My top 5 was the same as yours yorkshire bloke! I defo had Polysteel up there, but maybe I lost something because I was sat high up in the grand tier? I heard 16 bands and my only suprise was Whitburn! they started off really well but it seemed to go downhill after that. Dyke were awesome...
I know loads of people that didn't like the final episode!! I thought it was good!! save the cheerleader! save the world! job done lol! it's left it open for the next series which apparently starts in the states in September!!!
Thanks for all the feedback! I haven't played properly for 2 years, and in that time I've moved into a block of 4 flats! Normally when I finish work, there is no one else in so practicing won't be a problem during that time, but on the odd occasion when they are in I'll need something to quieten...
Yamaha don't do a silent brass system for Baritone, and the next best thing apparently is a practice mute! can someone tell me the difference in reduction of sound between a practice mute and a normal straight mute!
Here are my predictions for the Senior Cup
STAFFORDSHIRE, S. BASTABLE
WINGATES, P. McCANN
NEWTONGRANGE, A. RAMSEY
BTM, T. WYSS
My top 4 for the Trophy
BHK (UK) HORDEN, Major P. PARKES
ALLIANCE BRASS, J. CLARK
CAMBOURNE, CAPTAIN. P. CURTIS
TONGWYNLAIS TEMPERANCE SILVER, B. JAMES
I think this is one of the reasons why I have given up banding after 30 years!!! it's run by dinosaurs!!!! and I hate it!!! hello people!!! it's 2005! or hadn't you realised! obviously not!
