Our erstwhile bumper-upper extraordinaire Jack Reeves is moving on up to the Championship section and has accepted a seat at nearby top-section band Newstead. His musicality and enthusiasm will be greatly missed by everyone in the band, but our front row especially.

Jack joined us while a first year student at Nottingham University and has spent four years with us. His playing has always been top-notch and he’s been a solid understudy and bumper-upper for our principle cornet Andy Allison. It is a great shame to lose a player like Jack, but the pleasures of the top section await and the band wish him all the best for the future.

Thank you Jack – you’ve been great ambassador for Carlton Brass. Enjoy your time at Newstead!

This does mean that we now have a vacancy for second man down. Any good quality cornet players interested in joining us please do get in touch. Email info@carltonbrass.co.uk in confidence, or visit our Contacts page for people to ring.
