    Hi all,

    I'm searching for a first class band to play with from september. (Preferable front row/Sop but not essential)
    Will be regretably leaving the Ipswich and Norwich Co-op Band (LSC Championship section, assistant principal) due to travel issues.
    Have a fair amount of experience in the championship section, bits and bobs with lots of bands, most notably Redbridge.

    I don't have a car so lifts would be most appreciated (I live in Peterborough but parents are willing to take me travel 30-40 miles to meet someone).

    If you are interested in hearing me play or want more infomation then feel free to PM, email or call me on: 07845 92 49 40.

    Looking foward to hearing from everyone,
    Paul Shafi :D

    Separates them from the common lot on 3rd and 4th chairs.
    No mere "Tutti Cornet" title for these guys !!

    I play PC. My second man down is my assistant. She supports me and plays my parts should I not be able to attend rehearsal. Therefore she is the assistant principal cornet player!

    Exactly, we are a no ordinary solo cornet but for reason we are sometimes thought of as conceited, no idea why?? ;) Now back on topic, anyone need a cornet/sop player?

    Jesus, so much for a sensible thread to find a new band, shall I pre emp other quite silly posts:
    no I am not going to portmouth, scotland, Cardiff or any other silly suggestions.
    I'm all for a laugh, but I do want a new band, hence the thread name, so can we keep the silly suggestions for another thread please.
  16. Thought you was going to go with Robin?? or don't you fancy that? Decent band and nice people.

    Perhaps you should change the title - "Cornet player seeks humourless band"? these guys are having fun, and keeping your thread in the limelight! Best of luck in finding a band, I'm sure in these days of cornet player droughts there will be space for you.

    I presume you tried some band website's near you see how's looking for players?

    oh, and i'm in the 2nd man camp - all a bit politically correct this assistant principal. . it'll be principal 2nd horn next. . .

    At the moment, it's between 3 bands that I'm currently playing with.
    Just quick message in general to everyone:

    Thanks to all bands who got in contact with me, I think I replied to everyone, but if I didn't I will as soon as I can, I just got About 5 bands call me in the space of a day.
    I have narrowed my choice to 3 bands.
    Thanks again to everyone,
