    How far back do you want to go? I was there between 1970 - 1978, way, way before your time! The purple shirt day's :cool:

    I joined Rochdale band back in 1990 ish when Nick Childs was conducting. Yikes such a long time ago. Was very, very fortunate to play in the band on the Sovereign Soloists CD.

    Hi Alex,

    I think chizzum is refering to Rochdale youth band ???

    (Don't want to hijack his thread, but it would be a great idea to also have a Rochdale Band reunion sometime)

    Im from rochdale......well Duh!!!! The music centre is really good and full of great people!!!

    I'd recomend it for younger ones that want to learn music but some great names have come from the music centre over the past yeasr going way back like 20 years ago.

    Eg. Stuart Lingard
    Hayley Moore

    Their the only ones ive Heard to have gone to rochdale in the Rochdale music centre band years back but i bet their is more out and about.

    I was also there at the time when Stuart Lingard was there.David Morris was the man in the middle then. It was the best youth band I had ever played for! Some quality players who went on to play for the likes of YBS, Brighouse, Todmorden and Hepworth.
