    BBb Bass, Stockport Brass (Formally BT Band) – Championship Section – NW Area Blackpool – 9th March 2008, plus rehearsals prior.

    Unfortunately I need to try and find a dep for myself for the area contest at Blackpool, those of you that know me will be aware that Lois (my wife) and I are proud parents of our beautiful little girl Charlotte. However Charlotte was born with a condition called “craniosynostosis ” which means she has no soft spot on her skull and as a consequence needs quite major surgery to correct this as her skull is not growing correctly. We now have a date for this operation as Monday 10th March.

    So as you can imagine I will not be in any frame of mind to play at the areas the day before. Therefore if there is any BBb Bass players out there that are of a suitable level that have not yet been signed up to play at the areas, if so please contact either our MD Mike Fowles on 07976232446 or myself on 07973852051

    Many thanks

    We all hope everything goes well with the operation Marcus. To anyone that can help out we're a very friendly bunch so give us a shout!

    I'm so sorry to hear about that Marcus. I'd volunteer myself if the registry didn't prohibit it. After all I certainly owe you a couple of favours!

    (That said, I can see Mike's face now if I showed up. "Oh no, not Cookie again!!!!!")

    Wishing you, your missus and your daughter all the best at this difficult time.

    I must thank everybody for their good wishes, however as of yet I have not had a positive response for help to cover my chair.

    So again any bass players out there that are still at a loose end please contact either Mike or myself

    Many thanks
