The Kippax Band regret to announce that they have parted company with Musical Director Russell Gray. The decision was particularly difficult, as Russell had brought superb musicianship and an excellent track record to the band. However, it was becoming increasingly clear that Russell was not getting the response required from many of the band and that morale was suffering all round. The committee therefore took the decision to look for a fresh start, in the hope of creating some new impetus for the band over the coming months. The band would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Russell for all his hard work and wish him well in his future endeavours.
