    This is a concert/wind/military band based in Edinburgh.

    About 60% of the band are ex-forces.

    We are looking for some cornets, a euphonium and basses to compliment a very strong band. We have some very experienced players and great soloists in the band.

    We have:

    Wind Quintet
    Brass Quintet
    German Bierkeller Band
    8 piece Fanfare Team
    40 piece Concert Band
    Marching Band

    Lessons are arranged free of charge on a secondary instrument with professional teachers through a lottery grant. We don't compete obviously, but we do a lot of concerts, go away for residential musical/social weekends with other bands, and we do work abroad regularly.

    If you fancy a change, this might be for you......we rehearse just once a week on Mondays from 7.30-9.45. Lots of free parking and we are on a main bus route.

    There are no auditions, and the band is free of charge. We have top quality instruments for loan.

    We have a website which you can have a look at on:

    The band will be doing a recording in 2011.

    We are just back from Belgium where we played with the Band of The Belgian Air Force, the Band of the Belgian Marines, Portugese Air Force Band, Ukrainian Army Band etc. Great experience for young players....

    Happy Banding!
