    Ripon city band seeks committed players that are up to the grade. After coming 5th in our first appearance in the 3rd section, we have continued this and done well at Ripon contest and also Kirkby Lonsdale.
    All though we are fielding a full band on most events some of our members are not able to commit full time due to work and family commitments and some are old members hanging in there till we can fill that seat, we are trying to swell the band so we have full commitment from a 25 peace band. To enable us to do this we need the following.

    Sop Cornet
    Principle Cornet
    Front row cornet
    Back row
    1st Horn
    Bb basses

    We are after taking the band further and to do this we need committed players at all times, who want to move forward with the band.

    If you are interested in joining a forward moving 3rd section band and think you are up to standard please contact me
    Come for a blow and see what you think or just a listen and have a drink!!!!!!!

    Hope to come along for a blow - but to help out on the logistics during the house move, can you lend me a bass for the evening?

    Your web site is one of the best I have seen for a long time. Sounds like Ripon get some really plum jobs to do. Doing the Brassed Off stage production looks like it will be fun.

    Principal Cornet

    The Ripon City Band, is in desperate need, of a Principal Cornet and other front row players. Due to work and family commitments we have dropped down to one committed player on the front, who is working hard and doing his best. BUT he and I would like to see some more peeps on the front row.

    ARE YOU!!!!!!!!!

    1. A solo cornet in a 2nd or 1st section band. Why not drop a section and have a go at the top seat.

    2. A back row player that wants to get on the front?

    3. Just someone that wants a change.

    We are a welcoming band with our own social club which has CHEEP beer.

    If you just fancy a blow pop down.
