    Bb Cornet player looking for a band. Based in Ripon, North Yorkshire but willing to travel up to an hour. Experience in playing in all sections - only back row in top section. Willing to play in any section. Unable to make Tuesday or Friday night rehearsals due to other commitments. Drop me a line if you know of anyone that might be interested.

    Hi PlayerPete
    If you're willing to travel to Emley and give us a try we'd love to see you.

    Situated just outside Huddersfield and we rehearse Monday and Wednesday nights 8:00 - 9:45.

    We're in the 4th section national finals in Harrogate this September and will be 3rd section from January.
    Friendly band, we have a good laugh but work hard and on the way up. Plenty of really good quality around the stand but looking to strenghten all the time.

    Drop me a line if you're at all interested.

    Cheers. :tup

    Or - if you're still looking - Imps are looking for someone to fill a front row seat for the open and beyond - we'd love to have you down for a blow anyway - just off the M1 / M62 at Methley (between Leeds & Castleford). See TrumpetMaest's posting today in this section.

    I think you will find it takes more than about an hour to cover that distance, unless you can afford points on your licence.
