    Please see the last entry in this thread for our current vacancies. Thanks :)





    The Wigston band currently has a vacancy for an Eb or BBb bass to complete it's line up. We are a friendly and progressive band, with a busy schedule over the summer months, culminating in a trip to Harrogate to compete in the Second Section National Finals. We hope that the trip North will set us up well for a quick return to the First Section.

    If you're a bass player in and around the Leicestershire area why not look us up? We rehearse in Wigston, just a few minutes from M1 Junction 21 / M69 Junction 1 and within easy distance of the whole county (and beyond!).

    Interested? Then PM me or contact me on 0792 1928629. For more details visit www.WigstonBrassBand.com

    Hi all...

    A quick update...the above vacancy was filled soon after I posted this ad, but due to unexpected work commitments we have found ourselves needing a full-time BBb bass player again. So do you fancy it?

    We also have an impending vacancy on our Solo Cornet bench (due to university commitments).

    So if you're a competent Cornet or BBb bass player, looking for a hard working, friendly band, contact me via PM or on 0792 1928629 or email ianhayto7073@hotmail.com or you can email the band direct: wigstonbrassband@hotmail.com.

    Thanks.

So if you're looking for a friendly, committed and ethusiastic band with a busy schedule of concerts and contests for the rest of the year and on into 2006, please get in touch....:D

    Thanks.

    Solo cornet required.

    Wigston Band require a tutti cornet to complete our line up. We are a hard working, friendly and sociable band with an excellent atmosphere both inside and outside of the bandroom. After gaining some experienced new signings in January the band continue to move forward with a strong area result, and have earned clear promotion into the Midlands first section for 2007. For the remainder of this year we have a full and varied programme of concerts and contests. Everything is in place - we just need one more cornet to finish the job!

    We are located on the South side of Leicester, close to M1 junc. 21 / A511 (old A50) / A6.

    Interested? You can contact us via our website (www.WigstonBrassBand.com) or give our secretary, Alison a call on 0116 2877187. You could also PM me for further information. We would be pleased to hear from you.

    Solo Horn required!

    Note to self: I really ought to keep updating this....

    Anyway, the above vacancies have been filled, but we're looking for an experienced and dedicated solo horn. As I have said in previous posts we are a friendly bunch who enjoy the social side of banding as much as we do by playing to a good standard and we have an excellent MD in the shape of Garry Sleath. Next year we will be competing in the first section nationally.

    Our bandroom is located in South Wigston, a couple of miles from M1 junction 21 / M69 Junction 1 and close to the A6 and A511 (old A50). South Wigston also has it's own train station with regular services from the Leicester to Birmingham line, and our bandroom is about 10 minutes walk from the station.

    So give us a call if you want to play in a band who takes as much pride in their concert performances as their contest successes. If you want to have a chat about us PM me here, or email ianh@themouthpiece.com or call me on 0792 1928629, or you could call our secretary, Alison on 0116 2877187. Alternatively, just come down to the bandroom to see what we're about! We would be pleased to hear from you.
