Driffield Silver Band, East Yorkshire, Non Contesting

Discussion in 'Recruitment Corner' started by Flyingscot1974, Jul 5, 2009.

  1. Further Update

    We have just lost three cornet players to University, so we could be doing with some support throughout the section.

    The Bb Bass, and Percussion section vacancies are still there too. We definately welcome applicants for these positions too.

    If you want to come join us - on any instrument - please PM me and we'll do our best to accomodate you!!

  2. October Update

    Driffield Silver Band now has two cornet vacancies - positions negotiable, a Bb Bass vacancy, and we are still lacking any percussion players.

    The band has some fantastic soloists and a great working atmosphere, so we are looking to complement our existing set up with additional dedicated personnel.:clap:

    Anybody living and working in East Yorkshire, Hull, Scarborough or even York is within reasonable travelling time to Driffield.

    Please get in touch to find out more, or visit our website.:D
  3. November 2011 Update


    Our other Bb Bass player has managed to get himself a job in Switzerland and feels that the commute is a little taxing! So we now need 2 Bb Basses.:oops:

    We are also looking for a couple of cornet players - positions negotiable, and also a percussion section too.

    Any interest please PM me!

  7. March 2012 update

    :clap: We have had a Bb Bass player join us, so we are now only looking for 1 of those!

    Thanks everyone!

  16. Further Update - March 2013

  19. November 2013 Update

    Hi all.

    We are still looking for a kit player / percussionist to complete our line-up.

    There must be someone out there looking for a home...

    We also very much welcome any more brass players to join the 34 we already have. Most sections are over-subscribed - some by 100%! However we only have 11 cornets.

    Come join us!
  20. Another November Update

    Hi all!

    Following a shoulder injury to our principal 2nd cornet player, we currently have a vacancy to fill for our Christmas programme.

    We only have 4 concerts this year, and could do with some help. Anybody willing to step in for a couple of months would be really welcome. If you are looking for a longer placement, this would be available to the right candidate!

    Additionally, in 2014 we will have a vacancy for BBb bass. We have a Yamaha Neo instrument we purchased this year which will be ready and waiting for you!

    Percussionist are still required too.

    We have a sensible concert calendar for 2014, and a CD recording in April. Anybody interested in playing for us, please make yourself known.
