    Edit: latest vacancies towards the end of the thread

    :) Hello everybody, Our band Lydmet Lydney needs a couple of cornet players to take us to the area next year, Tristan Endeavours is a piece of music that requires someone who can play quite well, my wife who is bumper up says we need at least 3 good cornets, if you choose to come along you would not be pushing anyone out because we are 3 cornets short!!.
    We need to come 6th in the Championship section, to stay up that is!.
    It is quite feasable that we will, so if you would like to join our band even if you play another instrument you would be made welcome.
    Just check out our website at or e-mail me at
    It is a brilliant piece of music (unlike last year) and a real challenge.
    We also have a few big concerts in the pipeline, so if you feel you could do a job for us, even if you are sitting their thinking " I could never play at that standard" you could surprise yourself, GO FOR IT, you may never get the chance again.
    I am a BBb Bass Player, so what would I know!. Everything of course.

    Couldn't commit 100% right now but if you still need a front row player closer to the time...let me know, I should be free that weekend. What's the testpiece? My band did it two years ago and I had to miss it due to a wedding...would love to have a crack.

    Thanks Tim & Martin - will let you know re: the cornet line.

    The piece is 'Music for the Common Man' by Kenneth Downie (was 1st section areas 2000). We're a band that knows how to have a good time and are really looking forward to the Bugle weekend, both musically and socially.

    As you've mentioned Martin we're really after players to join at the moment and complete the band going forward (only a few gaps, which is as good as many bands), but will definitely be in contact if we need guests.

    Where are all the Baris (or Euph), Bass Trombones & EEb Bass players out there too?

    Please give me a call/post a reply if you are interested.

    Always welcome to come down to a rehearsal on a Friday night to see what you think.

    Many Thanks
