It is with much regret that the East Yorkshire Motor Services Brass Band, announce that two of its longest serving members - Danny Hatton (Backrow Cornet) and Liz Grosvenor (Solo Euphonium) - have decided to take a break from playing with the Band. Liz joined the Band in 2000, when she moved to the area after obtaining a full-time post with the Kingston Upon Hull Music Support Service. Initially playing 2nd Euphonium, Liz moved onto the Solo seat in 2004. As a regular soloist with the Band, Liz impressed with her musicality and technique, and was one of three soloists to feature on the Band's last CD 'The Deep', performing James Curnow's Rhaposdy for Euphonium. Danny is the last continuous serving founding member of the Band. He started at the first rehearsal in 1989 and has featured on the back row ever since. Famed for his anorak-like encyclopaedic knowledge of the Band's history, especially in the contest field and test pieces used by the Band, Danny's other specialist talent lies in doing impressions of some of the conductors and players from the Band's past. Both Dan and Liz have served as members of the Committee, and will be missed not only for their playing ability, but for their all round contribution to the Band. We would like to wish them both every success for their future together.
