Do hardcore brass bander's listen to brass band music on their iPod? Just got myself a new 16gb iPhone - and there's only a hand full of non brass band tracks on it!!! In every band there exist players who are deeply interested in playing, fairly interested, and weakly interested (the weekly band practise gives them somewhere to go, kinda thing). Has everyone else found this? In top section bands - are all the players hardcore fans etc? I presume they are, given their level of playing. I've just found recently that in lower section bands - you'll find players who have never heard of renown brass band pieces, and will play brass band music but wouldn't be caught dead listening to it. For me, its the genre of music I like listening to most.
