If you would like a change from all-brass, and can put up with a few reeds and plenty of percussion, then this programe could be for you!

Ahhhh., i remember playing in the first SASWE gig at Ilford, and some of the earlier do's around the country!

The brass players nightmare!: 3 hours of being told to play loud and louder, followed by a concert where we were told to play even louder and louder!!!! Dont think Mr Mackereth had discovered where the 'softer' dynamics were on his computer package!!!! My lips have never been the same again! :lol:

Hope the concert goes well! You lucky reed players, you!!!!! :D
