    I am a 19 year old (female!) Eb Bass player looking for a band to play in around Birmingham. I am currently studying Tuba at Birmingham Conservatoire in my first year. I play in the brass band at the Conservatoire but the band doesn't contest and I miss contesting. I used to play at City of Oxford (Championship section) before I moved here, so a band at the same standard ie Championship/1st Section would be great. Not too far from Birmingham though as it means getting my Tuba on a train, not fun!
    Thanks!

    Hi, plenty of bands in the area...
    Staffordshire (who I think already have 3 EEbs)
    Langley (who do have 3 EEbs - 2 of them female :D) - but you are always welcome to come for a blow
    Others in the area (though not sure how they stand on Basses)
    Sovereign
    Shirley
    Pheonix Brass
    City of Birmingham are very close to the city centre & need a EEb AFIK
    Bit further afield there are..
    Coleshill Town
    Bedworth
    Jaguar & City of Coventry (over in Coventry - 15 mins of train)
    Jackfied & Wellington (Telford - 45 mins on train)
    West Mercia Constabulary (Worcester)

    (Apologies to any band I missed :))
