YBS | BrassNeck Quintet | boc

It was a suprise for some, I think a lot of people had Sellers and Leyland ahead of grimethorpe, and not just the Sellers and Leyland camps. :eek:)
Mind you, the JAG did well again, way to go JAG.

Well Done all who competed. Not that i was there to hear mind.
Congrats to Grimey and Sellers.

Unfortunately, I had to get to Huddersfield to pick up my kids from my mum's so again just played and left.

Bit disappointed with our result but as I didn't hear anyone apart from ourselves I couldn't possibly comment.

Does anyone have an opinion about yesterday's playing? Fair result?

Well done all who played, another brilliant day at Spenymoor.


Well done Grimethorpe!
A very well played concert. Not the most entertaining of programmes but nevertheless it had class throughout.

I have to say i was a bit shocked with Scottish Co-op's result. I personally put them in the top 3! I enjoyed their programme very much. Entertaining and well played i thought.

Also, well done Alex Kerwin!!! Great solo. I had no idea you were that good when you were dancing next to me in 'Kongalela' last year! :lol:

I was quite pleased with our result, it would have been hard to beat our 3rd from last year so 4th was quite pleasing.

A very good day in all. Well done to everyone that played.

JAG Mount Charles's programme:
Red Morning Star
Domen (flugal solo)
Scherzo without intstruments (percussion feature)
Bucimis ending
