THE PolySteel Band has been consolidating its top quality form displayed so far this year and is raring to go at the forthcoming English Championships. The band welcomes a mix of old and new friends to the ranks to help bolster the already strong band. Graham Cross has returned to the band on 3rd cornet to cover for Dan Sharp and Viki Reynolds will once again play solo horn for the band, having previously displayed some fine quality horn playing. The band also welcomes the return of Josh Hayward on bass trombone. Josh is a member of the Worm Sheed Brass Group and is a graduate of the Welsh College of Music and Drama. Josh has just spent a sabbatical period working and studying in Norway and in September will commence further studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
