2018 Has already been a year to remember with new recruits and some familiar faces rejoining our band. In early Spring the band welcomed back Christopher Cutts back to the band on Eb Bass / Baritone, and Norman Gee returned on 3rd Cornet after undergoing surgery on a broken foot.
In late June the band welcomed Janet Witkowski on Solo Horn, Janet has not played in 10 years but its like riding a bike to quote a member of the band.
Last but not least, the band in late July are absolutely delighted to announce the appointment of Clive Fox from Shropshire as the bands new Musical Director. Clive has conducted numerous bands over the years for example: Northop Band, Denton Brass Band & Audley Brass Band. Clive also brings with him his wife Michelle who joins us on Cornet and their Son Daniel on Bass. Welcome!
