    Would you support an independant investigation?

    Quote from another thread "If the original poster would like the details of an independant media contact already investigating the way our banding instituition operates, please get in touch. The contact will deal only with fact." Does our banding institution need an independant investigation...

    Holiday Players

    Prompted by this comment in another thread, "I found 4 bands in the area - Bideford, Appledore, South Molton and Torrington, but of all their websites, only Bideford have an invite to Holiday players!", I got to wondering what other bands' attitudes were to the odd (=occasional ;)) player...

    Tenor Horn/Euphonium duet

    Does anyone know of a duet specifically arranged for tenor horn and euphonium, please? I have been asked to find one, and, so far, have failed miserably. There are plenty of Eb/Bb duets, but they tend to be for soprano cornet or tenor horn with Bb cornet or Bb flugel. If such an animal does not...

    What is a "Community" Brass Band?

    A recent poster referred to a band as being a "Community Brass Band". Many bands refer to themselves as being a "Community" brass band. Some incorporate the word "community" into the band's official name. A band local to me officially describes itself as being "The Only Community Brass Band in...

    The Union Flag is offensive - official!!!

    Read the story here It makes my blood boil - the Met have such a strict dress code that front-line officers are allowed out to police the G20 demo after they removed their identifying collar numbers, but wear a small Union Flag and officers are threatened with the Police Discipline Code...

    Well done, Steve Critchlow and Burbage

    I've just been watching "Flog It" on BBC2 and, during the half way "break" Paul Martin visited the Burbage Bandroom in Buxton and had a chat with Steve Critchlow. What smashing advertisement for banding. The interview was interspersed with shots and sound of Burbage Band playing - very...

    Broken any Resolutions yet?

    Years ago, I only made one New Year's Resolution, which I managed to keep until now - that was not to make any New Year's Resolutions. Just before last Christmas, my wife gave me a bookmark, on which was written a prayer that was attributed to a 17th century nun. By the time I had read halfway...

    AARGH...What happened??

    I've just been onto the "The G Bass Trombone" thread and the background on my screen went pink and all the buttons disappeared :eek: - I like buttons and I'm not fond of pink (as a background, that is). Was it something I did, said or thought? No other thread has been so affected (afflicted?)...

    Valve trombones

    Recurrent and painful shoulder and elbow problems have made me put aside by beloved trombone for the foreseeable future. Not wishing to give up my banding (or to become a shedbuilder ;)) I have started learning how to play a valved instrument (tenor horn, if you must know). However, it was...

    If your instrument could talk...

    I've just been listening to Brian (Louis Hamilton's racing car) being interviewed on Radio 4. No, really! We spend a lot of time discussing the merits/demerits of our (and other) instruments. If your instrument could talk, what would be it's name and what would it say about YOU? Please be...

    Stereotypification (wot?)

    It’s all too easy to stereotype a whole group of people having simply observed, or having been the subject of the inconsiderate, careless or spiteful action of a minority of that group. For example, a motorist, having been delayed on his way to an important appointment by a tractor driver who...
