    Hello Everyone

    Apologies the show is a few days late but I have been off ill – so here it is, better late than never.

    Originally formed as the Yorkshire Copper Works Band at Stourton near Leeds where the factory was based and then in 1958 it became affectionately known as ‘ The Yorkshire Imps.’ With roots taken from the old Stourton Band of the 1930’s and a merger with Rothwell in 1999 the current line up are rightly proud of their provenance.

    Represented Yorkshire some 20 times at the National Finals beginning in 1946, conducted Sam B. Wood and placed on no less than 15 occasions. Success in the Yorkshire Area includes 24 top three places and 9 wins. A hat trick of victories during 1977-8-9, a runner up at the National Finals in 1976 and taking the National crown with Denis Carr in 1978 firmly placed the Imps at the pinnacle of the premier division of banding. The only year during this decade that the band did not finish in Yorkshires top 4 was when they won the nationals and therefore were not required to qualify through the regions

    A 1979 recording of Checkmate is on this show - enjoy
