    Bad news guys, seeing as BBS aren't going down til Sunday, I I'm unable to commit to the Tmp Band anymore. I'll try my best to get down Saturday, depending on rehearsals in Barnsley etc, but I'm not holding out much hope...

    hi there, my plans have also changed due to family problems and rehearsal times so I may just listen if I'm free instead of playing, all the best with it anyway. Hope somebody takes some nice piccies!!

    how will the Bb cornet players (not that i need 2 know) know what seat they are sitting in? i presume the 1st rehearsal will be to sort out positions? or is it a pre-decided thing?
