    Having moved to the Leicester area 6 months ago, finally the 240 mile round trip to my old band has got the better and finished after the area.
    After a few months of I am starting to miss banding so lloking for a tenor horn vacany.
    Not really bothered which section or seat, just looking for freindly band.

    Moved to just of Junction 21 M1

    I am quite happy to travel to band, anything within an hour /40 mile away from my house is ok.


    Hi there, Riddings, 1st Section national finalists are looking for a Solo Horn player, not far off J28 of the M1, meets your criteria of being within 40 miles and friendly. PM me for details if you're interested.
