    MD required for Championship Section Brass Band

    Stocksbridge Band is sad to announce that, due to various commitments, it's Musical Director, Derek Renshaw, is stepping down.

    Derek has had a long and successful association with the band both as a player and most recently a conductor. Under Derek's baton, the band lifted the National Finals trophy and gained promotion to the Championship section in 2001. And last year Derek guided the band to our most recent Championship National Finals placing.

    Both Derek and Stocksbridge Band are very sad to part company, and the band would like to thank Derek for his work over the last several years and wish him well in any future endeavours.

    We would also like to extend our thanks to Mr Simon Wood who stepped in to take the band to Pontins and to Mr Billy Rushworth, who is conducting the band at it's forthcoming engagements.

    We are now holding auditions for Musical Directors with ability and drive to develop a highly talented band with a view to consolidate and push forward our position within the Yorkshire Championship Section.

    If you are interested in applying for the position of Musical Director, please e-mail or visit

    Cornets Required in Yorkshire

    Stocksbridge Band (North of Sheffield) are looking for a Tutti Cornet player (Principal chair may be available the the right person) and a Soprano Cornet player to help us bounce straight back into the top section next year.

    We're a friendly lot, currently in the Championship section, going down to the First from January, but have a strong band round the stand and should do well in next years Areas.

    Fancy coming for a blow? Reply here or drop me a PM for further information!

    After a highly successful AGM, we have a reshuffled forward looking committee, and two (count 'em, two!) CD recordings coming up.

    But we still need a solo cornet player and a sop player to fill those pesky empty chairs!

    Hi Nick

    Good luck finding new players but it might help if your website was a bit more up to date.

    Are you going to advertise the band club at all this year?

    It would be nice to know who was playing and when.
