    Aussie Bands from Downunder,
    How many members of the Mouthpiece reside in Australia?
    I am recovering from a operation at the moment and found this marvellous site, just by accident. In Australia, we have 4barsrestDownunder, which till now was the only band site worth spending time on. A site in Oz called spitvalve is not even worth a mention.
    Aleady today, I discovered Alan has joined theMouthpiece, & it makes it such a small world, as he plays EEb Bass in Parramatta City Band, as I do as well.
    Well, Let's here from som Aussie's!
    Regards to ALL. Norman Short

    Hi there Norman. There are several members on here from down under - Australia and NZ too. Alex Kerwin is a regular frequenter too.

    Hope you enjoy the site.

    Thanks Di,
    Time has been on my side. Thanks to theMouthpiece, it has been an interesting experience. UK banding is very fortunate to have such a great site.
    Regards Norman

    I'm with you there. I had two ops in a 6 month period, both giving me 6 weeks off work. Would have gone up the wall if it were not for tMP. ;)

    Thanks for these comments Norman - but we're not limited to the UK.

    OK, so we have most of our members from here but are always looking to attract new members from all over the world. We have many members from the USA, Canada, Singapore, Europe and of course Australia and New Zealand.

    Please feel free to spread the word... :)
