Gresswell set to return

Star tuba player set to return to his former banding alma mater.

YBS

 

Simon Gresswell, former YBS tuba player, is to return to the band.

Asked about his return to YBS Simon commented to 4BR: “I left the band in 2005 in order to spend more time with my children Lauren and Rosie and my wife Fiona. I also set up my own business in early 2006 which has been a huge success."

New era

He added: "The year off has given me the chance to build my business and spend lots of quality time with my family. However, the lure of playing for such a great band as YBS was a big pull. I am delighted to return to the band on the cusp of a new era. It's an exciting challenge that I fully intend to play a part in."
