    :clap: :clap: Smithills School Senior Brass Band have been asked by composer Howard Goodall to record a new version of the theme tune to The Vicar Of Dibley. This is great news as there will be a CD brought out later in the year by EMI & the band will receive royalties.

    So, a big congratulations to Chris Wormald & all my ickle buddies at Smithills including matti_raz. What a scoop eh?! Smithills version will be heard on the Christmas specials commissioned by the BBC :clap: :clap:

    No-one can argue with the success Chris has had with that band. I think it's safe to say the future of banding in Bolton is safe in his hands! Good luck to Smithalls and all they do.

    You'll have to let us know what where and when for the cd when it comes out. Well dom Smivies ! ! ! !
  12. Stunning work he has done. I've seem them at the schools prom at the RAH and they were a super band. Don't they have bands in separate school years there too?

    I'd say banding is safe in bolton unless Peter kay takes up brass.

    Is this the way to amarillo for brass anyone? :D

    No they don't have bands in seperate school years. That would be Wardle (at least they used to, not sure about now!)

    Unfortunately, banding isn't SAFE in Bolton. :confused: The problem is getting the kids to join local bands in the community. Hoover has just 4 members of Smithills within our ranks. A lot of the kids just simply don't have the time to play outside of school. They're extremely busy with the school band, that on top of their studies!! One local band just recently nearly folded, but thankfully that didn't happen & they are on the up again (fingers crossed!!) :clap:

    Don't forget to watch V of D tonight. Not only do Smithills perform the music, Joanna Hurst (or is it Hirst?), principal cornet with Smithills and Hoover Bolton, is playing a star role during the service!! :clap:
  15. well done! congratulations! i also love the vicar of dibley and will be watching lol!

    The Band missed the deadline for recording the theme tune due to problem after problem; although Chris Wormald and Joanna Hurst are on Granada Reports tomorrow night explaining how they recorded etc.... and yes it was Jo being back by the fabulous Mr Goodall on Organ in his front room (trickery eh?)... she was in the church and if you looked real close you might have spotted her but not if you knew where and when she was....

    I believe that any Royalties will be shared by the copyright holder (generally the publisher) and the composer. Generally performer(s) get a fee.
