    Hi Dick,:)
    I will pass your message on to Gary and see if he has got your phone number, if not I will get back to you.
    I think I may recognise your name from when I played in Bulkington Band when Gary was there, I play there with my mum Janet Hemings on the back row cornets for many years, from the four section up to when it fall apart.

    Speak to you again soon

    Gary Smallwood is the new MD for The District of Dunchurch Brass.
    207012_1016932668044_6756_n.jpg
    [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]We would like to thank Helga Perry for all her dedicated hard work with the band over the last two years, over which we have seen the [/FONT]Band grow in numbers. Helga has now decided to [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]step down due to work commitments, and she will now be taking a playing role within the band. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]The band are very much looking forward to working with Gary, and are looking forward to the future.[/FONT]


    [FONT=Courier New, Arial]Gary Smallwood grew up in North Wales where he came from a musical family. His father and four brothers played with Llay Main Colliery band and when the pit closed Gary started playing trombone with Royal Buckley Town band.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Courier New, Arial]It was in 1966 when he went to Nottingham to train as a teacher that he met Allan Street, a Music lecturer at Nottingham College of Education and at that time Musical director of Championship section Markham Main Colliery Band. Allan Street invited Gary to play with the band and he did so for three years before moving to Rugby for his first teaching post. Gary has always regarded Allan Street as his mentor in Brass Band conducting.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Courier New, Arial]Gary’s conducting career began with Dunchurch Silver Band where successes included wins at Milton Keynes Entertainment contest, West Midlands Association and the Radio Birmingham Competition. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Courier New, Arial]After a short break away from Brass bands he became Musical Director of Bulkington Silver Band and won the 4th Section Midland Area Championships in 1986 resulting in promotion to the 3rd Section. In 1987 Bulkington won the 3rd Section Area Championships and were promoted to the 2nd Section coming 3rd in their new section in 1988. In 1990 Gary won the 2nd Section with Bulkington by 4 clear points and the band was promoted to the Championship section. In the short space of 5 years he took Bulkington from the 4th Section to theChampionship section. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Courier New, Arial]In 1993 Gary was appointed Musical Director of Bedworth Brass. In 1994 they came second in the Midland area and won many contests. The Band was promoted to the second section before Gary left the Band in 1995 due to ill health. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Courier New, Arial]Since his retirement as a Headteacher Gary has once again taken up the baton, both with District of Dunchurch Brass and on a freelance basis. He has stepped in at Avonbank (Evesham) whilst their conductor had major surgery and in 2009 he was invited to conduct Cubbington Silver at the Midland area Championships taking First prize in the 3rd Section. He went on to take 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] prize at the National finals at Harrogate and won the West Midlands Brass Band association 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] Section in December of that year.[/FONT]
