Like the flag timmy... but fear you may be putting off new recruits - can I say that Timmy is not as scarey as his last few posts made him sound, and the band is fab.... so if you are a cornet player, trombone player or anyone else who just fancies a blow then come on over to our place....the laughter flows and wonky baton is worth the trip alone....trust us..... :lol: :p

the truth about Timmy

I would be inclined to disagree with your assessment of tim's personna (although wonky's is spot on).

Tim IS very scary and my horizons have definately been broadened since knowing him. Last week's pub conversations were most enlightening, even for a girl like me. :wink:

I would however use this as a selling point for the band and would hasten to add to anyone, to not be put off. Come and experience for yourselves.

See you all on Wednesday, as I am being banished to sheffield for my sins on Monday :oops: . Apart from you, Tim, I will see you on Monday.
 
Now people I'm not that scary am I!!!!! :twisted:

A nice friendly sort like me, :D

and Lipsty you little tinker , just because I like mars bars!!!!!!! :D :roll:

and Hornblower, well what can I say another little tinker :D

However the band is great and full of fun, come along and have a go its brill.

Libsty dont know if there tonight, work unfortunatly!!!!! however see how it goes might be able to take some time off!!!!! :( :( . You have permission to enter the demons den and have a flick through , you might find what your looking for :D :wink:

Like it Dave. Keep up the good work!! 8)

Any chance of editing the post to advertise for principal cornet and 2nd Bari as well? With the right recruits we could take on the world - maybe!! :roll:

Nah - for those of us who know the legendary Wonky, it is of no amazement whatsoever that he is unique, nevermind that there aren't more than one of him.

Dunston Band are now sorted. After a three way tussle between Grimethorpe , Fairies and ourselves I am pleased to announce that Norman Dawson will be our Sop player for the Nationals. It will cost us a packet of Marmite crisps at his first practice and some pork crackling after we have played at the contest but it is a bargain for a player of his calibre. We were willing to go as far as a fish lot to get the right man but thankfully signing Normon has save the band about 3 pound. Thanks Norm you are a gent.

Any soprano players need a new challange. Sop friendly band - we dont laugh at split top notes - not much anyway - require ambitious sop player to finish line up for national finals in Harrogate.

Way out of order Mr Baton. I could take you to pubs in Harrogate where you'd be the oldest one in there - but I won't! Save your incontinence pants for on stage!

Cheers

oh dear, see Wonky got a record this time... upsetting the locals BEFORE he even gets there!!! Ah well... better add to the ad, you need a wide and varied sense of humour and a hide like a rhino to play in our band, much mickey taking , but purely in jest... which makes us one of the friendliest and fun bands to be in, i'm sure many of our guest players out there would back that up!!
Wonky is indisposed at the moment, so he won't be able to respond for a bit... but i'm sure he will!

I will look forward to it the younger the better for me:cool: !!

We are still desperate for a Sop and its now becoming very urgent. We did have a backup but this is now out of the window due to illness. Could anyone help even just for a few weeks until the Nationals on September 24th. I am back in hospital for another operation and will be incommunicado for at least 2 weeks so please contact anyone from the band. Contact details on the website www.dunstonband.com:tup
