    I'm beginning to suspect there are not a vast number of west Cornwall based Bass players looking for a band who happen to read this forum.

    So let's try a different track... while we do need basses we also need a Principle Euphonium.

    This is a unique opportunity to play in the most westerly band in England.

    Don't delay, join today.

    We've got BIG plans.

    Bass players of Cornwall, come forth and join Pendeen Band. Come and join us as we get ready to go to the SWBBA Championships in November, then prepare for the National Qualifiers in 2013 along with an exciting trip to the Isles of Scilly.

    Maybe you play Euphonium, well you're in luck. We need a principle euphonium too.

    What I her you cry, you're a cornet player. No worries we also need some tutti solo cornets.

    If you are in Cornwall and are looking for a band, or looking for a change, and looking for a band that is going places then drop me a line, or visit our website, or call us, or just turn up at a practice.

    Do you want to be part of Pendeen Silver Band's master plan to be knocking on the door of the 1st section by 2022?

    Pendeen Band are currently entering the 4th section and we have plans to change and are looking for dynamic players to join us as we prepare to charge.

    We are currently preparing for the SWBBA Championships in November and are looking to recruit basses (Eb and BBb), a principle euphonium and tutti solo cornets. If you want to make a difference email me at - all other instruments welcome too!

    Let's have a bit of variation in our requests.

    Something a bit different...


    Do you want to join Pendeen Band? We welcome applications to join the band from anyone who wants to share our vision and help us become a solid second section band over the next 10 years.

    In particular we are looking to recruit:
    a tutti solo cornet
    a 2nd euphonium
    a bass trombone <<< this is the new bit...
    an Eb bass
    and a BBb bass

    We are currently preparing for the SWBBA Championships in November, we then have 1 or 2 Christmas engagements, before preparing for the National Qualifiers from January.

    Also in 2013 we are intending to record a new CD as well as enjoying a tour to the Isles of Scilly.

    If that interests you and you want to join a band that both has vision and also has a supportive and enjoyable attitude to banding drop us a line.

    Respond with a email to or call on 07764679370

    I'm not going to give up, eventually someone will see this and be inspired.

    Hopefully a bass player, Eb, BBb or Trombone. Yeap, we'd really like some more basses.

    Go on.

    You can't knock a man for trying. If I lived in Cornwall I'd come along just because you're so persistant. Good lock!

    I hoping to eventually wear someone down enough to make them just move to Cornwall and join.

    As I'm here I'd just like to point out we need some players, and if you've like to hear more about our plans I was interviewed on the radio

    [h=3]AUTUMN RECRUITMENT – LOOKING FOR A NEW BRASS BAND?[/h]As summer is coming to a close and the nights are pulling in your might be thinking about the future.
    You may be thinking that you want more from your Brass Banding and are thinking about a change. Pendeen Silver Band is well known for being the most open and friendly band in all of West Cornwall, and is also known as the the most progressive and forward thinking band in the region.
    So far in 2012 we have celebrated our 120th Reunion with an amazing concert and buffet at Geevor Tin Mine, we have competed against the best bands in the World at the Whit Friday Marches and our very own Band Week was a festival of music that celebrated the band in the community.
    Add to this the relaunch of our training band, our plans to tour the Isles of Silly in 2013, our commitment to enter (and win) the SWBBA Championships, the National Qualifiers and Bugle you can see that Pendeen Silver Band is the brass band for West Cornwall.
    Now, we need YOU.
    We are looking for players to join throughout the band, and in particular:

    • Solo Cornets
    • An Euphonium
    • A Bass Trombone
    • An Eb Bass
    • A BBb Bass
    • All other players welcome too!
    If you think your banding could do with a perk, if you want to play in a friendly and progressive brass band that brings joy to your life then you should join us.
    Give us a call on 07764 679 370 or email to find out more!

    Hi Chris,

    Just wanted to say good luck with the recruitment and I admire your perseverance! :)

    Have you tried approaching some non-contesting bands, to see whether there are any players there that may want to do 2 bands? i.e. not poaching.
  16. ChrisHatch

    Thanks! It's only been 3 months so it's bound to pay off eventually!!

    The most important thing I'm trying to do really is raise the profile of the band, between this, Facebook, The Cornishman, 4BarsRest, Radio Cornwall, our website where I try to pump the info out so people know we exist. Historically the band has never been good at self promotion so I'm trying to change it.

    And yes, we are remote - but no more so really than say St. Keverne, who I think are a good model of how a remote band should promote and grow itself.

    It's a good idea to contact some non contesting bands, thanks for suggesting that one. It's interesting what you said about poaching - I posted a message on the Facebook 4BarsRest group over the weekend, but now you've brought it back to mind I've added it here too.

    Sorry if you've been an Euph player looking at these posts for the last 3 months thinking I must join that band - you've missed your chance. We no longer need to recruit an Euph player.

    If you are a bass player however, Eb, BBb or Trombone don't make the same mistake.

    Act now to guarantee your place in Pendeen Band.

    Darn it was just about to sign up! ;)
    All joking aside good for the band and I am sure the rest will follow soon, I have always thought we are short of good mid-sectioned bands in Cornwall.

    Solo Cornet - Bass Trombone - Eb Bass - BBb Bass players.

    This is it, your big chance, the one you've been waiting for, yes, it's the chance to play Devon Fantasy in the most westerly band in the UK.

    How could you turn this down.


    How could you.

    I'm going to wait by the phone...
