    Not been a good weekend so far for Gloucestershire Brass Bands so good luck to our remaining representatives Drybrook, Lydbrook, Polysteel and Pillowell.

    Earn yourselves a finals place and local bragging rights!

    Nice to see another piece of fantastic adjudication from the team of Hope and Hardy (maybe Laurel might be better suited to the task!!!) it is time that the so called ajudicators sit some manditory testing as to there ability to do the job.I think Alan Morrison needs to be listened to.Having played in the 2nd section at Torquay,heard the adjudicators comments from the stage and yes Alan Hope, Torquay is in Devon not Cornwall and then to read the comments from them its pitiful!!!!! I do hope they make a much much better job of it on Sunday lets see what happens. As for seven (7) points between the first placed band and ourselves in fifth crazy adjudication

    Just to add a bit of balance to the above!....
    Well done to Bristol East & Kingswood and Shrewton on qualification (You`ll do us proud in Harrogate I`m sure!).
    Also well done to Soundhouse and Michelmersh on their promotion to the first section! :)

    Well done to Chalford Academy Brass, 7th off a no 1 draw, I listened to a few in the 4th section and the standard was really high.
    Unfortunatly, we at Chalford band only came 8th in the first section, no complaints, we were ok, left the best one in the bandroom, usual excuse, but really enjoyed working on the music, just got back home and poured myself a cider.

    Well done Portishead:clap: first time in this section, I wish I could have been with you:(.

    Big congrats to Beak, Shrewton (well done Michael, shame we won't be going to the finals with you again) and the dwarf playing from one end of the band to the other:wink:.

    Question-after the area, can the grading tables or who goes up or down be posted from the powers that be please?

    Well done, it was the same in the 4th section for Chalford Academy Brass, It`s the only way to go, set up a B band, youth band, beginners. And I think in the West of England, even the top bands realise that, go into the local schools and spread the word!.

    Any more info on why they were so bad? I notice Alan Hope asked for 'only what it said on the tin' in Yorkshire last week?
     
  15. WagTheStick

    WagTheStick Member

    Should have added 'alledgedly' so bad - and add that I agree with his comments in Yorkshire (and those made by Billy Rushworth in the band press echoing the sentiment this week). I rate both Colin Hardy and Alan Hope very highly - actually they are amongst a few adjudicators that consistantly ask for the same thing - i.e. what it says on the paper!:eek:

    Well lots of talk on this site about the merits and suitability of Four Cities Symphony and now the test has been run and bands have talked through their perfomances yesterday it might well be time to reflect. I listened to several bands some highly favoured to win and sadly whilst the dots were played the performances did not always capture the musicality of this test. I think before any of us including myself are too scathing about music set we need to realise what effect it will have on our performance and how we treat the music. If we are preparing a band, the influence it will have on the players as they too are preparing for the test. I personally initially wrote off this test piece however as preparations began, I grew to realise that I was wrong, my humble apologies to the composer Rodney Newton.

    Thank-you for the message. This time last year City of Bristol had less than ten players. Yesterday we played in the first section with three players short, six players who'd never played in a contest before and with two of our training band in the ranks (aged 10 and 11). We'd achieved our goal even before playing and to come 11th was a real bonus. Credit to all involved.

    Great result for Bream - promoted to 3rd Section without having to spend huge amounts of money going to the Nationals for a 3rd year in a row :clap:

    Well I think going without any percussion is not really a wise idea for our band, but at least we went and enjoyed the day.
    Funny our second baritone was slated for being wayward....even though we didnt have a second bari!

    well done to all those who qualify.
