    Hiya all I'm after a copy of Firestorm (Bulla????) and Beatrice and Benedict. Anyone know if any band has recorded these and if the cd's are readily available. I vainly looked on itunes for the tracks but as I might have guessed not a sniff!!! I only really wanted these tracks because generally...

    A Short Guide to Preparing to Record a Brass Band CD

    Better late than never I suppose!!!!...... I must add to the comments by Roger and Big Twigge on the recording by KMJ. It was a very enjoyable weekend (despite me aching in places I never knew I had). If anyone is in the process of deciding to make a cd and trying to decide who to record it...

    That Was The Week That Was . . .

    OK, well where shall I start I have been fortunate (?) enough over the years to play in bands with some serious pranksters. For example a certain cornet player for a certain band many years ago thought it would be fun for the band to go for a jog around the running at track at a competition in...

    Official tMP Midlands Regional 2007 Thread

    Thanks to all for the comments about our win yesterday. I knew when we came off stage we'd played well but I didn't think we'd played quite THAT well!! Amazing feeling after being away from the contest arena for a little while to come back and win straight away. To make it that little bit...

    More late train excuses

    We'd never stop trains for a badger on the line, no matter how protected/rare/smouldering she/it was!! Surely though, if it was smouldering it's more likely to be well done than rare?? oh well...... Sheep on the line are a hazard and usually requires trains to be stopped and/or cautioned Cows...
