Indian Queens Band is proud to announce the appointment of Mark Arnold as their new Musical Director. Mark comes with a wealth of banding experience, playing with such bands as Black Dyke Band and Grimethorpe Colliery Band amongst many others. He has played many instruments, but is mainly a percussionist. In his playing career his memorable moments amongst so many to mention were winning the Nationals with Grimethorpe, especially on the back of the pit closures. Playing at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1998 as part of the half time entertainment. Performing at the prestigous Carnegie Hall in New York, and of course being in the film "Brassed Off!".
Most recently he took the position of Musical Director to St Austell Youth Band in 2012, and had his first success in the Training Section at the West Of England Bandsman Festival in Bugle. A very creditable 3rd place in the Youth Section followed at the SWBBA Contest in Torquay later that year too. Mark still continues to hold this roll for them and is striving to see them reach even more success.
Mark says "I am absolutely loving giving something back to banding after it has treated and continues to treat me so well. I am so looking forward to help and progress Indian Queens Band. They have a great group of players here, and all at the band would welcome new and old players to join us."
