can you help?
Hope you're having a great time here in the UK. As you well know there is a huge banding tradition here and I'm sure any brass band will welcome you with open arms. I suggest you try asking the same question on the 4 bars rest website (www.4barsrest.co.uk) and post your contact details there , you'll probably find a whole list of bands contacting you rather than the other way around!!!! You mightn't even need to buy your own instrument either as they will probably lend you one.
Hope all goes well for you.
