    We are a brand new swing band and are currently recruiting, in particular, brass players. We urgently require trumpets and trombones of grade 5+ who have a keen interest in swing/big band music and would like to join a friendly, enthusiastic group of players with an exciting future ahead! We're looking to build a bigger library of music to include the classics (Miller, Basie, Ellington etc) as well as numbers currently enjoying the spotlight again courtesty of Mr Buble, Mr Williams and Miss Emerald. We have gigs in the pipeline already, first one in March, so time to get cracking!

    (I know this is a brass recruitment post, but if anyone knows of any keyboard/pianists who might be interested, please pass on our contact details. Thank you.)

    Our inaugral welcome meeting and rehearsal will be at the Woodbottom WMC, Baildon Bridge, Otley Rd, BD17 7EP, Tuesday 21st January (and every Tuesday), 8pm-10pm with a beer break at half time! Ample secure parking and a friendly welcome await.

    So...if swing is your thing, please get in touch.

    Look forward to hearing from you.
