We had a visit from Keith Espin (Conductor of Corby Silver Band in Northamptonshire) at rehearsal last night. He's up here working in Leeds at the moment and was looking for a local band he could have a blow with to keep his lip in, so contacted us to see if he could pop along for a blow. We sat him on 2nd trom (our 2nd trom Fliss is on her jollies at the mo), and he seemed to enjoy himself. It's exactly that kind of thing that makes me really love banding, a total stranger, pops along, we made him wecome (well at least I hope we did ), and he had an enjoyable evening rather than sitting alone in a hotel room somewhere. Nice to meet you Kieth (if you're reading this), it was nice to have you along last night.
