    Due to changes in circumstances Ive had to finish at Carrbrook but am looking for a new band, 4th section not too far to travel from Rochdale. Have played 2nd baritone ( and have my own) but thats over 2-3 years back now!! Please note I cannot reherse on Mondays and Wednesdays at all now.

    HI Andy,

    Old Hall Brass are rehearsing tonight (Thursday) if you fancy a blow. Come down and have a look at us.

    Well a month after this post and still no band !! I presume its the not being able to attend Mondays and Wednesdays (the mortgage comes first!!) or is there really now a surfeit of Bb bass players?

    Why don't you try coming along to ours on Thursday at Denton (see first reply). Or is it that you specifically want to go to two practices a week? We could do with a helping hand in the bass section - maybe some of your wisdom might rub off on us! We have Fleetwood and Pontins coming up too which you might enjoy?

    Hi there

    I'm not sure if we are too far from Rochdale for you, but Elland Silver Band have a BBb Bass Vacancy. We rehearse Mondays and Thursdays but you would be welcome to come along on a Thursday evening.

    The band rehearse in Elland, West Yorkshire close to J24 of the M62 Motorway. Rehearsals are at 8.00pm. We have a spare instrument if needed which you would be welcome to play on.

    Send me a pm if you fancy coming along, and I can provide directions.
