    We have many members from "your side of the pond" and I'm sure some of them will pop in and say hi, we're a pretty friendly bunch. ;)

    If you need any help getting around the forum, don't be afraid to shout. :)

    Thanks much!

    What amazes me from my time spent here is the number of bands (brass and otherwise) you all have. It seems that there is a brass band in every town.

    I did a search and did not find many around me. :(

    More than one in each town actually. I think someone on here estimated 3000 bands in the UK! I have just got back from Canada and they couldn't believe how many we have either!

    unfortunately, the number of bands is steadily declining due to lack of young players but we all still fight on.

    welcome to the site.
