In my limited experience of banding. I often wonder what the top section bands give to banding in general? Are they good for banding? Do they put anything into the banding movement? Or do they just take? If they need a new player, do they train new players in a training band or just rely on their name to recruit from another band who then does the same. When it is then left to the lower section bands to do all the training of new and young players. Are top section bands willing to play to their local populations in supermarkets and local markets or are they totally contest and large concert orientated. No offence meant by these questions. Just interested to know the answers and of course peoples views on the subject.
