    Hi, I'm an Eb bass player, been out of practice for about 3 years now (played with Solent for one contest but couldn't keep up practices due to shift work).

    Now working 'normal' hours, so looking to get back into banding. Any vacancies in the area? Have car, willing to travel (within reason)!

    there are choices for you lucky man! There is my band Hyde off to the Nationals (1st section) and championship next year. ok we have 6 basses but never turn people away and are extremely friendly. There is Verwood (3rd sec) and a possible lift with conductor from fareham (junction 9) on monday and thursdays. There is otterbourne (thurs and maybe sundays) and woodfalls concert also off to nationals in 1st section. take your pick but if you are a good bass player you are like gold dust for most bands. get back a.s.a.p. and enjoy!!!!!!!:clap:

    Leginald - if by any chance you are still homeless (banding wise) would you like to come and take a look at Verwood as we are currently one short on Eb Bass (October 2008)
