Not had an update for while and a lot changed. Firstly the band have a new conductor - Stephen Crooks. Stephen took over the baton from Dessie Neill at the beginning of the year and now has been appointed full time conductor. The band wish him all the best and hope to build upon the very good performance from the band in the recent Brass in Concert contest in Fivemiletown.
Other thanks go to Nathan Thompson who back in Febraury won the BBL Solos Champion 'A' Section, and also the Slow Melody section. A great set of wins for Nathan in his 1st year as principal cornet for the Band. And our conductor Stephen came 2nd in the 'A' solos so congrats to him too (and no fooling him saying it is too hard to play something!). And then also to Nathan's wee brother Jordan who won the 17 and Under solo section.
