Is there going to be a DVD from this years? I'm not sure if it's something done as I had never been to a contest before this one. Which bands take on the trombone slide near the end did everyone like best? I enjoyed YBS's end the best. I thought the band whose trombones stood up showed some intiative , was it Leyland? I'm missing Eden already , I really enjoyed it , kind of weird listening to something so many times in a day. I think the last time i listened to something over 10 times is when i listened to Muse -Citizen Erased 10 timeson my hifi once. I'm so pleased I went on the basis of a preview of Eden ,it really was an enjoyable day. Some of the piece did have tiny bits which reminded you of something else which was great. I'm sure i felt a bit of Holy War feel in some of the solo bits and eric ball influences in the piece which is great. Roll on the next brass band contest ,I used to find brass band concerts hard work a few years ago but I am well and truly converted now. Roll on the next contest/festival. Ah yes Black Dyke Saturday hopefully :biggrin: Also big thanks to the RAH ,marvellous place for it and the stewards were great. Not only did they not stop me taking in my own food and drink (unlike in past at RAH) the bloke even managed to tell me what band number was on when i walked past awaiting my next band to see. A great day and only for 40 quid. The williams half hour was top class , what a talent.
