    I know banders are supposedly reknown for being able to devour the odd tipple, but how do we stack up against other similar groups. I have attended several functions over the years where I think this prowess would be seriously tested. Namely bodies such as, Morris Dancers, Male Voice Choirs, Our Orchestral Cousins, Other

    Not sure about similar groups, but I think banders against a rugby team may be a close call. How about hosting a competition?! I'm first on the list at that tmp social ;) !!)

    i thought us brassbanders ruled the world when it came to drinking but i've found a group that SERIOUSLY rival any drinking capabilities i have ever known.............


    folk musicians Vs Banders would be a very, very close call methinks!

    Being both a rugby player and a bander....The rugby boys can hold more booze , but the banders are far filthier.....Those of you from Becontree at the Harrogate travel inn on Sat / Sun night know what i mean!! I was shocked and ashamed!!!

    Living with a Rugby Player, I know only too well how much rugby players drink, and to be fair I think any uni rugby club would put us all under the table.. some of the stories he comes out with are just unbelievable and quite frankly wrong. I mean drinking your own vomit?! or putting your mate's head thru a glass window and then carting him round town with blood pouring from his head whilst claiming he can't walk cos he's too drunk..... (he spent 4 days in hospital as a result of the concussion/blood loss) And don't ever wander into "rugby corner" in the union bar.. saw a fresher stray into there in freshers week, he was rugby tackled and rucked quite badly before the "bouncers" (mainly ex-rugby club graduates) calmed things down.

    To be honest drinking to the standards of the rugby boys fills me with fear. Why I chose to live with one is beyond me!! (And as those who know me will testify, I'm not shy of a drink meself)

    With regards to the other groups in the poll, I've never seen any other "musical" group enter into drinking/socialising to the same degree as brass bands
