Well done to Hoover and all the prize-winners.

Thanks Nick for your help and glad to see you enjoyed yourself. It was great to see that Austin won best soloist as well. A top player and a top arranger.

Thanks again Nick hope to see you again soon.

No worries...bout time a band came along and were entertaining for a change..yes only a point behind Pemberton and beating current welsh Championchip and 1st section bands..Brilliant..
anytime the band need a hand will help out...one condition tho , dont want to sit in front of Mike again...dont think I can take another 20 top d's and E's on cornet...my ears still ringing
