We are pleased to confirm the band have made the following new signings - Jeff Jones on solo cornet, Alisa Rogers on 2nd Cornet, Anthony Bartley on Bb bass and Krishan Church on kit. The band welcome our new players and look forward to working hard for our preparations for this years Area competition in Llandudno. The signing of these players means the band will go to the Welsh Area competition with a full set of players for the first time in many years. In particular the signing of Anthony Barley on Bb bass means the band will now have a full bass section since the passing of Mr John Ford who sadly passed away in 2010.The band have purposely not taken on any competitions or major concerts leading up to the area in order to prepare fully for the competition.
Conductor James Jones commented: "I am delighted to welcome all four players to the band, each of whom brings vast quality to their section. They have settled straight in to the band sharing the same commitment and passion as longstanding members, I cannot ask for more".
