    We are urgently looking for adventurous trumpet players who like a challenge, to help out The Sultans of Swing for a fundraising event for our local hospital.

    On Sat 14[SUP]th[/SUP] June we have been asked to play at an evening dinner dance to raise funds for Airedale General Hospital’s Endoscopy Suite at the Craiglands Hotel, Ilkley, LS29 8RQ. We will play 2 sets of lively and fun to play big band/swing numbers to a packed and dancing (hopefully!) audience on a lovely, tiered stage in the Ballroom at the Craiglands.

    If you’ve not played big band stuff for a while or would like to try the genre, this would be a real opportunity to come along and have a go, with a final goal (the gig itself) in mind. Great sight reading practice and the chance to play with a really friendly and welcoming bunch of musicians who enjoy swing music! Have a look at our website and check out the pics and sound there to give you an idea of what we're all about.

    Ideally you will be grade 5+ or there and thereabouts, and we’d be grateful if you could get in touch as soon as possible if you’re able to help us out, either here on tMP or via our email directly (see below).

    Please note that as this is a fundraising event and all proceeds including the band’s fees are going towards the Endoscopy Suite at Airedale Hospital, so we will only be able to pay minimal expenses.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this post and we hope to hear from you budding swing trumpeters very soon to help us out with such a worthy cause!
