    Hi all!
    Why does it seem that quite a lot of brass banders like pubs?
    Be glad to hear of your opinions!
    Cheers!

    Banders and Pubs joined at the hip and while i'm sure the pub would survive without the banders i'm sure the banders couldn't live without the pub :D :D

    It's a simple equation really. Pubs have beer in them.

    Is there a part of that difficult to understand cos it could be elaborated quite extensively.

    So it's not a case of meeting with your bandmates OUTSIDE of the bandroom?
    Damn it. I must be doing this all wrong.
    What is this "beer" of which you all speak?

    I know some tee-total banders who like pubs... it's just a good place to sit around, have a drink (alcoholic or not) and talk rubbish for hours on end! What more could you want?

    What we want to know is which came first, beer or band?

    i am stabbing a guess at how a band was formed....

    a group of drunks were sat in a pub next to a mine in america
    outside the mine was a lot of metal and toold so these 25 drunkards staggered out of the pub after a well enjoyed necking session and stumbled across all this metal and tools.... a woman came down the road and trying to persuade her that they were sober she asked each one of them to make a trumpet...... each one hammered and chopped the metal and came up with an instrument each of their own. They realised that you could make sounds from it and all played twinkle little star together and this was the first type of band ever... i think...... and its all down to beer..... bands and beer have been linked ever sinse :wink:

    Lets face it, if there were no pubs there'd be no band politics to discuss and formulate after practice and where would we be without that!

    I used to love getting drawn first as more time in the pub untill I was told this is a bad draw--not in my book :lol:

    Well, for me after band I've usually had a long day at uni beforehand and probably done quite a lot of playing throughout the day - so by the end all I want is to sit down with some mates (banders or not) with my pint and relax.

    Perfect way to unwind.
