    I know there are some bands who run their own slow melody contests and are, funny enough, mainly brass bands persons who enter them. My son ,who is a cornet player, has had great times playing in music festivals around the area in the open classes mainly. These offer a different challenge but you play to a wider audience who also appreciate your fine musical skills.
    Well worth a try if your stuck for somewhere to play!!!!
