    Who is going to be playing at the Whit Friday Marches?

    We are getting a scratch band together. If you are not currently going but fancy tagging along you will be made very welcome. We have a coach going from Sheffield. PM me or reply to this thread if you would like any more info. :D :D 8)

    Well it looks good for us going. Though we may end up with the smallest band! (we're short about 10 player at the moment) so if anyone in the London area fancies going let me know (send me a pm and I'll let you know the details).

    I think we're going anyway so can't help out, but I hope a few tMP'ers will make themselves known. There are at least 3 of us in the band...yorkie19, impycornet and myself. I'm difficult to miss....being about a foot taller than everyone else on the back row. It's always a good day out, so we'll look forward to sharing a beer or two with the tMP crowd.

    well i am definately going to be up for a few drinks! It should be a good day...

    I know that myself, Raspberry, Timbloke, Pythagorus and probably GeordieColin will be going along with us and we have had some interest from other tMP members so maybe it might turn out to be a half tMP.com Band!

    We will be rehearsing Thursday 12th June (the day before Marches). The coach leaves at 3pm Friday 13th. Uniform is Black Trousers and Black Jacket with your own Band tie. A can of beer needed for the raffle on the coach and lots of enthusiasm for a great day.

    We will still welcome other players!

    Some accomodation can be found with Band members.

    If you are interested and haven't yet contacted me then either PM me or email xrayx19@hotmail.com.

    Hey Michelle welcome aboard!

    Don't worry if I haven't phoned you yet....I am just collecting numbers and then will be phoning around everyone to confirm etc. I will be in touch ASAP (hopefully by next week)

    It's early days yet and I don't fore-see us having probs filling the places.

    We are looking for a Tenor Trom, Solo Euph, Sop and a BBb Bass currently.

    Anyone else interested contact me.

    Not sure if Matlock are going along but if not I'll come along on euph! :lol:

    To be honest, half the band went down last year to help a local band and although it has been talked about I don't think anything has been done as yet.

    Will not know until Sunday now though but if you want to send me a contact number I'll let you know?

    Also if Matlock aren't going, then some of their players may also be interested in tagging along?
