    All bands being quite friendly in this area I know Stannington are looking for a principal perc. Friendly band, top of the 1st section with new conductor.

    Stocksbridge (1st section as of 2007) are looking for a euphonium i believe.

    Chapeltown (2nd section 2007) are looking for a euphonium.

    Oughtibridge (4th section 2007) are looking for euphonium

    But i'm sure you've been told that already!!

    Good luck in finding a band, and probably see you around, I'm sure you'll enjoy Sheffield banding scene!!

    If you have any desire to build sheds in an orchestra then PM me I've got contacts in all the main orchestras in Sheffield.

    You could try Old Silkstone if they're still looking (champ sect 2007)?

    Best of luck and if all else fails pop down to Killamarsh (PM tubafran) for a guarenteed enjoyable evening (for all the right reasons). And you'll be able to network well with players from most local bands.

    You'd be welcome to come along to Stannington and have a bash, we're after a first percussionist at the moment and as Yorkshirepuddin' says we're a very friendly bunch! :D

    We rehearse Thursday and Sunday nights at the Malin Bridge Sports and Social Club. PM StanningtonBrassBand, me, Squirrel or Bassmittens if you want more info.

    Not a problem, there are ways around such things! Another PM sent :)
  12. Hi Charlie

    Our Flugel Horn player has already replied saying that we have a vacancy for a percussionist but the good news is that depending on where you will be living we could possibly arrange transport as well and where we rehearse is also on the supertram route so you should have no problems getting to where we rehearse.

    Looking forward to hearing from you and wishing you a good time in Sheffield.
    Chris Wilson
    Secretary to the band
