    Becontree Brass, are a 1st Section L&SC brass band and are currently trying to recruit an experienced permanent Solo Trombone and 2nd Trombone due to relocation and work commitments of our previous long standing players, to complete our line up.

    We are urgently seeking trombone players to support the following booked events:

    Key Concert Dates

    Monday 12th December - Guildhall Library, Basinghall Street, London - 7.00pm
    Friday 16th December - Civic Hall, Grays , Thurrock, Essex - 7.30pm


    Saturday 14th January - Butlin's Mineworkers Contest - 1st Section - Skegness, Lincolnshire.

    We rehearse once a week at Loughton Methodist Church, Loughton Essex, which is a 10 minute walk from Loughton tube station on the Central Line. Our MD is Nigel Taken.

    We are ideally looking to secure long term committed trombone players to be part of our friendly band, but we find ourselves needing to urgently cover these key engagements in the short term.

    Like many bands we are a subscription based band, but we can cover expenses.

    If you are able to assist with the above we would be delighted to hear from you. We would be even more delighted if you felt you would be able to join on a permanent basis for either position.

    We would ask that you could make an agreed number of rehearsals to be familair with our music program and of course the contest piece for Bultins which is Fantasy for Brass Band - Malcolm Arnold.

    Thanks for reading the post and all the very best.

    Maybe I could join you at Butlin's 2019 as a guest player? I am Rob Slocombe, BBb Bass player signed-up with my local 1st Section Band, Cawston. (113 miles away from you). My band is not attending Butlin's 2019 My main instrument is trombone (BA Band Studies 2001). I am due a wrist operation tomorrow, 11th Dec 2018, so will be out of commission until after Christmas, but maybe I could come to you for a try-out thereafter? It is likely that you are already fixed-up, but do let me know. 07952867598

    You may not have spotted that this is an old thread. Unfortunately Becontree Brass is no longer functioning.
