    The Yorkshire Band of The Royal British Legion is a military style concert (Wind) band based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire and is currently seeking a Deputy Musical Director (Deputy Bandmaster). This position is a newly created role and will offer plenty of opportunities to take the band in rehearsals, in concerts and on parade/ceremonial engagements.

    Currently with a core of enthusiastic and experienced players, the band has at its heart the desire to be a professional concert and marching band which will represent its founding organisation both in looks and musicianship.

    I have tried both the numbers, 07932752512 and also been on site and rang 079506509330.
    The first number no one answered, the one on the Web Site belongs to someone who says they have never heard of the Yorkshire Band.
    Yorkshire Band, good luck in your advertising for Members, if you do not answer PM's or Phones.

    If you check your email from this afternoon, you will see that I messaged you with my personal telephone number. The 07932 phone has stored your number (which I assume is the 01924 number) and I will call you back.
    Likewise, I have emailed you through this sites PM's to tell you about the upcoming rehearsal. You replied to me saying that you would try to be there!
