Brass sextet

Had great fun playing carols firstly in mkt place, then in Morrison's entrance.
2 tpts, me on horn, one euph, one tbn and A on tube!!
First time I've played horn for several months.

Quite chilly but enjoyed the repartee with the punters.(most of it cheeky but that's the way it goes.
Raised a lot of money for the NSPCC so well done the brass players!!

Thropton Concert

Great gig but flamin freezin!! as well as a wild wet night!
Changing room for the band had one heater!

There was just about more audience than band members!
Band played was the first Pirates 3 performance!!

Jazz Octet

Fantastic gig on Sunday 30/11/08 .We're getting tighter although some of the tempos were a bit on the fast side.Vocals are working well.

Still hate the setting up and putting away all my gear!!

I'm getting too old for all of this!!

Concert Band

A lot of the Concert Band were missing last night but we had a good one.

A's daughter had cooked us bikkies: they were scrummy.

We're still unsure about our next CB gig in the wild's of Northumberland on 12/12/08.Not many tickets sold and it'll probably be 6 feet deep in snow, so we'll decide next week!

Tried out some of the Xmas us in to the Xmas spirit,but the folders are getting too full;must collect some stuff in.

Got wrong off M W for breaking the box folder with too many scores!!

Didn't hit the Gin when I went home!!
Had a good rehearsal last night.Plenty of laughs as usual
