    Having achieved 4th at this years 1st section area contest Carlton Brass are aiming to strengthen our ranks with some new players.

    We are looking for a quality principle euphonium player and a couple of front-row cornet players, plus a dedicated percussionist or two.

    We rehearse in the Carlton area of Nottingham on Monday and Friday evenings. We're a friendly bunch so don't be shy!

    Leave a comment or send me a private message if you're interested.
     
  3. I agree, they're a great bunch! Give it a try.

    P.S. Congrats on your Area result!:clap:

    We've recently had to say goodbye to Craig Anderson on BBb. Work commitments (the bane of brass bands the world over) strikes again. So, we are now looking for someone to fill that seat (there's a cushion and everything).

    Our updated vacancies are now:

    Front row cornets
    Principle Euphonium
    BBb Bass
    Percussionists - kit and tuned or really anyone who likes hitting things with sticks

    We're also heading up to the Whit Marches in a couple of weeks and are missing a few cornets and possibly BBb. Let me know if you'd like to come with us!

    We're an adaptable bunch and always looking for talented, committed brass banders in any position. If you live locally and would like to come down for a blow then please drop me line. A private message here is fine, although you could also give me a ring on (0771) 4700182.

    We rehearse on Mondays and Fridays 8-10pm at our bandroom directly opposite the Fox and Hounds in Netherfield - next to Carlton train station

    Having recently joined the band I can say that its been a great move for me and that the band are a very friendly bunch.....

    It'd be great to have some company on Euph tho!

    Our resident work-shy student and second trombone par excellence has finished his course and sadly departed to pastures new. The band wish him well for the future and are sure that whoever he plays for will be delighted with his superb musical ability.

    This leaves us with an additional vacancy on Second Trombone. Captain Carlin could do with a decent 'bone in his section. Another one, I mean.

    We still need a quality Euphonium to fill the soloists seat. Wally has bought Where Eagles Sing and our current Euph's fingers don't go that fast!

    We could also do with at least one more cornet (front or back) and we're starting to wonder where all the percussionists have gone. If you can hit things with sticks then please let me know.

    Carlton Brass now have a much healthier player base after some very welcome acquisitions recently. However, we are still in need of a couple of players in the following positions:

    Percussion - tuned or kit.
    Cornet - front or back

    Next year's regional piece is the percussion-tastic Pentacle by Graham Cole and so we're keen to find talented tub-thumpers in our area.

    We're currently in the first section and after a great result this year we're well-placed in the league table for next. We're a friendly bunch and can usually give lifts to players from any part of Nottingham and the surrounding area if needs be.

    Contact via PM or via our website:

    Cheers :)

    It seems that our luck is continuing with player recruitment thanks to both of Nottingham's excellent universities. We have now acquired an excellent percussionist plus a couple of trainee stick bashers. In addition to the new noise-makers we have also found a new cornet player.

    We do have a longer-term requirement for second trombone, so we would be pleased to hear from any local 'boners looking for a quality band.

    We could also do with an additional back-row cornet.

    Contact via PM or via our website:

    • Solo Baritone
    • Solo Cornet
    • Back row cornet
    • Second Trombone

    If you're interested in joining our friendly first-section band then please get in touch with our Chairman John Bailey on (0115) 9117556 or email info@carltonbrass.co.uk
