    well firstly, unlike a previous thread i posted about wanting to find another band, this thread is for real and i am currently bandless.

    im looking for a band any standard around Plymouth/Exter sort of area. i will be studying at Salford uni in September 06 (music) and am grade 8.

    i will be working with South West Water in Exeter for my gap year, so it gives me quite a bit of flexibility within the southwest.

    my personal email is the best to contact me, will reply as quickly as i can!

    If you don't mind travelling you could come to my band! We have two people that come from exeter that would almost certainly be more than happy too give you a lift to band!
    We're third section but improving (gradually :tongue:) and we're playing at Exmouth Contest next month aswell :D

    and i'm sure you'd fit right in! we already have 3 steves! :p

    I used to go to Exeter Uni and have played for a number of bands down that way!
    Lympstone SWT Brass band are a fantastic bunch of people and are a good band. They are probably the closest to Exeter as they rehearse in Lympstone village, just on the way to Exmouth. They are a good 2nd section band.

    Torbay Brass rehearse in Torquay and were a good laugh when I was there. They were 1st section when I was there.

    South Molten were also there or there abouts, although I never actually got to play with them while at uni. Heard some interesting stories though!!

    Totnes are also around the Torquay ish way. Main rivals of Torbay so I don't know a great deal more about them.
    There is also Soundhouse, Crownhill (Plymouth) and then others further out into the wilderness.

    If you are happy with travelling and want championship level bands, then your best bets maybe City of Bristol, Polysteel Flowers or Bodmin from Exeter but that will take more time out of your life. Feel free to contact me via MSN or PM me if you want to know more about these bands.

    If remember correctly, their website had been subjected to a raid by hackers, and the link was removed. Hopefully someone can come up with an up-to-date contact for you.
