    Soundhouse Brass based in Estover Plymouth, is delighted to announce the appointment of Gary Pumford as it`s new Musical Director.
    Gary succeeds Mike Faro, who leaves the band by mutual consent and with our best wishes for the future.
    Although Gary started in brass bands he has spent many years in the Royal Marines most recently as Bandmaster of the Royal Marines Plymouth Band. When Garry retired from the Marines he returned to his first love, the tenor horn, and took up the solo horn position with Soundhouse.
    Gary`s first job is to take the band to the upcoming SWBBA contest at Torquay in November and with a recent influx of 6 new players the band is confident of putting on a good show!

    Hi Tim!
    You know all the best bands have a "bootneck" in charge!!
    We have a couple of options for Solo Horn at Torquay, so not too worried!
    Lets hope we both do the business come November!
