Plants potted at Hebden Bridge

Discussion in 'The Rehearsal Room' started by richardcowens2008, Mar 3, 2009.

  1. Hebden Bridge's preparations for the Yorkshire Area were thrown off course on Sunday when their solo euphonium player Ian Plant emerged from a trip to A&E with his right hand in plaster.

    Thumb plant

    Despite suggestions to the contrary from the more cynical members of the band, it wasn’t a deliberate attempt to spend the day in the bar, just an attempt to plant his thumb with a metal ladder.

    Collins sub

    Thankfully, the band are delighted that John Collins, fresh from his success with Oldham (Lees) at Blackpool, has agreed to step into the seat for the contest. The bands percussion section is also taking advantage of Ian’s good hand and has drafted him in to provide support, albeit that signing on may be a problem.


    The bands MD, Dennis Hadfield is hoping no more accidents beset the band as the timp player had to miss Saturday’s Pennine Festival after suffering concussion during a game of rugby.

    Dennis is a little concerned, and has now added a second MD to the playing ranks, with Tom Haslam who conducted Friezland in the 4th Section playing solo cornet.

    Finally after all those years of trying Planty has managed to get out of playing! A smidge extreme though. Hope he's ok.

    Best of luck to the band for the weekend, possibly see some of you on Sunday, I'm coming down for the top section

    Blimey, dig the cornet are you a teacher, as long as the notes are in the right place who ares about the spieling,

    (george formby) could not read or write, made a fortune.

  11. She works in a school so thats close enough to bein a teacher!

    I cant wait for Saturday, it would be good to see how a class player (i'm guessing so) will play on solo euph after 3 1/2 rehersals.

    How sad are you and Di tho with all the "see you tonight", "best get off to band" having conversations over tMP is a large sign you need to get out more!lol
    I wonder if you get points deducted for language, i fxxkin hope not!!

    wallace and gromit,
    got it wrong again, never mind
    always next year.
    one X conductor said to me we would only last 1 year in the 1st section,
    anyway on my count next year will be the 5th,
    well done we all played well.
