Bands in Staffordshire/Derbyshire

Discussion in 'The Rehearsal Room' started by Band Lads Army, Sep 8, 2005.

  1. Hi

    I'd be interested to know of the bands and the sections they are in these areas. I'm interested in perhaps getting in touch with one to see if i could gain any experience somewhere. I only play in the SA and I have an interest in joining the miltary army in the future and becoming "under two flags" :) , but playing in a band of the standard I do I'm never tested and I want to have a challenge. I'm really only a drum kit player but want to get into tuned. It's interesting to see someone who I knew at school years ago(S fraser) playing percussion in the Riddings band.

    Anyway i'd be interested and welcome any responses by pm or email .

  3. Burbage Band in Buxton on the North Derbyshire / Staffordshire are a good lower section band. Don't do lots of contests, about three a year but do lots of top concerts. the band is more or less full, and has a youth training band as well, but does have a vacancy for a decent tuned / kit percussionist

    Matlock Band is 3rd section from 2006 and is in Matlock in Derbyshire.

    We are currently looking to recruit a tuned percussionist, so you are just in time!

    We rehearse Tuesdays and Sunday evenings.

    Please PM me if you would like any further information.
