Boxted Methodist Silver Band, Essex - Vacancies

BMSB currently has a vacancy for a percussionist/kit player.

We are a friendly band that has strong links to the local Methodist church, although you do not have to be a church going person to join. (And no-one will push a bible down your throat :D ) Currently we are not contesting after a difficult time for the band, but hoping to change that in the next few years. The band is progressing quickly and have some big concerts lined up from March. We play a mixture of music both sacred and secular, old and modern.

If you would like any information please pm me in confidence. Please feel free to visit our website -

Any players of any instrument are also welcome, particularly cornets as our principle will be leaving after the Summer.
We are glad to announce that our Principal Cornet will not be leaving us just yet, however we are currently looking for players in all sections. Even if you are in the area for a short time you are welcome to come along.

Urgent vacancy for percussion/kit still required.

Any applications are in strict confidence. PM me or email: or
Unfortunately our Principal Cornet has recieved his first posting in the Royal Navy so will be leaving us in February. We are now inviting applications for the post of Principal Cornet. Contact details as in the above posts.

Up-to-date information will be on our website shortly.
We currently have vacancies for the following seats following a few players changing instruments (and one to cover a holiday).

Front row cornet
2nd Baritone

We have plenty of concerts and socials lined up for the rest of the year, with just the one contest this year - SCABA Folkestone 11th October. It is for this contest we are also looking for

1st Baritone (to cover a holiday that has been booked for over a year)

Exciting times are ahead for the band, as it will be the first contest the band has entered for a number of years and is a combination of the hard work of the committee and players of the band.

No-one will shove a bible down your throat and the band like to socialise at events thoughout the year including a combined rehearsal/social at a local vineyard followed by a BBQ

Contact details are as above.
Following our first contest for a number of years, BMSB are now looking to the future and require the following positions to be filled by dedicated players:

Look forward to hearing from you,
