I'm dissapointed in the way Micheal Howley has left YBS When Morgan Griffiths left YBS to join fairey's Mike was offered (and accepted) top seat since then the band have won 3 Europeans, 1 open and 1 yorkshire area (with Mike on top seat). The band have been searching for a Solo Euph to replace him (their choice) When Morgan came back int othe frame Mike was offered 2nd Euph or the goodbye handshake. That's not nice but fair enough in top class banding today...... which leads me to.......... The publicity for this switch, all the mentions Mike has had from the brass band press have been one liners..."and Mike Holwey has resigned form the band" 4barsrest went a whole extra line further!! No-one at YBS has come and out and thanked Mike for his tine with the band, the effort he put in, it's all how pleased we are to have Morgan again!!! I know Mike is happy to let things go, but I'm not, he's been a very good mate for a very long time and I know how much he loved been at YBS, so a little gratituded from them wouldn't seem like too much to ask would it.... Mike is now sat in a pub somewhere considering his options, anyone who might want him give him a shout.
