I had the pleasure of playing with Bearpark & Esh Colliery band on Sunday, and the even greater pleasure of playing half-a-dozen or so pieces arranged by Alan "monty" Beaumont. Monty is a fantastic arranger and his music deserves a wider audience. His style is much more interesting and involved than most I've played, whilst still maintaining a realistic standard of requirement from players i.e. it is well playable by lower section bands. It beats the pants off a certain large Belgium company who seem to have cornered the market for lower section music. :lol: He has a website at http://www.sibeliusmusic.com/cgi-bin/user_page.pl?url=mbeaumont/ so for all of you looking for some lush new music or a talented arranger give him a shout. He's also a top bloke and on this thing as drums4monty. Colin.
