Bono has every right to bash Brexit onstage — rock is meant to provoke debate Neil McCormick. Not quite together at Solenne but I love the dynamic and guts to tongue each one cleanly. Lovely baritone and all fast notes are accurate. A little untidy trombones at G great style and tambourine is great as is sop. Trombone spot on style wise.

Again horns keep the pitch even in decrescendo. K Balance again is very good- yes repiano and trombones. Good rallentando into N. Take care of the easy stuff though the long note. Great ensemble at R dances nicely and tubas quartet well. T Superb technique shown. Percussion balanced and accurate at U Good dynamic and ensemble is tight.

Soprano has a good go this is tough. X Back row are the stars of the show!!! Now keep listening to tuning as you get tired, especially in unison stuff.

The full results are as follows: During his stay of around 18 months Bob has proved himself a valued member of the Hull-based band and a big character who will be missed. A further change in his work and personal circumstances made such a resolution impossible.

We wish Bob and Martina all the best for the future. The Hull-based band has confirmed its debut appearance in the highly prestigious Brass In Concert competition at the iconic The Sage in Gateshead on November The event, which attracts banding fans from all over the country, and many from abroad, is pre-drawn and the EYMS Band will take to the stage third to deliver its minute programme of sound and vision. It brings us a lot of kudos and is a testament to our musicianship and burgeoning reputation in the world of entertainment.

We will be proud to represent Hull at The Sage and help to further put the city on the musical map as its rolls ever nearer to the City of Culture celebrations in Bands are judged on their musical and technical ability, concert content and its entertainment value.

As well as the main title, there are a plethora of awards for sections and individual players. EYMS has built up a fine reputation for its ability to entertain its audience with a high class of musicianship having won the Bolsover Festival of Brass in and , and the Kippax Entertainment Contest in and They were third overall in at the contest, which has the richest prize fund in the banding world. Please visit our engagements page to view other opportunities to hear the award winning East Yorkshire Motor Services Band.

EYMS performed at the hall last year after a lengthy absence in Beverley and the response has encouraged the band to return this year. This final qualifying competition for the British Open sees twenty of the country's best bands competing for two invitations to Birmingham's Symphony Hall in September , to take their place amongst the banding elite in the British Open. Drawn to play in the dreaded number one spot, the band gave a performance that set the bar high, but ultimately not high enough.

However the final placing amongst the company of the other bands - whilst disappointing - is still one along with the performance to be proud of. The live 4barsrest commentary for the our performance read as follows: Some tentative sounds as the atmosphere takes time to settle. Solo entries are decidedly mixed in quality but the changing atmospheres are well captured and flugel does well. There are ragged entries along the way but excellent cadenza from solo trombone.

It's so difficult to create warmth in the dryness of this acoustic. Good Con Fuoco which has venom and the transitions are well handled. Builds well and there is now a sense of momentum about the performance that has taken time to come to life.

The shifting sands lead us into a slightly nervous Tranquillo and although the Largo builds to a bracing final flourish this was a performance that didn't quite ignite this morning.

An unsettled opening account from EYMS and one that demonstrates just how tough the bands are going to fine this piece today. To visit the 4barsrest website please click here. The two adjudicators the composer Stephen Roberts along with Rob Wiffen had the following to say about our performance: Just a little untidy at C and somewhat over drawn out into D.

D flows well, but slows too much before F and loses momentum. At F the solos seem very stretched but it has pleasing grace if not quite the clarity it might. H is energetic and pleasing solos at I.

Solo cornet is confident and good solo trombone. Good solo tuba and trombone. Slight slip from Solo horn and some hesitation in the pianissimo section in cornets It's tough!!! Good crescendo in Tenuto, some lack of control into DD but a convincing close. There were a few places where some detail was lacking and a few little slips but overall this was very enjoyable. Good start and nicely judged textures at A - fortes could be more prominent.

