    Andy - I sent you a PM in response to your Facebook post during the day yesterday. Kidlington Concert Brass (champ section near Oxford) suddenly find ourselves in need of one. If interested, contact...

    Sorry - I'd never heard of it - if I had, it would be on the map!

    But if you tell me what it was called, and where it was based, I'll pin it up as an extinct band. Even better if you know what...

    If the cap fits!

    The drinking thing is interesting - if an organisation makes a big enough fuss about something, then some of its members will feel driven to it - it's my observation that some of the biggest drinkers...

    "Portraying the message" is an interesting one. There is what the musicians are putting out, and then there is what the devout are receiving from it. We don't demand that actors in TV shows and films...

    It is commonly the case that some members of choirs that perform for church services (regular C of E or Catholic) are less than devout. Indeed, as someone with zero religiosity, I've been paid to...

    It's a funny thing, but I have observed over the years that posting about posting hardly ever helps anything, and often quickly leads to discord in surprising places (prime example above). Few people...

    These are all reasonable aspirations, and ones that a considerate band management will do its best to work with. But a band is made up of 25 players, and such reasonable desires cannot always be...

    You seem to have a ready supply of excellent questions up your sleeve... Another good one.

    Okay, I stand corrected - the rule isn't 100% strict. Did Tylorstown perhaps get a late invite in 2012? By "first invite", I meant the first round of invites. If there are gaps, opportunities open up...

    Part of what made the G bass trombone replaceable by the modern Bb/F was a simultaneous increase in bore size - the notes that are on the valve on the Bb/F instrument but on the straight slide on the...
