    Hi Folks

    After leaving a band following nearly five years of being principal cornet with 100% attendance at rehearsals and engagements , I am looking to spread my wings and look at either a full time new band/quintet etc or to do a lot of depping.
    I now live in South Yorkshire (S71) and am an ex army professional musician with own transport.

    I am also MD of a concert band and so would not be able to attend rehearsals on a Thursday night or Sunday morning.

    Please feel free to contact me and I will reply to all messages.
    Many Thanks

    Hi Louise,

    Deepcar band (currently 4th Section) are looking for a principal cornet player at present. We are only 10 miles from Barnsley, Sheffield and Huddersfield (so well within reach of S71).

    We are an ambitious band, with well attended rehearsals and a good bandroom atmosphere. Come along and have a blow, or just come for a listen one night if you fancy.

    We rehearse Monday and Friday evenings in Deepcar. PM me if you are interested or if you want to ask anything else.

    Hope we might see you soon!

    Thanks for the offers both public and private. I have now made a decision on my future band and have decided to carry on depping for the meantime. Its been a priveledge to get out and meet so many nice people so certainly for a while thats my plan.
    Thanks again though
