    Death of a true Gem

    It's the same in their Sports Mixtures too. The answer, is to bin all the fake black ones, and replace them with LION Licquorice Tablets. (Lion were the original makers of Midget Gems + Sports Mixtures).

    Bands in the national press again!

    Potentially because the outcome of this case has possible effects for the majority of people involved not only in Brass Banding, but also many other leisure activities. I haven't seen anything further in the press regarding the outcome of the hearing in early June (possible because the hearing...

    The worst comment made in an adjudication

    One well known ex euphonium palying Yorkshire man, described the trombones in Labour & Love as being " hit round the head with a cricket bat". Did he perhaps mean, we were a little loud?

    Could you stay with your band without contests?

In a concert, the audience are there because they...

    Contests to separate the men from the boys!

    True, but like all weaknesses in our technique, they are the areas we should concentrate on. I, like most players have some strong areas of technique, many that are okay, and some that are a weakness.
