The Skelmanthorpe Band has announced the signing of Damian Hall as their new solo trombone.

Damian started playing with the Marsden Band, eventually becoming solo trombone at Hammonds under Geoff Whitham. After taking a break from banding he was inspired to play again and has since enjoyed tenures with Wakefield Metropolitan, Stannington and more recently Boarshurst.

Great heritage

Damian told 4BR: "I'm delighted to have been welcomed into the Skelmanthorpe set-up. It's great to be part of such a quality band with a great heritage and mature outlook which strikes the perfect balance between strong musical ambition and a supportive team atmosphere.

I'm really looking forward to preparing for the Grand Shield over the coming weeks."

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
