    Thanks for your reply Katie. Have circumstances changed, as I tried to get in the band before on a couple occasions when I was in London and was looking for a sop seat but was firmly told by Jason Pickin I had to be flexible and able to play B flat cornet also and the band wouldn't give me a sop seat.

    Try Epsom & Ewell Silver Band, 1st Section. Don't know if they're looking for a sop but you could look on their website. They are a nice friendly band, my brother and sister in law play for them! Google the name EESB and it should give you the web address for the band. Hope you get fixed up!

    This is definitely a sop vacancy. If you can make it we're playing Carnival Romain at the Area and it would ease matters to have a permanent sop on board.

    Next rehearsal is 21 February, please feel free to drop in.

    Just to let you know, we're having tomorrow night (monday 21st) off. After the hard work that went into coming 4th in the Welsh Open Entertainments Contest yesterday we thought we'd have a short rest before the final push to the area.

    If you are interested in playing with us please make contact via our web site.
  12. Good luck Iain,
    lots of nice offers here, someone will get a good Sop soon!
    Will miss seeing your lovely face around the area again.

The band is well supported and has an average attendance of 25 players each week at rehearsals. For further details please visit the band's website - You would be most welcome to come along to next Monday's rehearsal to have a 'blow' and meet members of the band, and find out whether we are a band you may like to consider joining. We look forward to hearing from you.
