    I have been known to suggest that we play the street march at "Gurkha Tempo" to speed up getting to the pub, but that's just silly.

    Plus, there's a certain tempo (round about 144?) where marching turns into mincing and that simply won't do. ;)

    why not try the Hade edge old method of swapping instruments at one contest, and also change the march but only tell half the band. Seriously, it has been done

    The year we did the Lord Mayor's Show it also included a bicycle band from Holland, and they were given a very warm reception as they joined the rest of us at lunch-time - don't know how they'd cope with some of the hills "oop north" though ;)

    Actually I meant brass bands marching (or Policeman, who are usually just as poor at marching). But, hey, bring 'em on - I live in Blackley and therefore am, by definition, as 'ard as a coffin nail. ;) :hammer
