Askam Town Silver Band are looking for new brass players

Calling all brass players... Askam Town Silver Band are looking for new blood whether young or old!

They band are trying to get a full musical ensemble again to keep the band together which has been playing to crowds over the past 125 years. 

The band has been lucky enough to secure the help of Mr Andrew Warriner well known BBb Bass player, musical director. professional adjudicator etc who has agreed to take the band once a fortnight and who is hoping with the help of the bands own Mr Harry Martin to encourage some youth back to the band and give lessons prior to rehearsals.

A spokesperson said: "If you're young or old, currently playing or retired please give this some serious thought as so many bands are going down never to be heard of again.

"A band cannot be held together by good intentions alone it needs bums on seats.

"If you have an instrument and would like to join we practice on a Wednesday evening from 7.30pm - 9.30pm. 

"Anyone interested in joining but require an instrument or have any other information request can message us via the Askam Town Silver Band Facebook group."
