    Our Band has gone into Recess for the summer - (ie all practices cancelled although Sunday Services still covered).

    I would however like to keep playing during the summer.

    I am based in Rochdale, and am happy to play any of the following:

    Tenor Horn, Baritone, Euphonium, Tenor Trom, EbBass.

    (Can at a push play 3rd cornet. Cant read Bass clef, cant fill BbBass).

    Obviously SA Bands dont contest, so I dont have a section, but I will admit to being a Jack of all and master of none (I'm the guy that gets moved around to fill holes!), so 4th or 3rd section standard is probably about where I am at.

    Sooo If you are a band based within about 5 miles, and need cover for Holidays of regular players, or are happy just to have a guest play at your practice, then I am your Man!

    Hi Pete,

    You are more than welcome to come to Littleborough Band rehearsals- we rehearse on Mondays and Thursdays at 7.45pm in our band room in Littleborough (not surprisingly :D).

    We would be happy for you to play any of the instruments you have listed, but we are short of an Eb bass player at the moment, due to our principal Eb bass player leaving to join the army. So if you wanted to play Eb bass you would be particularly welcome :tup

    We are a 4th section band. If you would like any more information, please PM me, or our website is

    My Pleasure Dave. I enjoyed it. Thanks for Inviting me. You all made me feel welcome, but the standard of your playing very firmly put me in my place!

    I think your greatly under estimating your ability, your more than welcome to come and play with the band anytime you wish.
    Once again thanks for helping out.
