    Bring on the area's!

    Becontree Brass Band is delighted to announce that it is now up to full strength for the forthcoming areas contest at Stevenage, on March 20th.

    We are proud to be able to announce the following signings:
    Stuart Jenkins, Tony Rickard, and Kathryn Green on Solo Cornet.
    Simon White and Paul Waldron on 2nd Cornet.
    Paul Hambleton on Flugelhorn.
    Chris Ford on percussion.

    We wish our current Principal Cornet Chris Storey (and Erin!) 'all the best' as his 2nd baby is due on or around the date of the contest, and so is unable to play with us!

    We are also pleased to welcome back to the band Les Shadrake on BBb Bass, Liz Chisholm on 3rd Cornet, and Adrian Davoll on 3rd Cornet.

    Permanent vacancies on Soprano Cornet and Solo Cornet arise AFTER the area contest. Anyone interested in joining this forward thinking band, with a great bandroom atmosphere, as we enter our 25th Anniversary year, should contact me on bbbrec@tiscali.co.uk

    THREAD UPDATED WEDS 12th APRIL 2006. PLEASE READ BELOW

    So, you've been in that band for years and years- you played in the regionals this year and then thought to yourself 'Gosh, I think its time for a change'.....

    Does it ring a bell?

    If you can answer YES to the above question, and you want to come and join a fun band with a great atmosphere- but also a band that takes its music seriously (yeah, honest!) then why not come and join us at Becontree Brass Band (MD Graham 'Garry' Sheldon) !

    As you may have read elsewhere we've recently recruited Alan Duguid to our band as Solo Cornet and Assistant MD- well, none of us can understand a word he says- but if you fancy trying to work it out for yourselves then COME AND JOIN US!

    We currently have vacancies for the following:

    A 2nd or 3rd CORNET PLAYER
    A PERCUSSIONIST (tuned or non-tuned, we don't care!)

    The band has a reasonably busy 25th Anniversary year lined up, with various local contests, a CD recording, a weekend in Bournemouth, some wildly differing concerts on the horizon, and a trip to the Nationals at Harrogate......
    DOH... scrap that last bit!!

    If you fancy a change, or just want to come and see what we're like- email me on bbbrec@tiscali.co.uk or PM me.

    Becontree Brass Band. "No-one (adjudicators!) likes us, we don't care!"
    The 'Other' band in Redbridge!

    If I hadn't moved to sunny Somerset, I'd come and play back row cornet for you. Bored with solo horn now, in fact bored with banding altogether, down this way. No decent bands within miles!! :)

    ....is something that we can't offer you- but thanks for looking at this thread anyway! ;)


    BECONTREE BRASS BAND (London & Southern Counties 1st Section) are actively looking for players of the following instruments:

    2nd CORNET
    BBb BASS
    PERCUSSION (tuned or un-tuned, or both!)

    We have a busy schedule lined up, including several prestigious outdoor summer gigs. We are also taking part in the SCABA Contest in Crawley in May, the SCABA Contest in Folkestone in the Autumn, a weekend away in Bournemouth, three big concerts this year, and a CD recording.

    Our website is currently down as its being upgraded, but if you want to know more information please talk to me (or to fellow members on this site: Cornetcheese, Laserbeam Bass, Brassbailey, Baritone Elvis, KJM, Resus)

    We are a band that prides ourselves on enjoying what we do; mixing fun with serious music making. Over the last few years we have attracted several quality new players to the band and a well known and hardworking MD. We had a very disappointing result at the areas, which didnt truly reflect on the hard work or the ability of the band- so don't let that put you off. We laugh about it now! (Although Mr Horsfield won't be getting a Christmas card from us!) :p

    If you are in anyway interested- please get in touch!

    Lady Luck has this morning taken another 'below the belt' punch at us!

    Please apply in confidence by email or by PM.

    London/essex/kent/hertfordshire/suffolk

    We currently attract players from all the above areas- and as Essex's leading 1st section band we are now looking to recruit more first rate musicians.

    Our results this year have been a little disappointing, and somewhat misleading- thats because we've spent the last few months going through a time of re-building and growth. In order to complete our line up we need to fill the following vacancies:


    BECONTREE BRASS BAND (London & Southern Counties 1st Section)

    • SOPRANO CORNET (from August 2006)
    • TUTTI SOLO CORNET
    • 3rd CORNET
    • BBb BASS
    • PERCUSSION (two players required- tuned & un-tuned)
    Please apply in strict confidence, or have a chat to me- by emailing bbbrec@tiscali.co.uk or sending me a PM.

    (We are also really looking forward to welcoming 'Rebolina' to the 2nd Cornet section in September 2006!!! Thanks for choosing us!)
