My name is Rob.I am 46 years old and have been playing for most of those years off and on since my days as a junior bandsman in the Salvation Army. These days,sadly,due to domestic circumstances,it is far more off than on! My instrument over the years seem to have grown with me from the tenor horn I started on to most recently E-flat bass. As previously mentioned,I started off with the Salvation Army in Newcastle Under Lyme(Staffordshire) and played through school and several bands until my last regular stint with the Band of Staffordshire Police. Due to my having to be a full-time carer for my disabled wife,I have not been able to play regularly for the last 10 years...Do I miss it?You bet I do!
