    Oldham (Lees) Band.

    Won a variety of contests throughout the country including 2nd at the Nationals. A Fourth Section band in the top 200 in the world is outstanding. A band truly on the up.

    I'd like to nominate a Gloucestershire Band for band of the year - the Lydbrook band - for the following reasons:

    2nd at the Wof E area which meant qualification to the Championship and a place at the Nationals

    a super trip to latvia and Lithuania which was followed by the tragic death of their young solo horn player on their return. The way the band coped with the loss of Tref and have looked after his partner Jo is remarkable and shows their stength of character.

    A very impressive 5th place at the National finals in memory of their solo horn player Tref -their first contest out after his untimely death. What a tough weekend that must have been for Jo and the band.

    Their unwavering support for the Lydbrook Training Band - many senior band members attend training band regularly to encourage the youngsters and Robert Morgan teaches the very new starters before conducting the training band rehearsal every week. The training band came 2nd at the Crosskeys Contest in Class 1 and today won the March and came 2nd in section D at the GBBA.

    Winners of the Gloucestershire Brass Band Association Contest

    Thanks

    I nominate Brass Band Willebroek, for their European title, and the prolongation of their Belgian title
    Because of them, brass bands are starting to get more recognition in the mainstream Belgian media, and their performances are a big insiration to all other Belgian bands to continuously improve their level.

    I nominate Wingates Band for some of their innovations this year;
    1) recording a CD of music by Michael Nyman.
    2) releasing a single and attempting to be the Christmas No.1.

    I nominate the Long Eaton SIlver Prize Band.

    A remarkable year, in which the band had to deal with the loss of a beloved player, but bounced back to do remarkable things at Regional and National level, and record a CD. All that in their centenary year, too.

    Rock on, Satchmo Shaz et al!

    I'd like to nominate "Audley Brass Band" - we may not have had conventional success in terms of results, but we have survived a very difficult year which has seen a change in musical director, and have had to cope without a bandroom for the last six months and all the hassle with building control and local planning services.

    However, we have had a committed group of players who have stuck with us through thick and thin, and are ready to face 2007 and all the trials and tribulations (and hopefully results) that it will bring.
