    It never rains but it pours............!!

    Just lost Flugel and 1st Baritone player, due to work commitments.

    So now looking for Cornets, Bass Trombone, Bb bass, Flugel, 1st Bari

    Things can only get better (there must be an arrangement of that somewhere!!!!)

    We are hoping to contest at Fleetwood, St Helens, Preston and Blackpool - even if you do not wish to join the band, we would appreciate your help to field our contest band.

    One day we'll have a full band - we live in hope!!!

    Regards

    We have recently acquired the expertise of our good friend Dave Holland, Musical Director of Haslingden & Helmshore Band, as our Temporary MD, to help improve the standard of the band and attract more players and yes, it's working already :wink:

    Don't worry, he's still conducting H&H - he's only on loan :biggrin:

    Players still required in all sections :)

    **Please note that rehearsals have been changed to MONDAY evenings, at The Ace Centre, Cross Street, Nelson, BB9 7NN.**

    Typical - Kevin bogs off to Blackburn & Darwen and I get landed with the Secretary's job :rolleyes:

    After an influx of registered players (especially cornets :eek:), we are only short of four players for the contest at St Helens on 16th November and just require the following:-

    Sop
    Front row cornet
    2nd Horn
    BBb Bass

    Rehearsal nights for the contest will be Mondays as usual and Fridays with effect from Friday 3rd October.

    And this from a band who three months ago, only had twelve players round the stands. It can be done, with a bit of hard work and a bit of luck :wink:

    Sop and cornet found and therefore we only require 2nd Horn and BBb Bass to complete the line up for St Helens :)

    However, we still have permanent vacancies for the following players:-

    Bb Bass
    2nd Baritone
    2nd Horn
    Sop
    Flugel
    Solo Trombone

    Having said that, we welcome players in all sections 'cause if you're better than us, we can always shift :biggrin:

    **** PLEASE CAN A MOD EDIT THE FIRST POST IN THIS THREAD TO READ MONDAY NIGHT REHEARSALS INSTEAD OF TUESDAYS AS IT SHOWS UP AT THE TOP OF A SEARCH FOR THE BAND ON "GOOGLE" - THANKS IN ADVANCE :) ****



    NB - Our new website is currently under construction - watch this space :wink:

    Nelson Band are off to a flying start to 2009 and are currently preparing for the Areas in Blackpool on 1st March. Flugelhorn player now found (woo hoo :clap:) and therefore we only have permanent vacancies in the following seats to complete a full band for contesting:-

    Soprano
    Front Row Cornet
    2nd Horn
    Solo Trombone

    Having said that, we welcome players in all sections 'cause if you're better than us, we can always shift :biggrin:

    If you are struggling with commitment in your present band, Nelson Brass are not a very busy band (job wise) and only normally have one rehearsal a week on a Monday night - ideal for those who have other commitments during the week or simply have a busy lifestyle.

    Obviously, when contesting, we rehearse twice a week - Mondays and Fridays 8-10pm upstairs at The Ace Centre, Cross Street, Nelson, BB9 7NN

    Why not come and have a look/join our group on Facebook ?
