Boobs and Brass!

Discussion in 'Recruitment Corner' started by (re)tired tenor, Jan 18, 2007.

  1. We are an "all female" brass band based in Northamptonshire - our players play in a variety of local bands but rehearse occasionally together to perform at events raising money for charity. Our last concert raised over £4200 which was shared between the local hospital & the Breast Cancer Campaign.:clap:

    Our next concert will be on January 27th in Rushden, Northants - all proceeds will go to the Crazy Hats appeal - a local charity raising money for Breast Cancer.

    We are looking for any female player who would like to join our "pool" of players, but we are especially keen to hear from a Bass player who would be available for this concert.

    Please contact Jane Nichols on 01536 391081 or if you can help :tup
  2. Many thanks to those of you who have contacted Jane - we are pleased to say that we now have a Bass player for this concert. Hopefully we will help to raise lots of money for the Breast Cancer Campaign.

    We are also trying to get enough female players to attend this year's Whit Friday Marches. First Choice holidays have kindly sponsored some very pink jackets for us!

    If you would like to join us please view the website where you will find the contact details.

    ...all wearing pink jackets so I believe. Although rumour has it that there will be a male bass drumist wearing a very special uniform amongst the ranks. ;)

    Anyway, whatever, this is a great cause and a great way to raise funds for it. Best of luck to Kay and the rest of the BaB folk. :tup

  16. Female Bass players needed for Boobs and Brass

    Boobs and Brass are presenting their second Charity Concert at Kettering Parish Church, Northamptonshire on Saturday 6th October at 7.30pm. We are delighted that the female Brass Band Personality/Legend, Betty Anderson, has agreed to conduct us at this event.:tup

    Last year we raised over £4400 at this concert which was divided between
    Breast Cancer Campaign and the Ophthalmology Dept at Kettering General Hospital. :clap:

    Since then we have raised even more money at concerts & also made our first appearance at the Whit Friday Marches - a fantastic experience for us all. (Check our website for more details - especially the Guest Book page!) :redface:

    We have had lots of support from players from all over the country but we still need to attract a few more Bass players. If you are a female who plays either Eb or Bb Bass and are available for 6th October please contact Maggie Betts on 07833 663448 as soon as possible.

    We have got a rehearsal on Sunday 30th September in Rushden, Northants at 11am.
