No wonder they are so loved by any bands fan and have a waiting list for people looking to become members. Which skilled brass band person would not jump at the prospect of being part of this band playing at this level.
I wish I had kept up my practice with the Eb Bass but that was a long time ago. (After several decades of neglect it would just take too long to get back to that standard again.) BTW the Bb Bass is the big brother to the Euphonium.
Hey, if you are looking to play you can always approach them about being part of the Bon Accord Silver Band B section. This is a group of reservists helping you start to play again at a senior level and be able to step up when vacancies exist or sickness happens. Come along and speak to them.
They are undoubtedly the North of Scotland’s top band.
