Maybe next time, I'll just delete the thread instead of taking time and effort to trim it so the topic can be discussed?? :p[/quote]
LOL the power..........
Hmmmm an accusation the accused cannot defend himself these days :mad:
More to the point, and I don't things monetary figures should be banded about, you need to look at the overall things that DB...

Hi all, on the eve of the contests (well actually its 02:51 and I just finished work - can't wait to get a proper job).
As Sam (looking to win the 2nd Baritone Solo award at Torquay, this year)...
:cool: I should be careful on my comments, so I will think about what to say first !!! :rolleyes:
You going Dave???????? (too many blooming Dave's in the world)
This is thread is going down a STORM and I haven't even had my say - LOL.
The facts are that the Monster Bass is the main artery of any band. Without its pulse a brass band is nothing. ...
Okay, most stuff written with a BBb Bass solo part is naff. The Ploughboy, Forty Fathoms, TUBA SMARTIES. However at a brisk tempo Tijuana Tuba had some great bounce to it. Give it a shot (if I had...
Tickets will be available on the door.
The programme will include timeless christmas favourites, as well as Eric Ball's Resurgam, and Simon Dobson's new arrangement of Danny Elfman's The Nightmare...
My thoughts go out to the members of BTB with the loss of bandroom, instruments and extensive music library. It is very sad that one of Cornwall's top bands are having to go through all of this.
Blooming 'eck, when you think about it there has been loads of great solos for tubas (and Monster Basses).
I had a favourite from Sunlife's 1977 LP Oliver Cromwell, called Tuba Tapestry.

Band X would also win the 1st Section
Band Y would win...
Okay I know its only days away from the big Kick-off (or some bands may have even started), but does anyone have a spare set of Green Carol Books I can beg, borrow, hire or buy, for the coming Xmas...
Me, I got no opinion on which band from where is playing for what product or when.....
apart from that, blooming lovely sound, I would also say Phil McCann
(now where did I put them meat and...
The pieces are picked for you and we had two weeks to knock them in to standard
Unfortunately, due to some stubborn ideals by the organisers, STORM will not now be at the Wessex contest (an...
New username: ThePainedOne :biggrin:
and whats wrong the the Queens Head Car Park?? (ps have you ever visited the Queensbury Chinese, the quaintly named Min Gin (I hope the foods not minging!!!)...
Ouch... I see where this is going.....
ps I and my colleagues have had many years of toil, practice, hard work. I have been promoted and played through all sections.
Apologies to Ophicliede
Disagree, the initial statement stands, then people take it off thread to steer away from the issue raised
LOL Jessika, no jealousy at all, honest and why should...
??? everyone knows I have two profiles ??? It depends who I sign on with and which friends I wanna pm to.
Erm and your problemo is??????
There doesn't seem to be any sour grapes here, just the honest truth, that for a major event like with the BBC (we are not talking playing the local bandstands here) then if you want a "BIG" name...
