Jenny Smirk is another new addition joining from the Uppermill Band and takes a seat with the front row cornets. James Owen is making the move from the Heyrod Band to take the Solo Trombone seat and the very experienced Chris Reedy, has taken a vacant position on Bb Bass seat.
Speaking about the new additions, Musical Director, David W Ashworth told A4B: ‘I am very pleased and excited to announce these new signings. It is good to know that the band is still able to attract such quality players. I am convinced that every one of them will have a very enjoyable time with the band. At their first rehearsal, last evening, it was obvious, the difference that they will make to the band in a very short time, I am a very happy MD’.
