  5. Furher updates Dec 2009

    We have had a few new people come along, and some returners, however we could still do with a couple of new faces.

    Solo cornets - still require one, two would be better.
    Percussion - we have a part-time kit player who cannot make rehearsals, so a full timer (or two) would be great!

    All other players would be made very welcome, even if only for a one-off blow.

  6. If anybody wants to join and has issues with transport, we have players based in Bridlington, Pocklington, Hull and even south of the Humber - so lifts can be arranged!

    We are non-contesting so we do not have intensive periods of high commitment in preparation for contests therefore those students in Hull, Scarborough or Bishop Burton who do not want that pressure can come and join us without that fear!

    We are a friendly bunch too...

  13. August 2010 Update

    We have had a number of fantstic applicants for the Euphonium and Cornet chairs, so we now have a full complement of brass players :clap:.

    The only area we are short now is the shed-building department. :confused:

    Any drummers or tuned players who wish to join our developing band, please don't hesitate to get in touch. :tup

    All other players will be made welcome too, even if you are only along for a visit.
     
  14. October 2010 Update

    Driffield Silver Band are making amazing progress, though we still need a percussion section.

    If there is anybody out there who wants to play with our friendly band. We would really like to hear from you.

    All players are made welcome, even if only for a visit!

  15. October 2010 - Further Update

    Due to work commitments, none of our current Baritone section are able to attend rehearsals regularly, or jobs for that matter. So although they will continue to be made welcome when they are available, we would like to hear from other Baritone players who would be willing to commit to our friendly - and progressive band.:clap:

    All levels of ability will be welcome!

    A full rehearsal is a productive rehearsal. :tup
     
  16. November 2010 Update

    We are still in the market for a full time percussion section - so anybody who wants to give us a try - please make yourself known.

    We are also interested in hearing from any baritone players willing to fill out the section. As mentioned in a previous posting, our current baritone section are heavily committed at work, and as such mean we frequently have empty chairs during rehearsals . If you'd like to come join us, please come along.

    Any other players will be welcome on a full-time / part-time / visitor basis. Please PM me, or try out our website.

    Almost all of the above still applies, though we have managed to shuffle to cover one of the Baritones.:clap:

    Everybody is welcome to visit too!

    Everybody is made welcome, for a regular blow, or a visit - please get in touch.
