1st.Tutti Cornet(2nd man down) - Eb Bass - Bb Bass - 2nd Percussion.

This is a good 4th section band, (3rd section locally), which is getting even better. All we need now is the above chairs filled with good, sociable, regular players who like friendly and musically challenging rehearsals. We are currently preparing for Wychaven Entertainment Contest, Fleetwood and Wilkinsons ("Call of the Righteous"), plus a busy schedule of concerts and other events.

Please email me or send me a PM with your phone number.

SOP & 2nd man down,in or around St Helens

THE PARR BAND in St Helens, (home of Beechams Powders and the Wilkinsons Contest), is a warm, friendly, musical band with a warm, friendly, musical MD! 2 1st, 2 3rd, and 11th overall at Delph in the 2004 Whit Friday contest. 1st in their section at Wychavon Entertainment Contest. Best Bass section at Fleetwood. Best Cornet soloist at Wilkinsons. The Parr Band is a 4th section band, (3rd section in the North West), who are moving onwards and upwards. If you want the challenge of being a SOP or 2nd man down with Parr, then you know what to do - PM TIMBONE, or email, or phone him on 0771 352 0926. Tim would also like to hear from you if you play any other instrument, especially percussion and /or kit. You don't want to join a band who have already got there, it is far more exciting to conquer new territory! Remember, all roads lead to St Helens.

There are some lovely little Sop solos in the area test piece.
A CD is planned for April.

At the rate things are going, I will have to do another arrangement of "My Way" - "And now the end is near"

No, not really, but it would be nice to do the area. We are OK for Preston. It would be a shame with all the exciting things planned for 2005, like the CD for instance.

PARR St Helens/SOP/time is running out

I hear on the grapevine that a fine North West band folded tonight! Does this mean that PARR St Helens might get a SOP and a 2nd man down in time for the area? We need to sign someone before 13th February, the day before my 54th birthday! So how about an early present for the MD!
