    Just a bit of fun. How many results do you get if you put you band's name in quotation marks, into Google? I got 749 for Cranbrook Town Band. I do this from time to time to see what people might be saying about us and where concerts are listed. It is surprising what you find sometimes, like photos of the band and entries on blogs. Also as our latest recruits have found the band through the internet, it's good to get your name out there.

    1760 for Killamarsh Silver Band, cool! Not bad for a non contesting band:)

    2090 for the "brass band of columbus"

    I guess we are better known by our initials "BBC" because if you type that in you get 137,000,000 hits ;-)

    For Creswell brass band we get 12,600, not a bad count I think for a forth section local band, but we do have an excellent history!!!!!!!

    Oh dear - last so far with only 525 for Perthshire Brass (the Band of class)...but with our own website now "live" this figure will hopefully increase!

    Sorry to burst your bubble young Master Jr but I think "Grimethorpe Colliery Band" will probably win this one with 34,900

    Try "YBS Band" ;)

    "YBS" brings up 512,000 but "YBS Band" only bings up 3,520

    You'd think we'd have better things to do on Christmas Eve!

    "Wantage Silver Band" gets 1,380.

    What about 51,200 for "Black Dyke Mills Band"
  17. Roger Thorne

    Roger Thorne Active Member

    But they're no longer Black Dyke Mills. A search for "Black Dyke Band" will yield 21,800.

    So I reckon Grimethorpe are still in the lead.

    7,840 for Hadleigh Temple Band, but very misleading as later entries tend only to pick up on one of the words, and may be completely irrelevant. Mind, there are 6,040 with the words bracketed together, which can't be bad ;)

    denton brass gets 882 not bad for a band that has only recently started contesting again

    Just slightly off topic, but hey, it's christmas.

    Santa Claus comes up with 13200000, Snowman with 14600000, and presents with 159000000
