17 years yesterday, and counting...
Bocito ergo sum...
I've only been with BT 2 years. The longest i've been with a band was 11 years - with my home town band, Royal Buckley.
All my playing life... about 9-10 years. Wouldn't swap em for the world.. great bunch of people!
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'm a one band man me! Been with Deiniolen since I was 10 which makes it 21 years!
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).
Kirsty Kerr | Drogheda Brass Band - On the bench until mini flugelperson arrives, then we'll see what I'm up to playing!
I'm one of the co-founders of Chicago Brass Band. Our first rehearsal was in September, 2002.

Only recently moved bands, been in Newmarket for about 3 weeks now? I was in my previous band for about 6 years though, that is where my playing career started! Moved up the cornet ranks thoughout the years, eventially making it to assistant principle. Now enjoying rep cornet, I love it!
Solo Trombone - Littleport
Ive been with my band about 5 yrs - started on 3rd cornet and worked my way up. Before that I played for Trinity Girls for about 10 months in '98/'99 and Pemberton Youth Band for about 12 years - we have an ongoing joke that the reason there are still people in the band over the age of 18 is coz we can't leave til we're good enough!
Scary, I didn't know I was so old!! I'm not turning 20 next year Im gonna turn twenteen.
If you think it's scary for you love, think how much scarier it is for meOriginally Posted by Carina Halliwell
I can remember you all, and those before you, from when you were little sprogs. William was 18 last week! I never thought he'd live that long. James is still remembering to breathe in and out and he's made it to 20
Colin Hesketh has more grey hair than I do and I taught him when he was in the 6th form!
Nurse! Nurse! Get me the padded jacket with the arms tied across the front. Pleeeease!!!
Must make me an oldie. I started in 1970 as a middle aged learner and am still learning with same Band.
George, back on double B
