After lots of lurking and reading thought I had finally better register and introduce myself! I've been out of the banding scene for a while (went to the darkside and been playing classic jazz) but I do pop back in from time to time to play with Arrow Valley Brass. Previously though I worked through the ranks of Avonbank, did a stint at Eccles Borough band at Uni, and then for a number of years at Stourport Band. Have been known to dep for anyone that'll have me around the midlands too! I also subscribed to the Brass Band Mailing List when I first discovered the Internet, and have recognised a few names from there so 'Hi' to anyone I might have discussed anything with back then. Cheers.
