    Hi all.

    I have played front row with Champ section bands including YBS, Sellers, in West Yorks, as well as lower section bands.

    I stopped playing due to work commitment but have now freed up time to start playing again.

    I am looking to join a lower section band, ideally on Princp. in West Yorkshire, and get my lip in again - as I don't have time to commit to top level banding.

    Drop me a message if any interest, I'm based Leeds area.

    Hi there,
    Emley Brass Band, Yorkshire 3rd Section, based between Huddersfield and Wakefield, are looking for a Principal Cornet. I'm the pc at the moment but have been looking to move off the seat for yonks so if you want it and you're good enough and committed enough the seat's gladly yours.

    We have a great band room atmosphere, a really varied and entertaining repertoire of music, and are current Pogson Bray Section B, Easingwold March 3rd Section and Wychavon Entertainment Contest 3 rd Section Champions. We came 4th at the last 3rd Section Area contest and more recently 3rd in Class B at Malton Entertainment Contest.

    We rehearse Mondays and Wednesdays 8 - 9:45, the pub across the road looks after us really well with great ale and free butties, and the playing and social sides of the band are excellent.

    You're more than welcome to come along for a blow to see if you like it/we like you. Contact me anytime if you're at all interested.

    Cheers. :tup
