    Portsmouth City Band are currently looking for a Musical Director after the last one decided to retire after the christmas season. At present we are a non-contesting band and the feeling is that most want to stay that way. We do many gigs in a year of various types from fetes to masonic lodges to playing in the Historic Dockyard.
    We rehearse on monday and thursday evenings 8-9.30pm, in our own bandroom in Hambrook Street, Southsea.
    We also need cornet players,a horn player and bass players.

    Anyone interested in these postions should PM me for more details.

    The facts

    I was never MD of the Portsmouth City Band. I would have been proud to have been but not with the current dictatorship in place.

    'twas ever thus and has been to the detriment of a band that I was proud to serve for so many years.

    They missed a trick with you, George.

    Success

    Thanks for those kind words (I know who you are!!)

    I improved them in the short time i worked with them. Even won them a compitition. But as you know with their set up, music comes a very poor second.

    When you are stopped from improving the band and trying to put right more senior players so as the youngsters don't pick up bad habits, then it's time to give up.

    Half of the kids don't even sit right or hold the instument correctly. What chance have they got?
