    Met Clarence when our Band was at Newcastle Corps, a Christian Gent, and badly treated by his Insurers!

    Looks to be a good programme, and it will be great to meet Eiliv Herikstad again - a real Christian gentleman who made quite an imporession when he took a practice with us a few years ago.

    Thanks to kjm for pointing out that I had given the date as the 18th, when of course it is Saturday 17th - next week :oops:

    Sorry for any confusion, and look forward to seeing lots of you there ;)

    The awesome trombone section will be; Andrew Mackereth, Dudley Bright, Carl Shepherd and Derek Bishop!

    Derek is an amazing bass trombonist. For the 2006 concert, he turned up with a 1960s Conn Elkhart 71H which he'd bought on US Ebay for $600 and sounded better than anyone I'd heard in a long time!

    To be fair, the 71H is a great bass trombone that amateur players have mostly forgotten about these days. I play its double dependent valve sibling, the 73H, and find that other musicians around me in all settings tend to be quite pleasantly surprised to hear that old-fashioned bass trombone sound - lacking in the tubbiness that so many modern models suffer from.

    Geeky bass trombonists (don't know any of those... :rolleyes:) sometimes rave about the 90s RSNO (?) recording of Richard Strauss's Alpine Symphony, and specifically about the monstrous pedal Gs that Bob Hughes laid down in the Summit section. What they often forget is that those notes are doubled between trombones 3 and 4 - the other player was Derek Bishop, who rarely gets any credit. Both were playing old Conns, I believe - and both on Bach 2G mouthpieces. Interesting to compare how pleasing the effect of that relatively small equipment is versus the effect of the slide-tuba bazookas that often get employed in bands.

    Wish I'd heard the section for this concert now...
