Emley Band are pleased to announce the signing of one new, and one familiar player to welcome in the new year. Firstly, Peter Parkin-Rhodes joins our front row cornet team from local 1st section Band Grange Moor. Peter brings with him considerable playing experience, his most recent positions being 2nd man at Diggle Band, 2nd man at Elland Silver Band, and finally 2nd man at Grange Moor Band, helping them raise from a non contesting band to the 1st Section in consecutive years before moving to Emley after Christmas 06. We're sure Peter will enjoy his time with the band and we hope that time will be a long and successful one. Secondly we are thrilled to be able to welcome back Gary Brown who rejoins us on Eb Bass for his second spell with the Band. Gary was forced to leave the band due to work and family commitments in 2006, but happily he is now able to rejoin our bass team.
