    Oops! Referring to the previous message, the rehearsals should say "Wednesday and Friday". I think my typing fingering is about as good as my cornet fingering!

    4thmandown wants to get back to 4th man down

    Shirley Band are looking to recruit some cornet players to fill up our ranks and to allow me to return to my true calling as the shoveller of the cornet section, instead of having to be 2nd man down and splitting loads of high notes!

    It would also be great to have some cornet players joining our back row, as for some bizarre reason our utility Rep/2nd/3rd/Flugel player Alan is moving to Australia in the New Year (no chance of a decent beer there Al!).

    We rehearse on a Wednesday and Friday at Light Hall School in Shirley from 8.00 till 10.00. The school is located on Hathaway Road, just off the A34 in the middle of Shirley and just 2 miles from Junction 4 of the M42.

    We're a friendly and sociable bunch, with an irrepressible sense of humour, as many guest players can testify, which is essential at contests.

    If you fancy coming along, then you can either PM me, or contact me on 07821 924759.

    Shirley Band are looking to recruit players of the following to complete and complement our line up ahead of a busy summer schedule including the Weston-Super-Mare and Wychavon contests.

    Front Row Cornet
    Back Row Cornet

    Among our number we have some very talented players, under the superb direction of Alwyn Green (of the CBSO), but who together make a friendly and sociable band - as the recent Pontins and Area contest have proved (despite 4BR chosing to ignore us!). Players of other instruments are also very, very welcome to come along.

    At present we rehearse every Wednesday and Friday at Light Hall School in Shirley from 8.00 till 10.00. The school is on Hathaway Road, Shirley, just off the A34 Stratford Road and only a couple of miles from Junction 4 of the M42.

    The Shirley Band, probably the friendliest band in the Midlands, hope that a couple of cornet players and a tenor trombone will boost our ranks and help us continue to challenge for contest honours on a regular basis following our superb result at Weston Contest.

    Among our number we have some very talented players, (in the words of Philip Wilby "eloquent soloists"!) under the superb direction of Alwyn Green (of the CBSO), but who together make a friendly and sociable band. Players of other instruments are also very, very welcome to come along.

    Cornet players; are you looking for a superb opportunity to lead a first-class cornet team?

    The Shirley Band now have the position of Principal Cornet available for a suitable applicant. Any other Front Row cornets in particular will be more than welcome as we look to build on our excellent 2nd place at Weston Contest and challenge for honours in the future.

    Studying in Birmingham?

    If so, and you are looking for a band, The Shirley Band will provide a warm welcome.

    We're a very friendly, hard-working and sociable band, based in the town of Shirley about 4 miles south of Birmingham City Centre. We currently inhabit the upper reaches of 1st Section, and are looking to build on our successes so far this year (7/18 at the areas and 2nd at Weston) in the coming contest season.

    Players of any instrument are welcome, especially trombones and cornets, to enhance our existing team. Lifts can be arranged from most parts of the West Midlands.

    Interested? Then PM me, or contact Brian Johnson via our (under-construction) website www.shirleyband.co.uk.
