Well it looks good for us going. Though we may end up with the smallest band! (we're short about 10 player at the moment) so if anyone in the London area fancies going let me know (send me a pm and I'll let you know the details).

Sadly my band is going so wont be able to play with you guys. But it should be a good day.

I think we're going anyway so can't help out, but I hope a few tMP'ers will make themselves known. There are at least 3 of us in the band...yorkie19, impycornet and myself. I'm difficult to miss....being about a foot taller than everyone else on the back row. It's always a good day out, so we'll look forward to sharing a beer or two with the tMP crowd.

well i am definately going to be up for a few drinks! It should be a good day...

I know that myself, Raspberry, Timbloke, Pythagorus and probably GeordieColin will be going along with us and we have had some interest from other tMP members so maybe it might turn out to be a half tMP.com Band!

SCRATCH BAND DETAILS:

We will be rehearsing Thursday 12th June (the day before Marches). The coach leaves at 3pm Friday 13th. Uniform is Black Trousers and Black Jacket with your own Band tie. A can of beer needed for the raffle on the coach and lots of enthusiasm for a great day.

We will still welcome other players!

Some accomodation can be found with Band members.

If you are interested and haven't yet contacted me then either PM me or email xrayx19@hotmail.com.

Hey Michelle welcome aboard!

Don't worry if I haven't phoned you yet....I am just collecting numbers and then will be phoning around everyone to confirm etc. I will be in touch ASAP (hopefully by next week)

It's early days yet and I don't fore-see us having probs filling the places.

We are looking for a Tenor Trom, Solo Euph, Sop and a BBb Bass currently.

Anyone else interested contact me.

Any suggestions?

Di B
21.04.2003, 18:42
Not sure if Matlock are going along but if not I'll come along on euph! :lol:

To be honest, half the band went down last year to help a local band and although it has been talked about I don't think anything has been done as yet.

Will not know until Sunday now though but if you want to send me a contact number I'll let you know?

Also if Matlock aren't going, then some of their players may also be interested in tagging along?

Di B
21.04.2003, 18:44

Hi Di, you are still welcome to come along on euph....the more the merrier...if we have a more than a full band (which it is looking that way!) at least we will be able to get a rest :shock: )

Any of the Matlock players are welcome to come along.........definately ask Jeff coz we need a percussionist!!

What marches are we playing? I need to know so I can practise
It looks from the prevous posts as if one of them is Ravenswood but I presume there will be a different one for the road march

If anyone needs a place to sleep in Sheffield I live not too far from Dronfield and have 3 spare double bedrooms with lots of beds in them.
Also got a music practice room with a pool table

Get in touch and let me know if you do - then I can get lots of beer in

geordiecolin
29.04.2003, 10:23
I live in Sheffield and i'm tempted by that offer!! A pool table and a music room...............

Beats my shoddy student house. The bathroom flooded yesterday and all the water went through the ceiling. The living room still isn't dry. :cry: :cry: :cry:

I agree with tmp.com as the bands name. What about lapel badges a la the whitehaven thread??

Some slight changes of plans for the rehearsal. We are now planning to rehearse 6-8 on Sunday 8th June at Dronfields Bandroom (Coal Aston, Derbyshire). I will be contacting you all invidually but thought it would be a good idea to post to latest update here as well. This is due to a good proportion of the scratch now having to do a gig with their own band on the Thursday night!

We will be playing Army of the Nile and Ravenswood.

If anyone thinks it might be easier for them to be picked up enroute and could suggest a viable pick-up point then get back to me and I will see what the bus company is willing to do.

Also anyone wanting overnight accomodation PM me and I will get that sorted ASAP.
