Old and New!

The band would like to welcome to the band Andy Bradley (1st horn) a warm welcome back to Trevor Allen (Eb bass)

Trevor started with Tintwistle Junior band when he was 9 then moved to Mirlees Works Band age 14, before moving to Fairy Engineering Band (1975-1977).  He joined Post Office Band in 1978 which then became British Telecom before moving back to Tintwistle Band in 1979. In 997 he joined Glossop Band where he stayed until 2005. After a two years break he then joined Silk Brass in 2007 until rejoining Glossop in 2015.

Trevor is a retired fireman and loves spending his time with his granddaughter and classic cars (but hopefully not at the same time!).  He is a member of 2 local classic car clubs and MG owners club. 

Andy is married to Diane and has 2 sons Ben and James (Ben is principle cornet at Silk Brass).

He works as a ‘Vehicle Damage Assessor’ and has done so for 29 years with major insurance companies and lately for Lex Autolease.Apart from banding, he is a staunch supporter of Manchester City (this will go down well with Stuart and Dave) and is a season ticket holder.

He lives in Whaley Bridge and started his banding career with the Whaley Bridge Band on cornet under former Glossop Band Euphonium player Peter Cordey, he played with Whaley for 24 years before becoming a founder member of Silk Brass from Macclesfield.

During his 17 years with Silk there were many contest successes and gained status from the 3rd Section (including 3rd section National Champions in 2002) to the pinnacle of Championship section in 2011.

He retired from banding in 2013 due to the increased pressure of work and commitment required of a busy banding diary but has realised that 1 rehearsal per week creates a fantastic work/life balance.
Andy is looking forward to a renewed acquaintance with Glossop Band after several appearances with them in the late 90’s.
