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.
Just to say thanks for letting me play along with you at the concert for Jackie.
I have known Ken for over 40 years and the thrill of playing again in the same band as him was a wonderful experience. I have a vid of the lazy trumpeter and i will treasure it.

Brassed off was fantastic, the band sounded brilliant, even pcp was good!
I think that those members who couldn't take part this time should try next the band gets another offer like this. Jane has planted seed with Adrian (director) and he is keen to use the band again!!!!!!

Critque in already from the opening night of brassed off, all say the same thing e.g. "This show is fantastic just got back from opening night, v. funny but tragic at the same time, the acting is brilliant and the band were top class. everyone who is going youll have a fab night, if your thinking about going, dont think just go." Well done band, you were ace!

Nice to see the band where i started out is still going and that there remain some familiar faces. Just a shame about the embarrssing pictures of me as a lad!!!
Hope you are all well. Good website (thankfully no embarrassing photos of me!)
Good to see you're as busy as ever! Keep up the good work! I've swapped the Waltham blue for RAF blue - i'm now playing amongst the Euphs in the RAF Waddington Band
Another great Concert and seemed to be enjoyed by all. A special mention must go to the courageous playing of Pete who took on the sacred chair of principle and led the band fantastically. WELL DONE PETE!!!!! It takes guts and a lip of iron to perform in that chair and you should be very proud.
