Christmas Concert 2011

Hi fellows


what a great evening I had on the 18th. I cannot express how much it meant to play in the bandroom again after so many years, but what a bonus it was to meet so many of my old freinds and to be conducted by Jonah, who in no uncertain terms has shown what a grounding in the fellowship we had at Glossop can lead to if you have commitment. I know that several of my contemporaries went on to make great names for themselves within the higher echelons but I am sure that not one of them forgot their roots. Mine started with Jack Fletcher who heard me during a woodwork class as I was singing Hi Ho its of to work we go whilst spoke shaving a curly end of a bookshelf. To see the man who gave me the love of my life ( Eb Bass ) because I could not play a 3rd cornet part quietly enough for the solo cornet to be heard made my night. If you read this Jack, Many thanks.

Whit Friday - 2011

It was a real pleasure to see and hear "my" band last night, playing brilliantly at Dukenfield where you took 2nd prize overall, beating Fairey's into 3rd place.  Nobody plays that cornet solo better than Blakey with his unmistakeable sound.  I couldn't see much though because of the light reflecting off the back of Stuart's head.  No sign of aging among the female members though - still as glamorous as ever; Julie, Mandy, Marcia, Jemma .... you haven't changed at all.  And Alison, how come you still look 18???

Well done to everyone.  You sounded fantastic and made my night very special.

Glossop Scouts World Jamboree Concert - Saturday 20th November 2010

On behalf of the Glossop and District Scout Jamboree Committee I would like to thank Glossop Old Band for the support they have now shown on two occasions to Scouts attending the World Scout Jamboree.

The evening was extremely popular and everybody that left the building commented on how much they had enjoyed the whole evening.  The atmosphere was excellent, the music  excellent and the evening was very much enjoyed by everyone who attended.

Please pass on our thanks to the Band and Conductor and also to the bar staff who worked really hard all evening and were also very helpful when we were dishing out the supper.

Thanks once again for a brilliant evening.

Glossop/Bad Vilbel Twining Association Concert, Saturday 10 July

May I, on behalf of the Committee and Members of the Twinning Association, ask you to pass on to all the members of the band on Saturday evening and to the bar staff our thanks for their hard work. The concert was well attended and I am sure everyone enjoyed themselves. The evening was very hot and it must have been hard for the band members to summon the energy to play the instruments.
