    Congratulations to Grimethorpe of course...
    But special congratulations to Bert for getting the best instrumentalist prize! I've been on stage with him a couple of times, and he's just amazing!

    Talking Just got home!!

    Having just returned home, I have to say.. I thoroughly enjoyed todays competition.. The results were spot on.. and the choice of testpiece was great.. I'l be whistling Judges for weeks! Nice to have a piece thats easy enough on the ear to keep the audience there till the end! The concert was very entertaining too.. some great arrangements from the various members of the bands.. esp. Pete Dentons Tribute to the boss, and the Frog Horn players compositions and arrangements, which were delightfully clever!

    Well done to all concerned.. well run comp, well played bands and well enjoyed!!

    Judges

    Well having spoken to a number of listeners and players, the general consensus seems to be it was a great days banding that was good on the ear and a fair result. Despite the protestations of some wanna be big name composers. One in particular who seems to have become relatively famous by moaning about much loved works instead of increasing his dubious output. Well it would seem an arranger from a bye gone era could teach him a trick or two!!! An arranger who i should imagine quietly got on with his work being careful not to look daft belittling great names from the past, simply letting his legacy of music do the talking. Fantastic to see things eventually coming to fruition at Grimethorpe, they have been the best sounding and most entertaining band around for a number of years with a bass section that blows the rest away. Hopefully with a great conductor now starting to do wonderful things, the worrying and inexplicable strangle hold on banding can now be relaxed. Well done to all concerned, a great and much needed result.

    Disappointed with the piece and the contest in general. I thought Grimethorpe and Bayv should have been the top two. Where was the "test" in the test piece , it was easy when you compare it to what they had to play at the regionals. Having said that though , no-one one nailed it. Soprano's in general didn't have a good day. Black Dyke "soprano" and end man was awesome. I don't know what was up with Roberts, but he must have lost his nerves or something , because he played the bits he did play well , but was sat there doing very little while RM rattled it all out in the little ditty tuned virtually everyone crabbed a couple at least in. The percussion I think we would have all had a go. It was written 40 years ago , how can it be used as a test piece when banding has moved on so much!. Should have gone to the Rink tonight instead for some proper music. More music like Journey to the centre of the earth and Vienna Nights please!

    Have to agree one of the most ''flattest'' days contesting for a while, fair enough result but the day has lacked much of the usual excitement for me. Music from 40 years ago I guess the main reason. Yes sure took a few scalps but bands like those on show today deserved a better challenge after all we are trying to find the National Champion.

    Still enjoyed some of the performances from some unusual suspects, Staines and Cambourne in particualar.
    Not quite sure how Rothwell managed to come so low down, we sat up the top for them and the co op and Rothwell sounded very clean from up there.
