    Hi all, I'm not new but I don't ever remember having introduced myself so here goes.

    My name is Darren Peake, I'm ?? years of age (old) and I live in Shrewsbury. I play percussion at the moment for Wem Jubilee Band but used to play Trombone. I've played for a few bands since I started with bands at about the age of 13. Started with Ifton Welfare Band, played for United Co-op Crewe, Harlescott Brass and then Wem. I have however depped for more than this, including Jackfield, Porthywaen, City of Chester, Rhyl, Royal Buckley and I'm sure there are more that I've not mentioned. I think I'm right in saying I've played both trombone and percussion for all of those bands too!! I generally don't drink alcohol but that doesn't mean I don't have a good time.:D

    I tend not to be the quietest person you've ever met either socially or when playing (especially percussion). I enjoy playing pool, darts, going fishing (none of which I'm any good at) and I build and (try to) repair computers in my spare time. I work for Network Rail as a signaller so I don't get much time 'spare' anyway. Roger Thorne will vouch for the fact that I try to do as much overtime as I can get my hands on to try and appease my bank manager!!!

    That's about all I can think of for now.

    Hi Darren :hi

    It's good to hear from one of our longer-term members on this thread.

    We'll look forward to more posts and examples of the bagpuss sense of humour as the days go by ;)

    Last time me and Mr Puss depped for Dawley was a Christmas concert. If I remember rightly there were 18 in the band and 12 in the audience (and that includes the barmen!)
