    HBB and I are doing the Whits with our own band, however let us know where your ending up and we'll use some "gentle persuasion" to try and do likewise.

    Last year we were still playing at 11:30!, last band on at Uppermill!

    Wish I could do this with you lot but we do tend to have a lot of fun doing it with Emley too!!
    Would be good if we could bump in to you at one of the villages just to see what you sound like!!
    What do you do for uniforms by the way?? Wear your own bands threads or what?

    Only just spied this thread!!

    I will be there with Bakewell i'm afraid. We also usually have a few people from Darley Dale and Shirebrook with us too.

    And we usually end up at Delph!!

    I would love to see some of you guys though so keep us updated with your proposed route!

    Cheers

    I'd love to do this it sounds like great fun! Only when exactly is it as I may be required at work. Work in Private school and they don't have a proper half term in the summer. I'll play any cornet position except sop, pref backrow but on front row at mo. :D

    Damn shame. Well in that case, I am availabubble. As before, preferably Eb Bass, but BBb at a push (with good notice).

    P.S. For sale, One arrangement of The Muppet Show. One not-so-careful arranger. 2 pints Boddingtons ONO.

    Stick a couple more shedbuilders in, and I reckon we could manage a band! (Cue percussionists saying "Me too!"...)

    Can you please add a bass trom and a percussionist to the list of people, they're not on this list as far as I know (lack of internet access i'm afraid) but we'll all be up that weekend so can't hurt for them to play to? :)

    Cheers!

    who actually plays is up to whoever is decided upon by the admin team, but taking turns sounds like a good plan!

    following developments at the YBS bandroom, I am now unavailable for the tMP band this year. :(

    However, you may have noticed the amount of changes my situation is going through - so this all may change!!! Will keep updated! :lol:
