tMP Contest

Discussion in 'The Rehearsal Room' started by JessopSmythe, Nov 23, 2003.


What dya think about a tMP contest

  1. I'd love to take part

  2. Might not want to play but it's a good idea

  3. What a load of *beep*. Thats a 1 am in the bar idea if I ever heard one

    Just an idea I was floating over a few pints with Bigmamabadger after the CiN event.

    How about forming a number of tMP bands, one representing each contesting area and having a bit of fun at our own entertainments contest?

    Needs a bit of work but I'm sure it's feasable.

    I'm sure with Roger at the helm we could quite easily whip a few other regions asses! :lol:

    Sounds like a good idea to me...

    As a non contesting member of TMP would that have to mean I would need to register somewhere? Excuse my ignorance but the last time I was registered with a band was back in blah blah 80 something :!: :!:

    Yep. I'll quite happily represent the Midlands. Brass Bands are probably the only thing I don't want Yorkshire clubs to win!

    Like I said, some details would need working on, but I reckon that between us we could work something out.

    Just to let you all know the team have already taken the idea on board and are already making plans!

    may I suggest that it would be members only, and official registration with the registry would not be required.

    also, how about a gala concert style band/10 piece/quintet doing something as a gala concert type thing?

    Yep, Vicki and I can join in for the Midlands (as long as it doesn't clash with prior engagements!) :D :D

    by the way, are we doing it by region lived in, or region you play in?

    Sounds like fun.

    Or if not a contest, how about a proms concert (2nd half fancy dress essential!) with money from the door going to charity?

    Just thinking that proms concerts are always a scream, everyone knows the pieces, and the audiences appreciate them!

    Does tMP have enough NYBBG and/or NYBBS/NYBBW members, (ex, current or pending) to create a band/s to enter this contest :?:

    Id drag my bone out for a contest like this (Representing Scotland naturally). Great idea if it could work.
