Surely instead of going completely off topic, we should be enjoying the exposure bands are finally regaining on TV? Even though the show is on S4C, many from my home (Cornwall) have heard about this and are following, even some non brass musicians. I find it disheartening that we constantly moan...
I literally couldn't see the problem with the venue myself, had everything you need within the facility. Yes the hall was dry, but surely that gives a fairer representation of a performance than a hall that hides practically all the detail? No complaints here!
I went and had a blow with the mighty "Tartan Brass" at the weekend, needless to say it got blimmin cold at 10pm in a kilt! What a contest though, first time I've been, and one of the most surreal experiences I've ever had. Great laugh!
I believe we aren't competing at Weston this year, but Cheltenham will be my last with the band as off to RWCMD in September. Are you off to Cheltenham? :) Maybe see you up there! And the band have been promoted :) Well done for the performance last weekend, I didn't have you where you finished.
Was wondering if anyone knew whether the Hot Canary has been released for general sale? Or if anyone knows where I could get hold of it? Something I've wanted to have a plug at for a while.
I have just been on the West of England grading tables and noticed that a band appealed against relegation and they have not been relegated. I'm not having a dig, I'm just interested into the conditions of which a band can appeal against going down a section?
