Hi Everyone

I would just like to say to everyone here on theMouthPiece.com that I send you all my very best wishes and the very best of luck in the upcoming Regional qualifiers. We would all love to win, but as long as we all do our best, 'play our brains out' and enjoy the experience is what really matters. :D

Good luck to every band competing, and to you all as individuals... thanks also to you all for your on-going support here at theMouthPiece... I couldn't do it without you all :tup

long live theMouthPiece.com ... :D

Good luck to all that are playing/supporting over the next few weekends. Go on that stage and play you best. It is easy to say that it is 'the taking part that counts'. I wouldn't say that that statement is true or untrue! Doing well is important! Alot of hard work goes into contesting but at the end of the day you could go on that stage and play your socks off and you still may get a 'bad' placement. Sometimes I think contest results need to be taken with a pinch of salt. They are much more important things in banding such as 'band community spirit'. There is alot of truth in 'a band that plays well together socially will play well together musically!'. We cannot all go and win at contests every time (there will always be winners and losers!) but we can all make the effort to get along with our collegues which should in-turn (in theory) help performances at contests. Therefore this is another brilliant excuse for post-contest bonding sessions in the bar!

Good luck everybody!

May your parts for Prague be error-free (fat chance!) and all your notes in the right place at the right time! Let's hope the adjudicators smile on us all!!!

And failing that - may you all drink plentifully and not be hungover!

You wanna blow my what?

Celestial Prospect.....hmmm. It's easy enough if you think about what you're doing......and just concentrate. I only saw the 1st horn part for the first time today.....I've been playing solo horn, and our solo horn decided to come to rehearsal today.

I'm not sure if I want it to continue or not. Ours isn't going brilliantly, so it could be really cool, but if you've really got it good, the shocking results could be a bit of a bummer :(:(:D:D

I think someone worked out the other day a scenario that if they get dodgy results in the next 2 or 3 years, and certain other bands get good results, they will be demoted to 1st section :D mwhahahah that would be a laff!
