Have you looked on IBEW? If there isn't one listed, then probably not.

Closest we have is 2295.3 miles away, in Uganda.

You could cut that down a lot by catching a ferry across the Red Sea...

Hang on, Google driving distances thingy has made the earth a bit bigger, it's 11,000 miles and 10 days driving now. Bratislava is quicker to get to by car...

Super Star Brass Band 2295.3 miles, 11,063 miles driving = 10 days 15 hours
Brass Sounds Kaunas 2593.7 miles, 4,011 miles driving = 3 days 8 hours
Brass Band Bratislava 2599.6 miles, 3,451 miles driving = 2 days 18 hours

Ask Kapitol and they will say it is equal driving distance from Scotland to Lands End!

Probably the best thing to do would be to drop Darrol Barry a line; as I recall he is not far away from Dubai, in Oman.

I want to play in Dubai too, will be there by the end of June... I know of one more player so that makes 3 ... 25 more to find then.
Would be happy to help set one up although not on my own there must be enough Brits abroad who can/used to play!

Did you manage to find a band? Me (cornet/horn) and my wife (horn/bari/euph) or about an hour outside Dubai, in Al Ain - right on the Oman border.

We are in Oman, give us a shout if you are down in Muscat. We have a great brass ensemble.
