Portishead

 

Portishead Band has announced the signing of three new players, with the news that Andy Lee (flugel), Nathan Jenkins (trombone) and Tony Nash (BBb bass) have joined the ranks.

After spending many years with Bendix Band and latterly Bristol East & Kingswood in Bristol, Andy fills the vacant flugel seat. Nathan joins to complete the trombone line up, whilst ex-Sun Life player Tony Nash joins the bass section.

The experience they bring will add a huge boost to our confidenceBand Manager, Dan Jones

Delighted

Band Manager Dan Jones told 4BR: "We are delighted to be able to attract signings of the calibre of Andy, Nathan and Tony and see this as something of a coup.

We’re all looking forward to the challenge of Yeovil and getting to grips with the test piece for the Areas in Torquay in March. The experience they bring will add a huge boost to our confidence."
