    If you're studying at Bangor Uni and want a band to keep your lip in, look no further than Menai Bridge Band.

    Just across the bridge, it's a 3rd section band who are pretty friendly and you'll get a few beers out of the conductor (Nick Jones need not apply for this - you already get a few beers out of me!!!!)

    Even if you're not a student and you are interested then pm me or look at the band's website - and email!

    Was it Andy? If so, he decided to sell his cornet as he had had enough of playing. Don;t think it was down to me conducting or the band - we won the North Wales contest with him and came 5th at Pontins - best spell the band had had with me doing a Zorro impression at the front
  6. as far as im aware he still has his cornet as i had to go to chesterfield at last xmas to play at some garden party. (with free beer) i dont think he would ever sell it. i'll have a word for you before he goes back to uni
