It is very sad to hear that Pennine Brass have decided to call it a day but after the demise of Sellers International Band last year and now Pennine (both Huddersfield bands) the question "Who's next?" rears its ugly head. Is it due to the number of brass players at Huddersfield Uni. I don't know but there used to be a lot and good players too. I'm sure the players there now are just as good but have the numbers dropped? Is it due to the monopolisation of the area...very doubtful for anyone outside of Black Dyke, Grimey or Brighouse to lift the Yorkshire title next year...or is it due to too many bands not enough players? Any ideas guys? This is more a why and who question. Surely banding cannot be struggling so much. Although Yorkshire seems to have more bands per square mile than pubs which band could be next?
