    Do You Need To Be Grade 6 Or Above To Play In A Top Brass Band?

    Only got up to my grade 5, but I play well beyond that level; I have never been asked what grade I have and have played in several champ/top bands; tbh some players that I have heard who have the qualifications, can't play to an acceptable level so can't see it really matters; it's not what you...

    Paddy's Cheltenham - 2011 (1st Section)

    Why have the odds changed so much, is it because we all know now what piece we're playing? Yorks Imps haven't beaten Hammonds recently, I really don't understand why Hammonds have slipped so far down the odds, everyone is tipping them to win! xxx

    Sold/Expired Instrument Repairer Needed

    Had a really bad experience with Octave Above, well two in fact, but have learned my lesson. Anyone who is in any doubt of their abilities is welcome to look at the "lacquering" they did to my baritone that now needs to be acid stripped, and that's a clue as to how good it is!! NOT

    Sold/Expired Instrument Repairer Needed

    I need an instrument repairer in West Yorkshire who can shorten the main tuning slide on my three valved sovereign baritone. It's a newish instrument but is very flat, it has become an issue when I am playing in bands in all registers of the instrument and needs sorting asap. I need the...

    Wedding walking out music

    My sister came into her wedding to Prince of Denmark's March and left to Handel's Music from Royal Fireworks. Sounded absolutely briliant! My banding friend came into Knight Templar and left to the Finale from Year of the Dragon; bit of an eccentric choice but sounded great!

    Paddy's Yorkshire Area - 2011

    Was determined not to get involved in this debate, but feel I need to comment. Nuke is not bitter, the adjudicators said on stage there were two outstanding performances, worthy of championship section bands, they made no comment on the bands that finished behind them; except to say it was hard...

    Paddy's Yorkshire Area - 2011

    Happened in 2005, it could happen again and with Imps needing to win to gain promotion, it will certainly be an exciting final.
