    Top seat second seat rep seat 2nd 3rd bar proper upper Eb Bb Cymbals Triangle

    Like LNA says

    Ripon have space on all cornet seats for committed players. We do understand work and family commitments and we like a pint or 8 after band (8 when wife will drive) (like tonight)

    We do have players who can’t commit fully which is why we have so many spaces as an (associate player) who doesn’t hold a seat. (AP) players come when they can and are valued members, but we need to build the full timers back ready for the areas.

    POP down for a blow (brass players) a bang (perc players) or just a pint ALL PLAYERS.

    RIPON CITY BAND. On the move upwards, with YOUR HELP

    LNA will even let you buy her a drink in the bar after ;););)

    fhorny: I think you know full well where Ripon is - seeing as you have it in your profile as your location, and have mentioned in your only other post on tMP that you play for Ripon Band. ;)

    Can we please not 'bump' recruitment threads - we need to be fair to all bands who are looking for players.

    After the xmas period we hope to get sorted and get our selves down to the areas, but to enable us to do this we do need to fill at least three of our seats.
    We need an Eb bass, Back row cornets and front row cornets to enable us to go to the areas. We also need bass trom Bb Bass and any more perc players.

    So if your in a none contesting band or even want a different seat than you have at your own band please get in touch.

    You can contact me in confidence


    Any ex members are welcome to contact me even if you were part of the wakeman spilt all those years back.

    Help us keep Ripon going.

    Requirements to join Ripon City

    1. must be a big drinker
    2. (for the main band) must be able to play
    3. (for the training band) must have the potential to be a big drinker!!!!

    We still have space for all cornets Bass trombone, both basses and Simon would like a little friend or two to stand at the back and help him make his shed.


    So come and join us show the north just how good Ripon City Band is.

    As I have said above if you are a past member of Ripon why not return.

    Full Band

    Ripon City Band will be hosting a full band for the Areas this March APART FROM us now needing a kit player. We have a timp and glock player but have lost our kit player due to work commitments over the next 3months.

    After the areas we will still need some full time players. Although, we welcome anyone who wants to become an Associate player (AP). (AP's) don't hold a full time seat but are still fully paid up members who we couldn’t survive without.

    So if you like what we do at the areas and want to join us.

Front row and back row cornets would be welcomed with open arms! Visit our website, for more information about us. Cheers!

    Ahh, Ripon band club, I remember pulling pints behind that bar (if its the same one) back when I was in short trousers - what a long time ago. I played there with my dad (bass trom), Colin Outhwaite on prin cornet and a guy called Norman ....... surname escapes me conducting. many happy hours spent at that lovely club.............. I must have a look at your website to bring back more memories
