    Our band is going to buy some new music for us to use this year. Our library hasn't been updated for several years and we don't have much money to spend. What we would like to do is borrow the music listed below for a week or so. If we like it and feel that the band can put on a decent performance of it we'll go out and buy our own copy. If we don't like it then we can pick another piece and spend our money on that instead. So if any band has the following that we could borrow for a week or so we'd be extremely grateful

    Blue Rondo A La Turk
    Breezing down Broadway
    Something Stupid

    All of them are good band pieces, Michelle. "Blue Rondo" is tricky but worth it, "Breezin'" is a belter, and "Something Stupid" has been my best seller for 2 years now. It's dead easy to play. Just buy them, they're OK!
    I tried to be as kind as I could last week in Darlington, but it did kind of fall apart to finish. It's not much consolation I know, but it wasn't as bad as 1 or 2 I heard in Motherwell the previous week! At least you got there, and had a go.
