    Hi All

    Whilst playing with my current band (non contesting) I am also on the lookout for another band to join/have a blow with.
    I'm an ex army solo cornet player and generally hold principal seats at all levels however I would look at a solo cornet seat.
    Well attended rehearsals by a band are a must for me and in return I give superb commitment.
    I currently travel to leeds from cheshire for rehearsals so willing to travel within reason.

    Hi Louise

    Tintwistle are a very welcoming and ambitious band who have well attended rehearsals, although we are lacking 2 or 3 cornets.

    We are currently looking to recruit an Assistant Principal Cornet and Soprano Cornet, so if you are interested in either position, give me a ring on 07930-165212 or 0114-288-3321 (evenings).

    Sorry Louise but must agree with Dave, a simple reply would be nice, even if you have decided to go elsewhere. Bands wouldn't be offended but at least they would know. The same goes for private messaging.

    Cheers .
