I'm assuming you mean from a playing perspective Sue? The is an allstar girlie brass thing isn't there? Aren't they called all star girls of brass or something? Maybe I imagined that one. :?

Think I'm on the wrong forum. The poll asks 'girls or boys - which would you pick'.

Girls every time for me I'm afraid.

They don't call me Straight mute for nothing.

I agree, its a bit ambiguous, are we asked to vote for our sex, or our preference?!
There's 8 girls in our band.

us girls are reliable , committed (or should be! :wink: ) and of course better players (and MDS.......... well maybe................ sometimes). In my band there is an even number of girls to boys!............maybe thats why we all get on so well!! :)

We're still a little way behind some of the continental bands. When Eikanger played in the Europeans in Birmingham (coming 1st in the own choice and 2nd overall, if I remember) they had more female than male players. That included an all-female trombone section, and very impressive they were - maybe one in the eye for any male-chauvinist bass-trom players who may be lurking in the forum!

Good answer!

I hope that I didn't spoil your performance the other week with my offhand remark...obviously I'd been distracted by Hornblower's eyes.

Mr Bale I hope your not counting me in your sweeping statement.

I have a recording of Eikanger playing Variations on an Enigma by Sparke. I have to hold my hand up and say that those 4 young ladies who play the 7 Positioned Beast for Eikanger are a fantastic section. Powerful and precise. Bravo ladies.

Also I hear that there is a Female bass trom player here on the forum who has played for YBS. I bet she could out blow all the so called chauvanist bass tromplayers on here.

The Bass Trom is a weapon to be feared and reveared in all bandrooms whether in male or Female hands.

So Nerrrrrrr Ner na Ner Ner :wink:

As an erstwhile proponent of the thumb-valved slush-pump myself, I did not really think there would be anyone in our illustrious company who would match that description - must have been thinking of one of my other forums!

Back to Eikanger, at the Europeans they played the Bourgeois Concerto Grosso, and the trombones are not exactly idle there, either. I have to say it must be one of the most memorable live performances, in or out of a contest, that I have ever had the privilege of hearing, and many in the hall thought they might have pipped YBS for the overall title that year.
