Glad to see you're still as busy as ever! I still "pop in" to the website to keep an eye on you all. I'm having a sabbatical from banding at the mo to concentrate on my flying...but when I have my wings... i'll unstick the old valves and get back to "Barrying!"

Dear Band Many thanks for your "leaving" card and all the good wishes. It has been great fun sitting around the band for the last 20 years on and off!! Visited some great venues over that time especially Cow Pond. May I wish you every success for the future and the release of the double CD ( I want a copy),,that was hard work but I am sure a great result was achieved. With Best Wishes Dave Rothery
ps looks like I might be around until the end of June..so call if you are stuck over the next few weeks

Hi, in 2010 I was fortunate to attend the performance of Brassed Off. It was fantastic. The Elvis impersonator I thought lacked a little class though. Keep up the good work. Special greetings to Howard Lunn.

Hi. Just visited your site again and would like to compliment you on the excellent format and to know the band is do-ing so well,must be at least four years since I 'logged on'!! and I am very proud of the fact my family association with the band goes back to the early days, my grandpa Harry was bass drummer and my dad Gilbert was cornet player before WW1. I live in Canada and am a vet.WW2.

Hi all – particularly Derek Holland and Ted Cull.
I stumbled across the band website by accident but saw a couple of familiar faces. I played on the front cornet bench under Derek (mid 1980s) when he was at West Wycombe, and envied Ted’s sound and technique from the back bench of the same band before that (early 1980s/late 1970s?) .
I have lived abroad for the past 15 years, but will keep my eye on your engagements lists in case I’m ever over and can get over to hear the band.
All the best to you both,
Band sounded good at the Concert in Waltham St Lawrence on Saturday. Look forward to next concert.
