Yes Aldbourne are going!
Verwood Concert Brass will be there!
Hi Paddy, a couple of contests in November, they are probably already on your Radar!

Think Bath Spa got 4th but wouldn't put money on it :)
Sandhurst 2nd, Otterbourne 3rd
Woodfalls 1st, Ocean Brass 9th
I use a 25 year old Sovereign BBb for the bandroom and concerts and for home practice a few weeks leading upto contests, the rest of the time for home use and carroling etc I bought myself a John...
I also agree with Di's comments, Verwood Concert Brass took the descision when we reached the second section to secure our future by offering some of our players an alternative who didn't want to...
I bought myself a JP Baby Bb bass for home use that lives next to the bed, coupled with a practice mute for extra back pressure to emulate the Sovereign I normally use. I still use the Arban for...
Euphsrock......Did you really see a band with 2 soprano players or 2 soprano cornets as there is a big difference? I am intrigued.......
Hey well done to Sandhurst, our story at Verwood Concert Brass is very similar coming from the 4th section to the 1st section this year. We also went through a change in MD's with the success...
I bought a JP baby Bb bass 6 months ago for home practice, to save dragging the Sovereign around and to be honest it is really good. I used it for all of the Christmas carolling gigs and a couple of...
Fair play Paddy, we did have a "bad day at the office". Still takes the pressure off for the regionals as nobody will expect too much! Except ourselves that is!
Thanks Paddy that's good to know!
Verwood just came second at Leamington Spa beating Strata (3rd) currently 140 in the World Rankings, does that improve our odds?
Hi Wendy, I have a selection of Flugel mouthpieces you can try, I will bring them on Wednesday and give to the MD for you. Don't buy anything until you have tried a few. You did have a huge sound...
All this calender lark is enough for me to go on a diet and get back to the gym just in case you start clicking the camera at rehearsal. I wondered why the bandroom has been so hot lately, you are...
We have 3 Sousaphones of which I play 1 in our street band called "Gugge 2000" www.gugge2000.co.uk I also play BBb bass in Verwood Concert Brass and have used it at a concert playing Forty Fathoms...
The car will have to go then! Somethings are just more important........
It wouldn't feel so bad having a lesson with Mr. Sykes on a decent instrument. Can you imagine the embarrassment of playing and the tuning slide falling out!
Yes it would be ok, sadly the pillow would be put into retirement until the next shortie comes along!
Hi Mesmerist, as I am the person that is vertically challenged that sits on a pillow I can say that this is exactly the same model that we borrowed from Poole for the contest except this one is in...
Congrats to Five Rivers as well for getting out of the hardest section !!
Is there anywhere on the net where you can see the league tables with all of the bands points on, it's ok for the...
Thanks Will, best of luck in the 3rd Section with Fulham.
Best of luck to Norfolk Wherry, good to have bumped into you again Michelle, just remember it will always be your fault I ended up on...
