I seem to remember someone making a comment about there being loads of midlands/yorkshire bands...thought it might be interesting to find out.

Where is your band?

Interesting poll!

..but being classified as 'other' hurts :cry:

What's wrong with 'offshore' or 'what's income tax?'?

I'm 'other' obviously, just voted

...or am I being a complete dipstick and you're asking what region we play in :?:
I had assumed it was the geographical area, as my Salvation Army band is obviously not affiliated to any region. Hence I still marked the L & SC box.

Of course this is all rendered pointless by lots of people from the same band all voting for their band! :D

Perhaps it should be "Which region do you come from?"

We are based in Stanley Co Durham.

You have to remember that the calendars are permanently set to 1936 up there. It like a Geordie Version of last of the summer wine.

My band is based in Yorkshire but we compete in the North of England region, along with all other bands from North Yorks, the City of York and the East Riding.

The 'Yorkshire Region' is really a misnomer but I don't suppose they'll ever change the name (to become the 'West and South Yorkshire Region') which would sound just a little bit parochial.

Thinks: Brighouse and Rastrick - champions of West and South Yorkshire ...

It sometimes creates problems - I once had to explain to a TV producer how two Yorkshire-based bands could both claim to be regional champions, and got into a big mess. :?

We're in Yorkshire. Although I have been with bands in the North East, Yorkshire and the Midlands. I used to travel from the North East to Yorkshire and then from Yorskshire to the Midlands on a train, never again!! For 19 I think I've done a canny bit of traveling already!

That was a right BOC thing to say!!!

Another "other" here. Actually I'm rather heartened by the notion that there are more of us "others" than it seemed.

Others of the world unite! (perhaps not.)

My band is from Telford in the West Midlands.
However there does seem to be the most posts from people in North/Yorks regions?

I'm one of the Straightmute gang and yup, it is confusing! But I also play in an unregistered band in Yorkshire (the West Riding bit) so I'm utterly bamboozled....

I voted North as that's where Harrogate compete!
