    Hi,

    I'm a Bass Trombonist based at Huddersfield University and I am looking for work with ideally a non-contesting band although a band that doesn't put too much emphasis on contests would also be great

    Unfortunatly, I own none of the above instruments so the band would have to provide (sorry) although I qualified for the higher performance route at university on the Bass Trombone (approx. grade 8 ) although I actually play(ed) the Tuba for my course, I have also played BB-flat for a top 1st section band and Bass trombone for a lower championship band

    I am contactable at yetanotherrob@aol.com or by p.m.

    Rob

    We are a 4th Section band who are always welcoming new players. You would be welcome to join us and we will be able to get hold of an instrumment for you too. We are based in Tintwistle, Derbyshire. We have a many concerts but only one or two contests and don't make them our main aim. We hope to do Whit friday along with one other contest this year (that is all). For more information you can view our website www.arnfieldbrass.co.uk

    Hope to hear from you soon,

    Just re-iterating my own thread.

    Although I am doing the spring-fest with Knottingly Silver Band, I am unsure as to whether I'll stay with the band.

    After Blackpool, I would like to travel around a few bands, sit in on a rehearsal and generally get a feel for the band.

    Unfortunatly Blackpool is a bit far ....

    Oh yeah and I've edited what instruments i want to play from the original post.

    Hi,
    If you ever fancy a trip further south to one of our rehearsals you would be more than welcome. We are about to come back into contesting after a lengthy absence. We are currently on the lookout for a bass player. The band are extremely sociable and you will always find us out our welfare after each rehearsal.

    Looks like you've joined Knottingly now, but if a band nearer Sheffield would suit you better then Chapeltown are looking for a bass trombone
