    Petrol prices mean giving up band ?

    Has anybody thought about learning how to drive more economically? The AA will tell you that most drivers can save between 10 and 15 percent on their fuel costs. I am a driver trainer and I can help you to save, in most cases, over 10% on your fuel costs. You know it makes sense.

    Film Music

    Dare I say that that is not strictly true. If I were a pedantic person ( which I am not), it was your fiance that commissioned Darrol Barry to do the arrangement, because he must have commissioned it before the wedding. I'll ge me coat :D

    [Results] NEMBBA Association Contest

    Can I make a correction to the very first post on this thread with the results please? Crewe Co-op won the prize for the best bass section, not the best bass player as stated.

    [Results] NEMBBA Association Contest

    An excellent days banding today. This contest is always a good run-out for the area test piece. I can't understand why more bands don't make the effort to enter.

    Black Dyke 150th anniversary concert

    The concert was simply fantastic. It opened with Queensbury - what else? We also heard Peter Graham's Journey to the Centre of the Earth. An excellent piece and very well played. James Morrison was simply awe-inspiring. I'm not really sure what purpose the dancers were meant to serve...

    More Options... tMP releases another User style

    These recent changes do nothing, so far as I can see, to add value to the site. They just seem to make it more difficult to navigate your way around. I, for one, will be using the site less often than I have in the past because I just don't have the time to spend trying to find out how the site...

    bitter sarcasm or pragmatic embrace?

    Presumably then Cwmaman don't want amyone who is currently playing for a band anywhere in the world to leave that band and join Cwmaman. Obviously Cwmaman are going to do the decent thing and train a new player who currently knows nothing about banding or music? Sauce for the goose.....

I have to say that the music on the Regionals 2005 CD includes some great pieces (a shame that some of the playing could be better). The Trumpets of the Angels includes some...

    4BarsRest Comments On Third Section

    Did you say 4BR LIVe comments? 4BR report that the third section was due to start at 09:30 and at 3:15 they have still only managed to post "live" comments on the first 12 bands. Surely the section must be finished by now? It's been nearly 6 hours! I also wonder who taught the 4BR people to...
