    The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

    I joined the band about 7 or 8 years ago, I think. James Parkinson was in Y8, (I think) and he's 20 now (I never thought he'd make it to adulthood )

    I was in Eagley from age 13(?) to about 30, when I moved to Wigan. Like a bad infection, once you've got me I'm hard to get rid of

    Started in the National Capital Band in 1976, at age 13. Took a few years leave of absence in the early 90s, but even without counting that time I'll be starting my 21st season next week.

    Started in the Prince George's Corps Band in 1974, and have been in continuously since (bandmaster since February 1999).

    I've only moved band when I've moved away - first band was about 6 years then I moved a few hundred miles away and joined another one for 11 years or so then I moved another couple of hundred miles and joined another one... where I am very happy (especially now I'm on flugel there as I hadn't really played anything else before except to help out bands at a gig).
