    Rock on, Satchmo Shaz et al!
    I was going to second this but Rich beat me to it. So if its possible to "third" a nomination - Long Eaton are in my book band of the year without a doubt. Not only are they the nicest bunch of people - they work relentlessly hard, they don't expect anything in return and it has been a difficult year by any stretch! Coping with a huge loss, the family band battled on - none of the Ramplin family missing rehearsals, even through their most difficult of times - the whole band pulls together as one. And it all pays off - Area Champions, National Champions...Shaz you're a legend! What a way to celebrate 100 years of banding. Keep it up LE - you're top class. Both Senior and Training band thrive - lets hope you go from strength to strength - and you've got the right lady in charge!!

    I'd like to repeate that it is not necessary to second or "third" any nominations. We'd just like to have as much nominations as possible for all categories.

    To help strengthen the BBCs CV for band of the year, I’d like to add the following information in addition to their 2006 North American Brass Band Championship already listed above.

    First, the band has regularly chosen by the listeners as a favourite on the ALL BRASS BANDS Internet radio since rankings were released July 2006.

    (July 2006 - #1 Sing, Sing, Sing; August 2006 - #5 Sing, Sing, Sing; September 2006 - #11 Sing, Sing, Sing; October 2006 - #3 Sing, Sing, Sing; November 2006 - #3 Prospect & #10 American Civil War Fantasy.)

    Also the band has accepted several invitations to perform at prestigous local events, including the Ohio Music Education Association Annual Conference, the Inaugural Ohio Brass Arts Festival, and the Great American Brass Band Festival.


    Additionally, they are in the midst of what should turn out to be a fantastic baritone CD.

    What a great achievement.
    Never regret. If it's good it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's experience.

    Leisa, there's nothing in the rules to say you're restricted to only one nomination, so nominate away! But when it comes round to voting in the polls, you'll have to decide which one you're going to vote for!

    Cool, ok

    firstly (in no particular order) id like to nominate 1. Brighouse and Rastrick! because of their performance at brass in concert and winning cos hopefully thats the first of many!!

    second 2. YBS Cos i reckon they have done brill considering they have lost sposership they still sound ace and have continued to keep a full band throughout their contest performances.

    3rd-ley i would like to nominate my band United Yorkshire Co-op cos they have had a rough couple of years regarding contest results and seem to be on the up at the moment having got a few brilliant results within a couple of months !!

    oh oh just remembered i have a frth nomination!!

    i would als like to nominte 4th. Flixton brass band....because over thge past 5 yeasr or s i think they have done a brilliant job of rebuliding the band and in the past year they have had some acw contest results gotten purely on the basis of hard work. having seen some of tier rehearsals they are possibly the most hardworking band i know of and they truely deserve the results they have gottne!!

    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.
    They were fabulous when they won the World Brass Band Competition at Kerkrade in 2005.

    About their placement in Kerkrade, I stand corrected.

    (Oh, wait a minute--that's the other thread--about basses standing for solos...)

    I would like to nominate Brisbane Excelsior.

    In 2006 they visted the UK to take part in the Masters where they achieved a top 10 placing.

    Also during the visit they played concerts around the UK culminating with joint concert with Leyland Band.

    The tour was made possible by a massive fund raising effort on behalf of the band. Whilst all the fund raising was going on they still managed to keep their fantatstic playing going by retaining the Australian National Championships.

    On top of all that they are a terrific bunch of people too! (even if they are stuffing us at cricket!)
