    After a bit of a summer sabbatical and a chance to take stock of what Im up to, i want to get back banding - looking for a seat on Bb bass, but not to demanding and relatively hassle free due to as well as doing the day job, I'm also doing a degree course!!

    Live in Rochdale, have transport but need to take fuel costs into account as far as distance is concerned!!

    Coppull & Standish have a BBb bass vacancy and you'd be more than welcome. We've got some interesting stuff coming up including a CD (next weekend - gulp!), Pontins, Bolsover entertainment contest and a variety of concerts including one with a local choir. Good social side too, most of the band will be in Harrogate on the lash for the finals weekend.

    If you want to come over for a blow, just let me know. :D

    Hi Andy. I know my Principle Cornet player has also contacted you (Carrbrook Brass Band), however I thought I'd give you a quick reply. He's correct when he says we have exciting times ahead. I also Live in Rochdale and look forward to travelling to every rehearsal. Takes about 20 mins on a good run. The atmosphere is great and the band improves with every rehearsal. We have begun to practice the Area Test piece and everyone is up for it! I would very much welcome you down to complete our lineup. I'm sure you would enjoy it. Feel free to give me a call anytime on 07796 841315 or mail me at Cheers.

    MD (Carrbrook Brass Band)
