    ....and what did I ever do to you eh? :rolleyes:

    But hey, it's no problem, I'm not taking my own drum kit, so, Soundhouse Brass can charge you for a nice new set of skins and I can have an hour or so to fix them on and fine tune them so I sound even better.... :) nice idea :wink:



    :tup :tup

    That's no way to talk about my tenor horn playing! I may not be Sheona White, but I play some of the right notes and sometimes at the right time!

    Right! I was going to let you buy me a Big Mac and Large Fries, but as you are being a meany, I'll buy my own! (Or perhaps I'll let Naruco pay. I am a 'pensioner' after all! Albeit a Police one and not Old Age one, yet!)

    The workshop is aimed mainly at lower section bands, although of course all brass players are welcome, and they ask publishers to give samples of new music that is out n about... the band play loads of pieces and do a mini concert at the end of the weekend... there's sectionals during the course, and loads of tea, coffee and biscuits too!! :p

    Goff Richards leads the course each year, along with 2 guest conductors... in the past they have had Steve Sykes, Richards Evans, Stan L(surname please....!!??), Malcomn Brownbill, Leonard Adams etc etc etc...

    This year Philip Harper and Duncan Beckley are there, along with Goff of course.

    Percussion is on invite each year... I've done kit for the last 5 years for it!

    Well judging by this thread, Naruco better bring her cornet, then we might manage a trio. I'll take my cornet too, so that we can have a sectional! :D

    My t'other half will be there on Sop as well.
    Seems to be a lack of people in the South West (Devon/Cornwall) area that should be registered on tmp though...
    I'm betting they'll be nearly a hundred brass types there... tends to vary from 80ish to 120ish year to year....

    ;-)
