    Hello, :D

    I am a friendly Eb Bass player is looking for a place in a friendly brass band with an even friendlier conductor. :biggrin: I am a older 4th section player with 8 years experiance on the Eb Bass. Ideally i would prefere a non contesting band within half an hour travelling time of Freckleton near Preston.:tup

    Most bands in this area seem to be in higher sections and are beyond my capabilities. :eek:

    Have Bass - Will travel ....... well within half an hour anyway !:clap:

    Hello Paul and thanks for the reply,

    Unfortunately the travelling time to Wigan area is about one hour from where i live and is just a bit too far to travel, also i am a 4th section player and would struggle in a second section band.

    thanks again

    HI Eb,

    Maybe a touch too far (although we are 5 mins from J27 M6, so north side of Wigan). But don't underestimate your talent, maybe theres a 2nd section player bursting to get out!

    Keep us in mind..and good luck!

  6. U tryed littlebourgh band, there a freindly local 4th section band with a good md!

    I would have thought the easiest thing to do in your situation is research what bands are in your catchment area, narrow it down to the 4th section ones (I bet there aren't many), and give them a call......

    Thanks to everyone

    Hello one and all,
    Thank you for all your replies, i have now found exactly what i was looking for. a friendly 4th section band, 17 miles from me and non contesting. A special thanks for all those who took the trouble to offer places in their bands, i just wish they were a bit closed they all sound great.

    thanks again
