Hi Janet. Do you have any details about who will be playing? I should imagine there will be some pretty big names there as per usual. If there is, then perhaps letting everyone know may get a few more people through the doors to support this very worthy cause.
Hope the concert is a success.
Mark Wears. Pennine Brass.
Correct! However, the band isn't finalised yet as a lot of players are on holiday.
Bands involved so far include YBS, Wingates, Faireys, Fodens, Besses.
Last time I organised a scratch band I booked players weeks in advance and when I rang round a week before I got lots of "oh, I forgot, I can't do it now". So I decided that this year I would leave it until a couple of weeks before to book players and have a couple of gaps.
If anyone could help I am short of percussion, Eb and Bb Bass (one of each) and a 2nd horn.
I've more or less got one organised for Dobcross on August 10th. Players so far from :- Imps, Hepworth, Pennine, B&R, Sellers, Leyland, Lindley, Hebden Bridge, YBS, (think that's it)!!
Simon Wood is conducting.
If anyone is free I still need a B flat bass and percussionist. (Maybe a solo horn too )
