    "a brass band is good in its place, out in a field far, far away" - i believe it was said or written by Oscar Wilde if im wrong im sure someone will correct me and let you know who it really was

    I think you will that it was the celebrated conductor Sir Thomas Beecham who made the above quote.

    i must have been thinking of something else then, thanks for the correction :)

    Also Harrogate Brass Band, used to have a page of dedicated "band humour" thats probably worth a look

    Personal Statement:

    I wasn't sure what to write as my personal statement so I decided to go with an old Brass Band saying.....


    If in doubt, leave it out.
