    Situated in the heart of Brass Band Country, that being Saddleworth.

    The Boarshurst Band have vacancies for two bass players, preferably Bb, and a Soprano cornet player, to complete our line up in time for Whit Friday and beyond.

    The band is currently in the 3rd Section of the North West Area.

    We offer excellent rehearsal facilities and a very friendly team of players, most of which have been with the band for a number of years.

    Interested? PM me if you wish.

    This is what I said in a previous thread regarding band room designs ~ having spotted this in the recruitment section I thought I would add the following comment below.


    Originally Posted by Bones [​IMG]

    A good sized rehearsal room with space for percussion and spectators
    An Office
    A Kitchen or brew room at least
    Storage for perc cases, spare instruments and uniform rails, preferably in separate rooms
    A library with plent of flat surfaces for sorting pads out.
    A kids room/creche
    PLenty of parking
    Access for a van and coach
    Double doors at some point in the building to get stuff out easier.

    Brighouse have got this right.


    Boarshurst Band (third section) in Greenfield has everyone of the above except a creche ~ but they still have the 'odd' empty chair (see previous recruitment posts), they even have a bar, committee rooms, so why with all these facilities are they unable to fill seats ? ~ the same can be said for Dobcross as well.

    If anyone is thinking of applying I can recommend this very friendly and progressive band, who have everything going ~ as mentioned above, they have not quite had the luck with results and past MD's. However, rumour has it that a new MD is on the horizon. I am sure that they will be on the way back and are worth any interested applicant applying, even if only going to a rehearsal and then testing the club facilities.

  4. Aren't you 2 bands very close together and in the same section? I think your post is really nice, especially as you must be competing for the same pool of players.:clap:

    Yes Dobcross and Boarshurst are very close, in actual fact you could encompass, Dobcross, Boarshurst, Greenfield, Friezeland, Uppermill, Delph, Lydgate, Oldham Lees and the two Mossley Bands and not use a gallon of petrol visiting them all.

    Yes, you are right, they are competing for players, the above range from fourth section to championship section, the situation is not helped by the local music centre discouraging the youngsters playing with the local bands and it is rumoured that there is 'in fighting' from youth band players being 'encouraged' to play with the senior band.

    But to revert back to the post topic, for any player wishing to improve from the fourth section or any player wishing to play with a lower section band, I can only recommend Boarshurst as having very good facilities, a friendly band, not too much work I understand and well run ~ headed by Janet Payne, who needs no introduction from me.

    Plus, if you like the social side, on most Sundays, there is an evening concert by many various brass bands (of all standards) in the Band Club ~ not many bands can boast that !

    If I had not retired from playing many years ago, I would certainly have tried them out.

    DobX Dave,

    May I thank you sincerely for your very kind, supportive comments.
    Perhaps you could call down for a drink on a rehearsal night and introduce yourself to us so we find out who the person is behind the comments.

    The bands M.D. is buying. (but he doesn't know yet}.

    Which march are you playing on Whit Friday ? pm details I might make one on BB bass
     
  8. Boarshurst

    Boarshurst Member

    As most people are aware, most Saddleworth Bands play for the Whit Friday Walks of Witness in the morning.
    If you have never been involved, it is an amazing spectacle and part of the tradition in the area. The march contest is somewhat secondary to what the day is about.

    However, if there is any players in the area, just for the day, who would like to sample this special day why not get in touch with us via pm and join us in the band just for the walks. It is an experience you will never forget, playing the Saddleworth Hymn, 'Hail Smiling Morn' whilst marching through the villages with the streets lined with cheering on-lookers.
