The Rothwell Temperance Band has added extra strength to their tuba section for the New Year.

Rothwell in action

 

Rothwell Temperance has added strength in depth to their tuba section with the news that Matt Hindle and Chris Harrison join the top flight Yorkshire band.

Pressure off

Eb tuba Matt is a former member of the band who has spent the last two years at Foden’s. He returns to take some of the pressure off Ed Hodkin who is balancing banding and a trio of energetic young children.

Meanwhile, Chris is a former Brighouse & Rastrick, and most recently Hammonds Saltaire Band Bb tuba and comes into to help as current principal Bb player Ben Rigeon is currently working in Sunderland and is unable to meet all the current rehearsals.

It’s great to sign these guys. They are both experienced players and it’s pleasing to have an even stronger section available to us as a resultDave Roberts
