    I am looking for a position within a West Midlands band.
    Most recently played in a Championship section band but that is not important. (08 area).
    I am flexible re: instrument, having played solo euph, bari, horn and Eb bass at championship level.
    Friendly atmosphere and ease of travel are my main priorities.
    Contact me on 07796398640.
    Thankyou.

    Indeed, the acoustic delights of the sheets suspended from the ceiling and wondering if your car would be clamped when you left!
    Happy days though!

    After the dust has settled from this weekend's efforts in Bedworth, surely there is a band looking to strengthen their euph/bari section?
    Still looking, still hoping to keep it in the West midlands, or as near as dammit!

    Experienced Euphonium/Baritone player still available to play for band in Midlands area.
    Can't be bothered with 'Weight-watchers', so looking for something else to occupy my evenings, rather than the tele!
    May have a few cobwebs but able to provide a good sound and technique.

    I can't believe that I still haven't found a band in 3 months!!!
    Maybe 'West Midlands' was a little optimistic?
    Experienced player requires band in the west Midlands/ Staffordshire/ Leicestershire area.
    Wlling to travel (within reason).
    Offer me a top seat on Euph/ Bari/ Horn or Eb.
    Thanks.

    Thankyou, to both of you but the travelling distances would be just too far.
    I actually live in the Walsall area, nearer to the A5 and A38, than the motorway network.
    Sorry. Thanks for your interest.
    Mark.
