As i am a sad brass band anorak i tend to look at different band websites to see whats been happening with them-its a problem, ill admit it. However, i am not hear to discuss my OCDs but something else that has got me rather confused. After looking at bands pics of them on stage(and on dvds i buy of 4bars rest ) ive noticed that some top bands playing in the Europeans have say 5 front cornets or 5 basses or 4 troms, without any other players missing. Does this mean the rules for the amount of players you can have at the Euros are different? Im very curious so if anyone could pass on the info behind this then i would be very gratefull.
