Here is a question from someone who is real curious. How do the Big bands, ie Black Dyke, Grimethorpe, Brighouse and others actually recruit players?? I had the priviledge of seeing Grimethorpe here in Australia last month, (wow) and am real curious as to how they actually do it. I mean, the top cornet (Fountain) was just amazing but so was their last top man. Where did he go and why, and do the big boys just head hunt who they want to make the move. Looking at the DVD of their performances over the past few years, there seems to be a huge turn over in players. I know this is a stupid thread to start, but for someone who will never be much of a player, I am just curious!!
