    Hey all,

    Im off to Uni this year... so im looking for a band to play with when i get there!
    Im going to be studying at Salford.(Not studying Music)

    I currently play for a good 2nd section band (Soundhouse Brass if your interested), would prefer a high section band but all considered!

    Anyway hope that all makes sense.

    Hey mate...
    I know all this isn't as good as Soundhouse.... but, there's a band in Eccles... Eccles Borough Band :lol: funnily enough, who would welcome you with open arms.... currently 3rd section... At present they have top man seat available...

    Plenty of bands round here as I'm sure you're aware....
    Flixton for one, although I'm not sure what vacancies are like....
    4th section Blackely....
    Sale Band, also 4th section, are about 10min away and could *possibly* get you transport sorted....

    and many many many bands around the Manchester area.... I'm sure there's a list on ibew or something ;)

    Remember this *prepares for the bleeper*.... **** band good position, good band **** position..... depends what you're after ;)

    Happy Hunting and see you round in Manchester from September!

    Sale are definitely up for a good front row / principle position.
    And Naomi is correct, transport can be arranged within reason.

    We look likely to have a vacancy on the back row at Ashton Band. First Section, with the added bonus of playing at the British Open in September - trouble is that is early in September & I'm guessing you wont be up till then, so would probably be too late...

    I think, if you mooch round the website of all the local bands you'll have no trouble in finding the kind of vacancy you want. Our is and there are loads more links in the link section on here to look at.....
