    if you could choose any band, whether non contesting or championship etc. what band would really want to be a member of?

    (in other words what band is most popular)

    it's a tough decision but it's between Polysteel, Cory and black dyke

    As this is a 'fantasy' type thread, I would like to have been a member of Alex Owen's great Besses band of the 1910's, or perhaps St Hilda's. More modern, perhaps the great CWS Manchester of the 1960's.

    Any Championship band that's not 'up North'. ;)
    Polysteel would be the nearest and I like Mr Harper's conducting style.

    How about the band 'hover'?

    A lot of people seem to have playing experience with this band?
    ;)
