    Or else the Marx Brothers' film (at the opera?) where the orchestra floats out to see playing Wagner for all they're worth ;)

    I am driving down from Barnsley if that is any good for anybody.

    Be warned though, terrified of flying so you will be required to calm my nerves on the journey down!!!

    Neil has my mobile no if anyone needs a lift.

    Good news, I have my website up and available. While it is a work in progress, it will give you the info you need on the Brantford Concert. The address is If anyone from tMP comes to Brantford, look me up, I'll be the guy pacing wondering if I'm gonna have enough people to pay the bills;) .

    So we were running late as we had an unanticipated stop we had to make. It started Thunderstorming, which slowed us down and we weren't sure if today's concert was still going to be on.

    To make a long story short we are in Cleveland (about 2.5 hrs from Buffalo) and still hoping to get up there and visit some of the ambassadors tomorrow. Does anybody have a mobile phone number of any of the band members or know where they are overnighting today (wed 10th). If so, please pm me.

    Thanks for all of you that have offered help. We didn't manage to see them :( However, I have talked to a couple of them via pm and mobile phone and except for the sore heads from about wake up time until noon or so, it sounds like they are having a fantastic trip.

    Glad to hear you made it. Were the toilets in Weedsport, Mass as "user friendly" as the toilets at the pennineway?:D :clap:

    Congrats to all the YAGB for what has been (from what I heard) a very successful ;) tour.

    Especially my mate Simon for his first venture (or is it second) into US territory.

    Wish you could have joined the ABB road trip....

    I did in fact find the loos in Weedsport to be quite nice, including ammenities beyond those listed at

    Congrats to the YABB members for putting on a most enjoyable show last night, and many thanks to the gracious hosts in Weedsport for putting up a couple of strangers from NJ!

    .....can't wait to see pictures. Perhaps some of the guys could post a few in the gallery???

    Hey guys, just got back from thge airport - knackered!! Great to see you again Michelle and i'm sorry Pat and Diana couldn't make it but good fun was had by all :)

    Yes, I have loads of pics from the tour which I will supply to Helen V to put on her website for download. I think that she's going to pick the best pics from everyone and post them on her site???

    Anyways, i'm sure there will be lots of comments from other YABB members later today when everyone gets home so i'm going to have some sleep I guess!

    Hi there... Graeme here, from the Weston Silver Band. Just wanted to say thanks to the YABB for a great concert in Toronto, followed by a fun night out on the town!

    Hope you all recover quickly from the two weeks of excessive drinking and minimal sleep.
