The VBS Poynton Band are pleased to announce the arrival of Gareth Steele, who will be joining the band on Bb Bass. Gareth adds a wealth of experience to the current bass line up having previously played with BT, Glossop Old and Marple Bands. Gareth's first concert was last Saturday at 'Party In The Park' in Poynton where the band played to over 2000 people. Gareth will replace long serving Bb Bass player Garry Beswick. MD Neil Samuel commented: "I feel very lucky to be able to welcome a player of Gareth's calibre to the band. Gareth not only brings his playing talents with him but he also brings enthusiasm by the bucket load!". Paying tribute to outgoing Bb bass player Garry Beswick, band chairman Pete Cookson said: " Garry has been an absolute pleasure to have in the band room, and more importantly a bandsman who's commitment has never faltered. On behalf of the band I would like to wish Garry all the best for the future".
