    Just to say I concur with bass mittens - it's great to play in front of such a keen and appreciative audience, long may the band club continue!


    And bass mittens - you need to take up a smaller instrument....... ;)

    Like my band colleague, I really enjoyed playing at Niagara last night. It was hard work, but the full and enthusiastic audience gave the players a lift and made it a very enjoyable occasion.

    To Edward and other members of Stockbridge who are there week in week out, hats off to you. The band club is great as it offers audiences a varied selection of bands for free. It also gives bands the opportunity to showcase their talents and progress.

    Glad the concert was enjoyed, and hope to perform at the club next year.

    Dale Garner.

    Cheers for that Dale, I think you've managed to sum up exactly what the band club is all about. It is extremely hard work keeping it going, financially and just sheer effort. but it's most definitely worth it in lots of ways.

    On that note, if anyone has any contacts who may be interested to give their name to the season, or just an invidual concert in a form of sponsorship please let me know. If we can secure some funding in this way, we can keep the club going and growing.

    You've ruined the suprise Ed! I was expecting not to know the pieces until they appeared on the stand in front of me. Looking forward to it, should be a very entertaining night.

    Thought I better give everyone the chance to know what they're going to be sightreading!. You're right, will be great fun.

    Edward a big thanks for last night. Just shows what can be done when you have a positive frame of mind and some very useful phone numbers.

    It was as you had wanted a fun night and there was plenty of concentration round the stands, the audience clearly enjoyed it and lets hope the numbers stay high for the last concerts of the season.

    Fantastic playing in a 7 man bass team - and all playing with such subtlety and a delicate touch :)

    Yeah I have to agree it was a great night and sounded fantastic! I got asked by one of the basses why I hadn't played, "we only had one flugel!"

    I wish I had now!

    thanks for that Fran. Glad you could do it.
    everyone did really well, and it seemed to go down well with the audience. Loads of great comments after.
    Even though it was all fun stuff, ut was actually a really tough programme, amazed it held togethor so well with everyone sightreading. brilliant stuff :)
    Glad I don't have to do that everyweek, was giving me nightmares lol

    It was great to perform with everyone, thanks ed for arrange this on such short notice.
    I had only ever seen one of those pieces of music before in my life, and then it wasn't the same part. Great job everyone and i hope a band like this happens again soon i enjoyed it so much

    Got to agree, great program which was played well. When i saw Festive Overture, i thought what have i let myself in for but we got through it and all the worry went. Lol! Choral and Rock-out was good and i thought the drum fill at the end was great and even with the kit falling to bits and sticks flying everywhere.
    Bring on this again as it was a great evening of entertainment for eveyone.

    Have to agree with all the other comments. Was very enjoyable to play in, and seemed to go down well. Had only played 3 or 4 of them before, so was a good sight reading test. Seven basses, its the future!

    I thought it was a good night too! Though it had been giving MD nightmares prior to the concert! LOL! Really enjoyed playing again, makes a change from sitting and listening! Must get my lip back in though! Well done Edward x
