That would be a great shame, and a sad loss to the movement. In any case, surely a band of YBS' stature has concert bookings beyond next week that they will need to fulfil?tromtim said:As has been said the players have shown tremendous loyalty to DK and opinion amongst many of the players is that next weekends concerts may be the last.
Normally, I don't agree with this. So many top section bands have folded because they couldn't maintain their playing standard and didn't want to face a few years rebuilding in the lower sections. Sun Life, Point of Ayr, Kennedy's Swinton Concert, CWS Manchester, William Davis Construction Group..... the list goes on and it just seems such a waste. However in this case YBS are so synonymous with King that for a new MD to come in and make their mark seems almost impossible. Big shoes to fill! If a majority of players choose to follow DK in whatever he does next it's hard to see where YBS go next.tromtim said:Without doubt they have been the 'band of the decade' and their European feats will probably never be matched. Perhaps it is better that they go out at the top.
That said, there is another band in the "structure", the former Hammonds Hawley now YBS Concert. I don't know how the structure works; are they still related in some way? Or are they now entirely unrelated bands?
