    OK, on the back of BMB's thread asking which tMP'ers have depped for Wem band, I thought I would extend this and try to find out some interesting information.

    If you have used a tMP'er in your band for any dep job, please post the name of your band here, and I will add it to the poll above. Then, those who have depped for your band can add their vote by selecting it from the list of bands in the above poll.

    This does of course require honesty on everyones part, but if I make it a public poll where all names are displayed, then if you see a name against your band for someone who you are not aware has depped, then simply inform one of the team and we can amend.

    That sound interesting...? let's see.

    I shall kick the poll off with Wem, but if you have used a tMP'er to dep for your band... let me know here and I will add to the poll.

    hmmm, that's a point...does that include tMPers who depped and ended up joining? And are we talking actual band jobs, or "just popped in for a blow" at a rehearsal?

    Through tMP I have depped for Portsmouth City Band and Depped for (then joined on a temporary basis) Stanley Newmarket Colliery Band, not sure if that one counts though.

    What about Whit friday scratch bands or do they not count?

    I we only counting depping where it has come about through tMP, thus excluding ones where we knew people before?

    I have depped for The Emley (Whit Friday last year - does that count?) :D
    I also depped for Becontree back in the late '80s when I was living in East London.

    Does this count for playing a few numbers with the band in a mini concert? Because in that case I have 'depped' for the ISB.
