    Sadly John is Kit player for Driglington, so he's not for moving, but if they get relegated another section . . . . . . . . . . . I'm only kidding there a good band and will do well thsi year (sadly). So were seeking two percussionists really!! We've got laods of good gear for them to play too! And loads of space so they don't have to dance round the basses to get a triangle out!!

    Can't believe there's no-one out there interested in this ad.

    We're a band moving in the right direction just looking to fill the last few seats with like minded commited players, in a friendly and cheerful atmosphere.

    Mondays and Wednesdays, there's always a welcome.
