Excellent basses as always I see…..

4barsrest have just published their Midlands Area review. I quote:

The surprise of the day though rested with the students from University of Warwick's Brass Society. We were simply aghast at finding out how low they'd been placed, having written comments such as "good bold opening phrase", "nicely controlled tempo which keeps moving well" and "lovely solid bass foundation that makes the band's sound so much better", 12th place seemed very harsh indeed. In fact looking through the notes again, it's hard to see a critical remark made on the day other than "a shade inconsistent".
