    Hi, I'm a percussionist, currently at Bradford University and I wondered if there were any bands in the area who wouldn't mind me joining in. I have no transport of my own so can't easily get far outside the city centre but any info would be appreciated.
  2. After Sunday there's a good number of bands even in the premiership needing good quality percussionists.

    I suppose Guildford is a bit too far? :lol:

    What standard band are you looking to join?

    I'd probably consider any standard, depending on the current percussion section. I've played in a first section band for the last few years as 3rd percussionist. I've mostly played tuned percussion and timps, but wouldn't neccessarily pass up the opportunity to improve my kit playing.

    ps. I think Guildford might be pushing it a bit...unless any of your members travel by helicopter from the bradford area :p

    If Benjamino is who I think he is, then any bands over Bradford way would be adding a fine player to their ranks
