    i really like Cory. They are sounding so good recently.
    I was also very impressed with Flowers when I heard them at Wychavon entertainments contest. I am surprised they aren't ranked higher than they are!

    Who do you think is the best band around?

    How did Tredegar get into a list like this that doesn't contain Black Dyke???

    Well... there is an "other" option...


    Not too sure bands would like to be grouped under "other", though.... Never mind!

    Favourite Band

    Well Cory get my vote on your list. I also can't understand why Dyke isn't there! However for sheer musical genius and and an experience never to miss , Foden's playing anything with Tovey in front of them!!

    Well thank you for your compliment Bill! Yeah I have to admit I did miss out dyke and fodens but I think you might have to correct your last statement
    ...are you saying cory is not a top band?

    p.s good start.....insults........ the best way to make yourself popular !

    There is no band on the list that has had the succes for such a sustained period as Dyke have. Don't take my word for it, check the records for the Open and Nationals, and of course double figures for the European.
    And Fodens in it's various guises had a very successful couple of decades recently.
    Not wanting to be insulting to Tredegar, they are simply not in the same league as the others in the list.
    Even Cory have had a number of pretty lean years......

    Spot on mate. Can't agree more in terms of 'historical consistency'. But let's be fair about Tredegar. Of course they are in the same league as the others ,just a few places below over the course of a season, on their day they are caperble of winning anything.

    :cry: sorry if I upset anyone about my remark about people not being in the real banding world I was just upset that my favs the DYKE were not in the list, bandsmen/women are the tops

    For my money, the best band around is Imps!

    Seriously though folks, the best two bands at the moment, for my money, are Dyke and Fodens.

    my opinion would be fairies and fodens, in the order with ybs not far behind.

    I dont see Besses in the list either :wink:

    I attended the Grimethorpe concert at Symphony Hall, Birmingham yesterday and I must admit the band where absolutely stunning.

    I also attended a Black Dyke concert in Llangollen the week before and they too were excellent.

    But I would certainly put money on Grimethorpe winning through to the Finals, and on the form I heard yesterday will probably win the Finals too.

    It was worth the £10 entrance fee just to hear Richard Marshall and Nigel Fielding.

    Thanks to the guys at 'Grimey' for a great afternoon's entertainment.
