New Player Singings for Travelsphere

4 Mar 2002

The Travelsphere Holidays Band are delighted to announce the signing of a number of new players to the band.

Paul McGhee is the most recent new member to the band, and is welcomed as the 2nd Eb Bass player, assisting Robin Norman in the line up.

Tim Jones joined the percussion section prior to the Midlands Championships, coming from Kibworth Band. He's delighted to 'keep it in the family' as his father, Dave Jones, played soprano with the band about 20 years ago!

Chris Bayleigh joins the Baritone section on 2nd Baritone and Martin Cooper joins the front row cornet section.

Gary Fountain takes the soprano seat following the recent Midlands Area Championships and brings with him a wealth of banding experience.

The back row cornet section is also pleased to welcome, on a permanent basis, David Purkiss as their new Repiano cornet player. He is currently a student at the Birmingham Conservatoire.
