Players wanted

Dunston Silver Band

Are looking for players of any standard or age to join our band.

We are well known for our happy , friendly nature ( and an excellent social side) :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

We practice in a community centre in Dunston, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear
in a room which has been specially adapted for brass band use.

We have a junior band which is up and coming and a very able conductor.

If you dont have an instrument, one can be provided.

Any transport problems can also be arranged to the practices which are on a Monday and Wednesday evening bet 7.30pm and 9.30pm.

This band is a joy to be a part of,and one which you will feel a part of very quickly.

The band is within a short travel from Newcastle and Sunderland Universities, so come on down and have a blow, I did and i've never regretted it.

For further details see our website at

Tim the room has 30 chairs and there is a new cupboard to put the stands and music in. Specially adapted is taking things a bit far :lol: :lol: :lol:

We are friendly and the social side is good though. I do however have a specially adaped belly to store copious amounts of ale. 8)

hey guys and girls,

you are really selling your band to potential bandsters! (hehe)...

we also have a specially adapted bandsroom.......designated storage area for instrument cases during rehearsal (old snooker table which is out of use from the welfare!)......

we will eventually get out new bandroom...have seen the plans...we are actually gonna be much closer to the bar :roll: 8) :shock: you can't get a bigger improvement than that can you?

PS tim: the 'would u like to step into my office' chat-up line is over-used by band librarians :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


Well I suppose world domination would include doing one over on Gateshead Brass.

Local rivals, eh? Nice to see you to see you nice!!

You've got a better website than us, but that picture of Vezza needs to be a bit bigger ;)

Where did you rake that photo out from Colin, what a waste of hair, the things I could do with all that hair. :shock:


Ahh yes. That was student Colin. Middle parting, floppy cows lip.

I've seen sense since - I even had my haircut likes yours at one stage. Oh hang on - you don't have a choice!!

Up the Jakeman!

Tim, on the grounds that you didn't go to the last social, I hope you are planning another one.
On a serious note - can I have a look in your cupboard. No really - can I?
Hello Lipsty,

Of course you can look in the cupboard, however there is a form to fill in and of course the booby traps have to be disengaged. The security guard will be off on Monday so that might be the best time to go in. I will be in my usual position ready and waiting !!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :roll: :roll:
Oh and P.S

there will be another social, however i got double booked on the last night out so couldnt go , hope you lot had a great time!!! :D

I'm not sure what your usual position is - maybe I should ask Dave. Or is that another position altogether?
Hopefully you can help me find what I am looking for!
