Come join the merry band!

posted 2 Mar 2012, 03:15 by Admin
As the Oxted Band prepares for it's 2012 season, we have a couple of empty seats ready for enthusiastic brass players who may be looking for a new challenge.
In particular we are seeking an Assistant Principal Cornet, a capable, reliable, cornet player to back up our Principal, Kevin, as he leads the playing of the band.  We also have space in the Bass section for either a Eb or Bb bass tuba player to broaden the solid bottom end of our sound!  Our percussion section continues to add the bangs and crashes to events in the bandroom, and would benefit from another player, whether preferring tuned or kit, or a bit of both!
At the same time, our training band continues to thrive with additional players joining us, but we always need more.  Whether you have already started playing or are a complete beginner, we'd love to see you.
Why not come along to a rehearsal and see what goes on.  For the Oxted Band, please contact our chairman, Barry Smith, 020 8669 2302 or, and for the Training Band, please email our organisers at
Go on, do it now!
