    Hello Everyone,
    I'm Phil and Iam an Eb Bassist with the Frampton-on-severn Silver Band, but have played with the Delph band & The Band of the West Mercia Constabulary before.
    When I'm not banding, (well in the summer) I help in organising a Gloucester day Parade. which we have 2 parades (am/pm) @ 1/2 mile ( but it does stop/n start). We have the Gloucester Civic Mayor, Sheriff & dignitories in full regalia + the Gloucester Veterans + other city churches, organisations,etc

    However, we have been let down by a band, so just wondering if any band is available or wants some marching practice ( thats mean't as a joke). on Saturday 3rd September

    Only really needed for the afternoon, but if you can do both, then maybe we can negotiateNow if not a full band, half band/ jazz band, would be OK. It is a paying job of say £150-200 or neg. offer. We can free parking available & also offer refreshments, plus everything in the cathedral city of Gloucester, not forgeting Gloucester Keys outlet centre.
    If you think that you may be able to offer some assistance, I would be very happy to hear from you.
