    I am a kit player from Wakefield (West Yorkshire) who is looking for a kit seat with a championship or a very good first section band in the Yorkshire region. I've a degree in popular music from Sheffield Uni, and many years experience playing with brass bands and many other styles of music. I've never played for a top section band but lots of people tell me I should do and am more than capable. I've been doing a lot of brass playing the last few years and am looking to get back on the drum stool. I can play tuned/untuned percussion if required but i am really looking for some kit playing. If anyone can give me some info of possible vacancies, it would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    I would think most bands would welcome a percussionist who is looking to join a band on a regular basis. :tup

    As Ruth mentioned earlier, Hatfield would welcome another percussion player. We currently have one dedicated, regular member, and 2 other members who help out as and when necessary.

    Have a look at our website

    If you're interested you can contact us through the website, or pm me for more details.

    Hey everybody,
    I've been away for a few days and haven't had chance to post on the news. I've agreed to go for a bash with Pennine Brass in Huddersfield.
    I was expecting a few e-mails from my post, but I didn't expect so many offers. Thanks to everyone who contacted me and everyone who gave me info on vacancies.
    I'll let you know if there are any developments.
    Many Thanks
