I tried, but he left and they replaced him with this guy!

It's almost scary sometimes how much he's like Chris... he's even used the immortal words "I think we should do a bit of singing in this one..."

Problem is, I think the conductor of Warwick uni band is a trombone player as well... so that's at least another 4 years till I'm free!!!


I was going to post a good luck message on here for Kev.. but he doesnt need luck :D . A great musician and im looking forward to conducting against him in the coming months and next year :D .

Congratulations to band and conductor :D .
