I like the sound of a good brass or silver band, takes a lot of dedication to perform well.
Titus and Ozymandias, surely there are some rules or regulations requiring tripping hazards (wire) around or close to the feet of the conductor, he might fall on his a--- or perhaps get his long hair tangled in the slide of those wonderful instruments. Then what would we do?

I do love the sound of a brass band or a male voice choir.

Theres's nothing like a good brass band-it seems so vey English. (I know it's not!)

I especially love a good old Welsh Male Voice Choir!

I'm with you when it comes to brass bands Ken. Back when we used to have walking days, I would stand eagerly awaiting the arrival of the approaching band. Inevitably, as the band got to within 100yards of where I was standing, the music would stop, only to restart again once they'd got 100yards past my chosen position. Regarding the trip hazard, if the conductor were to land on his backside, then that would merely inject an element of comedy into the proceedings as far as I'm concerned, although I do realise that this may sound cruel to some.

Regards. Ozy.
