Oldham Brass '97 is based in the small village of Lees, Oldham and we are graded 2nd Section.

We are currently going through a rebuilding process, and are trying to build a friendly concert band, with the view to start contesting again sometime in the future.

We have vancancies in the following area's:

Front and Back Row Cornets


We currently rehearse on a Wednesday night 8-10pm and Sunday 6-8pm above the Royal British Legion Club, Princess St, Lees, Oldham. We welcome all players of all abilities, so why not come down and give it a try!

Anyone who is interested in coming along to a rehearsal can contact Andy Robinson at andyrob75@aol.com who can provide any additional details or directions!

Come join the revolution - you know it makes sense!

Is Ewan Campbell still conducting Oldham 97?

No - Ewan is taking Flixton at the moment, Dave Ashworth is currently helping us out.

I may be wrong but looking at the location, has it turned into the very succesful Oldham (Lees) Band?

Hi Guinny.

Thanks for the interest. As has already been posted, we reformed back in late 2004 and have had a reasonable amount of success since then. However we are always on the look out for new talent (what do you play?) so if you fancy coming down for a blow then PM me and I'll fill you in on the where and when. Sorry we havent got back to you earlier, we only got back from Harrogate yesterday afternoon and things have been a bit chaotic to say the least :wink: .

Thanks again

Bass Trom
