    Very strong line-up for this year's Brass in Concert (see 4br). No Foden's this year, and Dyke playing in the pre-contest concert only, but 8 bands from the current brassstats.com rankings top 10 in the field.

    Here they are in current rankings order. Paddy's odds to follow no doubt:)

    Nice to see Cory and Brighouse back in, as well as GUS. The gala concert the night before with Black Dyke, Cory and NYBBGB looks like a cracker as well. Would have been even better to see one of the top foreign bands in as well.

    and Paddy discovers where he posted his original odds :oops:

    Well, the league have been having their say, I've given a nudge to the other half who haven't so expect a little more movement in this market ahead of the weekend...

    Some very interesting band-conductor combos this year! If the actual result is as per Paddy's odds, then Cory are set to reclaim the number one ranking - definitely brassstats.com and probably WoB too I would guess.

    Previous results of this year's contenders here.

    Really difficult to understand how 4br can have Briggus coming fifth. I know their off the No.1 draw but still.

    Personally just hope that the new rules make for a really enjoyable, entertaining but musically demanding contest. May the best band win!

    Totally agree with the new scoring system, I hope it produces a fair result as the principle could be applied at plenty of other contests...

    I hear Leyland played 'Hootenanny'... Can that really be right?

    I do hope so.

    Where the great lead the rest of us follow, looking forward to a return to cheese :)

    As their "encore", apparently.

    They did- unless I was mistaken it was edited so that it skipped from the opening to the faster tunes about halfway through but it was definitely Hootenanny.

    It was hilarious. A great contrast to the other 'heavy' finishers. A brilliant day.

    Just listened to the Les Neish interview regarding his selection for the solo prize.

    He says Steve Stewart was the 'complete package' having absolutely 'nailed it'. I thought Steve Stewart was brilliant, but don't think he quite 'nailed it' ... 'welded it' maybe! :)

    Les also mentions Thomas Fountain from GUS, Chris Gomersall from Grimethorpe and Mike Eccles from Fairey, but he did not mention of the superb solo playing of Stuart Lingard at Brighouse (although he did get the best Principal Cornet award) or the beautiful flugel playing of Romana Hallstead (I think I've got the right name) in 'God Only Knows' with Leyland.

    However, the biggest omission has to be that of Kirsty Abbotts playing 'Send in the Clowns' with Carlton Main Frickley. I don't think I've ever heard better, more beautiful controlled playing by any other brass player! She was absolutely stunning and should have been the winner by quite some distance.

    Shame on you Les for going with brash showmanship (which wasn't perfect) over quality.
