    Hi, I'm looking for a friendly BBand in the Manchester area that needs a Bass Trombone.
    I currently reside in Didsbury, but I'm happy to travel.
    I'm a wee bit out of practice, but that's my new year’s resolution. Previously played with all ladies trombone section, but I am prepared to sit next to boys.
    Would love to hear form any bands with vacancies!

    Don't know whether your sorted with a band as yet, but if not you could try Frobsham Silver Band. Just off the M56, probably about 30mins from Didsbury.

    If you want a championship band, then it's not for you, as they stopped 'contesting' a few years back (even though they are good enough to start again). However, if you want a very friendly band, where the accent at rehearsals is on a relaxed social evening, then it's right up your street.

    They welcome any age / ability / instrument, e.g. one of their trombone players has just passed his grade 8, whilst another is just starting out.

    Don't get the impression that they're no good. They are an excellent band, and get rave reviews from every concert they play at. They focus on entertaining the audience, with the focal point being their MD, who always involves the audience in the performance.

    The band rehearse from 8pm on Monday and Tuesday (main rehearsal) evenings, at the band hall in Greenfield Lane, Frodsham (road by the side of the Bears Paw!).

    Feel free to just turn up, or if you want to contact someone first, either PM me, or contact their MD (Norman Denaro) on 01928 712048

    As a final point, if you fancy a brass & woodwind band, trying to resurrect itself, they rehearse in the same place on Thursday evenings (same MD).

    If I don't hear from you, best of luck with your search & future playing.

    Sorry for the misspelling - it's Frodsham, not Frobsham!!!

    I am well aware that the Whitworth Band, M.D. John Binns, are looking for a Bass trombone to complete the line up for the Areas. Dave Tattersall. (tatt on tmp) is the man to contact. You will enjoy playing with them I can assure you. Not only is the rehearsals good crack with John, but also the after rehearsal drink has always got an amusing angle!!!!! Enjoy banding and get to Whitworth.
