    Press Release- Kippax Band

    The Kippax Band are proud to announce the appointment of Jim Davies as their new Musical Director.

    Replacing previous MD Ian Colley Jim arrives with a fine pedigree in the brass band world.

    As a player Jim occupied the principal cornet chair with many notable bands such as Cory and Brighouse and Rastrick, enjoying obvious success with both bands.

    Again as a conductor Jim has achieved fantastic success with such bands as Tredegar and Carlton Main, as well as encouraging youth participation in the movement with the Gwynedd County and Kirklees youth bands.

    After a long series of auditions the Kippax Band are excited with the prospect of working with Jim, and hope this will signal a long period of mutual success.

    Congratulations David. Jim doesn't take any prisoners and playing under his direction during my brief spell with Ammanford when we won the 2nd division championships in Preston was a worthwhile experience. By the way he also likes a pint or two!!
