YBS Band has appointed a new Chairman. On his appointment John Myles said - "YBS Band has a long standing reputation for excellence and is renowned for being one of the best brass bands in the world. Their many accolades, including winning the European Championship title more than any other band, demonstrates the successful blend of talent and self-belief that make them the envy of their banding peers. Previously, as a Group Manager with their former sponsors, I followed YBS Band for over a decade during which time a great many audiences have been entertained by the depth and character of their diverse repertoire. The band have also performed at numerous charity concerts which have helped raise much needed funds for a wide range of worthwhile causes across the country. It is therefore with great pride that I am delighted to have been asked to become even more involved with these outstanding musicians, as Chairman of YBS Band."
