    I'm confused; is this the same as the "British Army Brass Band", or different ... ?

    Different - solely Guards personnel as far as I know. I only got the info from Rachel Smith at the Grimethorpe concert yesterday, and when I can find some more details I'll do an update.

    Unfortunately I shan't be able to get along on Thursday as we have the funeral of one of our Hadleigh bandsmen that lunchtime. I would encourage anyone to support this venture if you are free.

    Not the same Gareth, two different bands but both of which I'm involved. Both bands have a similar agenda, to be used as a recruiting tool and show the versatility of the army brass musician.
