    Due to work committments, I'm moving to Leeds on monday. I'm temporarly staying in Headlingley but haven't sorted anything permanant.

    I'm looking for a band to play but not sure of my full committment at this moment. I currently playing for Burbage (Buxton) who are currently in the 3rd Section - Midlands.

    I will need a bass to play and I don't want play anywhere thats to far from Headingley.

    Please PM if you or know anyone that can help, thanks:)

    Hi Stella;
    The Band of West Yorkshire Fire Service are looking for an Eb bass at the moment. They have a sovereign instrument available, and are based at the edge of Leeds, near IKEA. A great Band, with tours to Ypres and Canada coming up. The Band are led by Lee Whitworth. You can find details at:


    Good luck!

    Wetherby Silver band are needing an Eb Bass, from Headingly it's probably a 25 min drive, instrument available. Lead by TMP's Wonky Baton (alan seymour), drop him a PM, he's away I think so it may be a week before he gets in touch.

    You will, you will Anthony.
    Rather than "World Famous", I would rate myself as majorly insignificant, though perhaps "Locally infamous" would be more appropriate.
    A description which I'll gladly share with Mr B and Mr Malone !!

    will love to i will pm my number steve. I've heard so much about mr ian. Struggling to find somewhere local. Lots of loveley responses but i didnt really want to be travelling far. Is Kippax far as is it easy reach of the m1?

    I don't think there are any bands close to Headingley, Kippax is not that far but quite a tricky drive to get there, being the wrong side of "town". What you need is someone close to you (in Headingley) that plays in one of these bands, so you can car share.
    Come on peeps, I can vouch that Stella is a luvverly (if ever so slightly bonkers) lass!

    I am trying to offer and have said i will pick up on way through from rochdale if necessary. I can divert through there to wakefield. I have pm'd stella with no reply. Just trying to help even if on a temporary basis if you want stell? Maybe someone could tell her if she is not online at the moment.

    Its around 20 minutes maximum from Headingly to Horbury and I do it in around 15 - 17 minutes on my way through. Multi map says 25 but to the bandroom, which is on the outskirts is shorter.

    There's Horsforth (Leeds City) Band (Non Contesting) which is about 4 miles from Headingley.
    There's also Otley Band ( Ungraded but of a good standard) which is about 7 miles from H.
    I don't know if Yeadon Old Band (The "Yobs") are still going, but Yeadon is also about 7 miles.
