    Hi all, I'm currently looking for a band in the North West area, I play Bb cornet most of the time, but I can and have played sop and flugel if instruments are available. I currently play front row in a strong second section band but I'm looking to start pushing my playing onto higher levels although all sections of band would be considered.

    Contact by PM Many Thanks!

  7. i said i would help out this band if i could find any cornet players looking for a band so i'll post this msg on for you.

    Blackley Band, based near manchester are really needing front row cornets and i believe the principal cornet seat would be available altho u'd have to double check that.

    i went down there for a conducting audition and altho they are currently in the 4th section, they have the potential to win it at next years area if they can get the quality cornet players they require.

    there new md is a lad called Adrian (Adie) Smith and his email address is adiesmith@hotmail.com

    they are a really nice band, very friendly, and have some very good potential, i'd highly recommend them to any player looking for a band.

    hope this is some useful info for you, and i hope adie doesnt mind me leavin his addy here, im sure he wont, he said he was keen for any help on recruiting some new players :)

    good luck in finding a new band
