    I've just moved to Lancashire and I'm looking for a band to play in.

    comfortable in most levels, higher chair in lower sections and lower chair in high sections.
    can also play sop in lower sections.

    Hi PP :)

    How about 10 miles down the road, 15 mins in the car ?? Nelson Band (4th section) are just up the road from you - at least three of our players live in the Accrington area so you could even share the driving :wink:

    Our main rehearsal is Monday night and you would be most welcome on our front row !!

    PM or email me

    Cheers !!
