Steve Sykes, in a very excited mood, spoke to us at tMP as we headed into the Winter Gardens this morning. Steve suggested that this contest was likely to be one of the toughest in the banding calendar this year. He felt that Harmony music is a challenging choice for Senior Cup bands and would test any band present in any of the sections today. Steve also felt that the overall standard of the bands that have qualified for each section today was superb – with any one of them being able to compete in any section.

A tough job for the adjudicators indeed Steve eh! I wonder if Steve is going to be in such a jovial mood after his long wait to the elusive position of last band on. Good Luck Albourne from all of us at tMP.
