Other Information:
(Information recieved from PM) Musicians in the Coventry/Warwickshire area, here's a little plea in case you may be able to help.

I attended a gig (Pete Cater Big Band - A Tribute to Buddy Rich) in the Royal Spa Centre in Leamington Spa on Sunday 14th March. Some equipment belonging to Craig Wild, one of the top jazz trumpet players in the country, went missing from the venue after the gig. Can I please ask that those of you in the know keep an eye out for the equipment?

As it normally is with these things - the equipment could and likely will resurface; some initial possibilities of where would be local music shops, cash converter type shops, and local eBay sellers, so please keep an eye out!

If you see anything that matches the description, please contact Craig directly at

Thanks very much for your help.
