Why has everyone got it in for brass banding? I grew up in banding and it didn't do me any harm........... I think! The point is, banding is just another form of music making and is no more or less valid than any other form. Which is the reason why some of us at FABE still dabble in the odd bit of banding now and again. I performed with a brass band at the European Championships last year and I have to say it was one of the most nerve racking experiences of my life...............a real character building exercise!
