band to shame.

    I would like to nominate City of Cardiff band. Even though they have been our rivals this year, their excellent achievements in local welsh contests, and a stunning result at the national finals, make them worthy nominees for this award

    Come on you taffs

    Band of the Year ~ well it has to be Black Dyke.

    Overall they still have that magic word ~ consistency.

    This has been proved for over 40 years to my knowledge.

    Ask yourself one question ~ “if given the opportunity to join or dep with Black Dyke would you take the challenge ?" ~ I did many years ago ~ only as a dep though ~ I was made to feel really welcome and the adrenalin rush that I had when I first put the jacket on was a memory that I shall never forget.

    Before many tMP's wonder whether I am a Pondasher ~ the answer is no, I do however appreciate banding at all levels, but as mentioned, Black Dyke just has it all ~ another point to ponder ~ you never get many empty seats at any concert or contest when they are performing !
