    death or glory

    I've sent it. Let me know if you don't get it. You left the @ sign out of your email address. I think I inserted it in the right place :)

    death or glory

    I think I scanned all the parts to print new copies before last years Miner's Gala. I can check for you when I get home. No doubt somebody will have sorted you out by then anyway

    Murton Colliery Band to fold

    Very sad to hear about the sad demise of yet another northeast band. Is it not worth trying to keep going in some form? We were in a very similar situation at Felling a couple of years ago. We called a meeting to decide the future of the band. Five of us turned up. To make matters worse, we lost...

    standard tenor horn mouthpiece?

    I thought it was the other way round. Largest cup and narrowest rim on the 1, smallest cup and widest rim on the 5. Alliance do a range of mouthpieces. I have been using an Alliance Owen Farr 3 which I find produces a much warmer sound than the Denis Wick 3 but I find it quite tiring over...

    standard tenor horn mouthpiece?

    I would have thought the standard would more likely be a 2 or maybe a 3. Don't know many that use a 5

    Felling Band

    It’s no secret that in the past year or so Felling Band have fallen on hard times. So much so that we find ourselves in a position where we are down to eight or nine regular players. It would be all too easy in this situation to throw in the towel and call it quits. However, those of us that are...

    NoE Areas Moved to Durham

    I would have thought an extra 20 minutes on the motorway is a small price to pay to play on a proper stage with a good acoustic

    NoE Areas Moved to Durham

    It's a great move! It's a shame that after 25 years of playing in a sports hall, now that I'm no longer playing, they've moved it to a proper venue more suited to the purpose. No need to worry about your post-contest libation Blue Juice. You'll be spoilt for choice. The only issue I can see will...

    New band in E Anglia needed

    Hi Marcus. How are you doing? Why not give my friends at Cawston a try? They're a decent band and a friendly bunch!

    brighouse Xmas record....only listen if your sitting down.

    I saw this when it was posted on Facebook a few weeks back. I can't even bring myself to follow the link to sit through it again. I can't believe they've released it!

    Horn Solo suggestions (Urgent)

    Swiss Melodies is a good old Sally Army one. I think it was Eric Ball. Some nice melodies combined with some trickier sections but not too difficult (from what I remember)

    Bells Palsy

    I was put on steroids by my GP but it took longer than 24 hours for any of the pharmacies to order them in and I'd already been having symptoms for a few days by then. I have been trying to whistle as that was one of the first things I noticed I couldn't do and it's coming along nicely. I...

    Wilfred Heaton's Praise - as a contest march?

    The DC al Fine might not have been the only criteria that was missing. Just the one that sticks in my mind. Maybe that it's written in 4/4 or doesn't have a bass solo. I just remember being disappointed not being allowed to play it and having to do Ravenswood yet again (even though it does have...
