    Best bit will be trying to get all the instruments past the metal detectors, or getting a BBb through one of the X-Ray machines :dunno

    "Sources at Grimethorpe Colliery Band have revealed that the band is shortly to make a major announcement that they believe will secure the band a worldwide profile."
    It would be great for the banding world in general if this were true but I think this statement might be slightly over-egging the pudding. I have watched many an opening ceremony and i am hard pressed to remember any of the musical acts. Well, apart from Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl but i remember that for entirely different reasons ;)

    Really? I'd be surprised if most brass players didn't remember the Sydney 2000 Opening Ceremony ... :

    I was laughing at the "sweep" comment. Sorry.
    I didn't remember the Sydney Ceremony either.

    Maybe it's just a trumpet-player thing ... :oops:

    I didn't remember it either.

    Mind you, I didn't actually watch it in the first place... ;)

    Although now, having seen it, I'll not forget it in a hurry!
