    Re: Eb Bass and Percussionist Required

    Hey, it's a bit much threatening to "fill someone in" just because they happen to be interested in joining your band :!: :wink: :lol:

    Seriously, good to have you posting, and hope you manage to fill the vacant positions before long.

    Welcome aboard C and well done at Hardraw Scar. (Must have been that Maestoso!) Is that where you found the sheep?

    Best of luck with the hunt for players - will keep my ear to the ground.

    Re; EbBass and Percussionist

    Two replies so quickley. Thanks
    Peter - It's part of the inititation is filling in and also was worried about whether I had made a "pudding" (dessert) out of our kit player leaving!!
    D - Yes, lots of Maestoso, plenty of beer and a few sheep for good measure. Good day all round and a whopper of a trophy. New shelf required.

    It was possible two cottages many many years ago, but before the bandmen converted it into a band room it was infact a Pigsty!

    Wetherby band actually have a really set up.
    The band room is good, there are many very dedicated players as well as an exceptionally dedicated MD and Wetherby itself is a good place to rehear$e - Hardly and danger of your car being damaged mid rehearsal (which has happened to some people i know at other bands!), there are also so nice watering holes nearby for the after rehaearsal tipples. They even have the occasional social event!!:)

    For those Cornets, Euph players ar pot bashers moving to the area, or with nothing to do on Tuesday & Friday or if your not happy where you are, then i'd highly recommend a visit!!:tup

    Yess, the bandroom was a pig sty but it certainly is not now. Also, having finished last in the area championships in 2004, we climbed to 4th this year and a similar result in 2006 could se us challenging for 1st section in 2007. We enjoy our banding so come and join now a friendly forward thinking band and have the benefit of playing in a lovely market town with, as has been said, some good watering holes.

    Who can resist an offer like that! Get yourselves down for a blow - a more than friendly atmosphere and a band doing some really good things. Had the chance to play with them for the first time in 3 years since going to Uni at the weekend - sounding better than ever. I'm sure you'd be more than welcome in an ever improving band.

    Good luck in finding people,

  19. Wetherby Silver Band are very pleased to announce that we have signed Chris Bates on Solo Euphonium. Chris made his debut with the band this evening, with an excellent performance of Grandfathers Clock at the annual Christmas concert in Wetherby.

    This leaves us with just a solo cornet vacancy, to help out our three dedicated solo cornets Andrew Yeomans, Nigel Franks and John Scruton.

    We'd also like a regular percussionist, as ours all have regular playing engagements that keep them away from rehearsals!
