Is with great sadness that Langley Band announces the loss of a greatly respected and well loved bandsman. Steve perfromed on bass trombone at the area contest for Langley Band today (06 March 2004). After a fantastic performance, Steve then went on to assist Enderby Band whose Bass Trombone was unable to perform. In the pub afterwards, Steve collapsed and was rushed to hospital following paramedic attention. Very sadly, the medical staff were unable to help and Steve did not recover. This has been a very emotional day for the band and Steve's many friends. The Langley Band would like to dedicate their win at the Midlands area to Steve and our thoughts and best wishes are with his wife at this very sad time.
