    I was the Bb bass player on Davids first CD of whistling, it seemed to go down very well. I know there have been others since. You can get them from places like Dobcross Bandclub. Simon

    Brass In Concert - Gateshead

    The good thing about Leighs arrangement is that it is really close to the original but still manages to involve all sections of the band being highlighted at some point. He has done many great arrangements & compositions, some of you may already have played Erin Shore for example. When i got on...

    I always thought if someone could get to grips and arrange some of Pink Floyds material it would be good. Anyone fancy a go? Si

    Tips for pedalling?

    If you practice my method for just coming in on a specified note you will find in time that its possible to get any note straight from picking your bass up & only a little warm up. I play most pedals in the normal way as explained by Andy, but lets say for example: pedal bottom A at pp at the...

    Tips for pedalling?

    There actually is a method you can try, instead of playing down into your mouth piece, put ur top lip on the top rim of your mouthpiece and let your bottom lip slightly underneath ur top lip produce the note. If you practice this method you will in time be able to get lower & lower & still be...

    English National Championship Predictions

    I totally disagree with everyone saying the fact that bands could borrow just 2 players undermines the contest! Absolute Nonsense! At the end of the day, they were the rules. End of. Do you all really think 2 players would make such a difference? Ive been contest secretary for 4-5 years & its...

    Don Lusher

    As everyone has said, he was a gentleman & inspirational to talk to. He came to a couple of our concerts at Regents Hall the night before the Nationals & most recently was at Cambridge when we did the Gala concert for the Masters. He'd always pop around the dressing room & chat with us & say how...

    English National Championship Predictions

    I dont know about other bands, but most of our band rarely go in for the results anyway. We just wait for a call or text from in the hall. But im sure more players would have if the England match wasnt on.

    English National Championship Predictions

    Glad you liked our performance Brian. It was an excellent day as far as Brighouse was concerned. We found the hall not as dead as other bands were telling us as they came off stage, we've certainly played in venues with worse acoustics for the players. The placing of the venue was ideal, nice...

    tMP Piece of the Week #2: Dances and Alleluias, Philip Sparke

    Agreed, this piece shows the other composers that you dont have to be less musical when being a test for the bands. This is a winning piece with bands & audiences which must be good for "real band people" aswell as none reguler band listeners. Bravo!

    Brighouse March and Hymn Contest

    This contest gets better & better. It was scorching to play in but great for the audiences & socialising banders with a cold pint! Ideal! Well done to the prize winners, including Marsden with their one & only grey trousered bass player! lol. Si