Bars 32 - 34 watch watch length of minims. D a little fast and scrambled - but then slower before F why so rubato? Trombone good - a little sharp. H just a little untidy. I just wonder whether some of these tempo fluctuations are too liberal. Well done solo cornet. J - intonation not good in chords and again at N Timpani too loud and rhythm not secure.

Euphoniums secure - not always in tune. Bar not quite and not hearing crescendo. R - a little splashy. T neat detail well done good tuned percussion - just splits at U. V - W all okay - not completely tight. Lower cornet detail lost at X. A few odd splashes but pretty secure through Y. AA - again chords a little out. Bar Tuned percussion not quite. Bar not quite solo horn. Occasionally we need more middle to build the sound on. Bar a little edgy. The final positions are as follows: The solo prize was won by Brett Baker, the solo trombonist with the Woodfalls Band.

Band still in top twenty 11th May With the latest favourites announced by All Brass Radio, the band has just continued to maintain a position in the top 20 - Cry Me A River arranged by the band's musical director is in 20th place. To listen to All Brass Band Radio, please visit their website and of course please vote for tracks that you enjoy - especially those performed by the East Yorkshire Motor Services Band.

The concert has now become a regular fixture in Hessle and a full house is expected. It all adds up to a must-see show for the band, which formed in and quickly achieved a status which sees them today competing in the same sphere as bands with more illustrious history.

EYMS, the four-time North of England champions and regular national finalists at the Royal Albert Hall, are currently preparing for the important Grand Shield contest at Blackpool in May, a feeder for the British Open, the oldest and arguably top contest in the world.

Any remaining tickets will be available on the door. Band hits the charts 16th April Since the end of , the online radio station All Brass Band Radio has added a new feature to allow listeners to vote on the popularity of each track played. Finally so far , March saw the re-appearance of Skyfall at number 12, with the Old Rugged Cross at All of these tracks are from last year's CD recording The Old Rugged Cross, details of which may be found by following this link. To listen to All Brass Band Radio, please visit their website.

This was the first time for some thirty years that this event hadn't been held in the Dolphin Centre, Darlington, and all agreed that the move was a positive one. Not only was this a purpose built theatre, but a warm up room was provided - a complete contrast to the previous sports hall and no provision to warm up. Drawn to play number one out of nine, the adjudicator Paul Cosh had the following to say about our performance: Some clips horn good trombone.

Good tempo but some untidy playing after All moves well if a little frantic. Eb bass and Euph low pedal? Detail is all heard around , could be quieter mp!! Good tuning at sensitive playing in the Andante Sciolto well managed little clip at I like the open soprano.

Some music making happening Very good. Brave and good cornet. A well managed crescendo to Last chord not quite in tune or balanced. However a very good performance that took a while to get going. Some fine solo playing and very musical. Unfortunately, the performance wasn't good enough to be awarded one of the two qualification places for the National Finals.

The following individual prizes were awarded by the adjudicator: Reg Vardy Best Percussion: Parking is available in the St Stephens Centre car park. Brief cadenzas for solo tuba and euphonium follow, and lead to the second variation, a slow episode involving a harmonic background which Eric Ball used in A Kensington Concerto and his Salvationist tone poem, The Eternal Presence. After a warm climax we arrive at the third variation, an animated, scherzo-like episode which is brought to a sudden cessation as we enter the fourth variation, Andante e sciolto molto fairly slowly with much freedom which involves a romantic melody for a solo cornet developed by the full band at pianissimo level.

Whilst a difficult piece to play, it is a piece that appeals to the listener and unlike many modern compositions, has tunes that are both memorable and whistle-able. We hope that you will be able to join the band on this evening as we build up towards our appearance at the North of England 'Area' contest.

There are nine bands competing in the championship section on Sunday and although this is a small field compared to some regions, it is still a highly competitive one. Further details and results will appear on the band website after the weekend. The three prize winners are as follows: Weir, Kingston upon Hull Ticket No.

Thank you to all the people that bought tickets in this draw and supported the band by doing so. The band, which this year again competed at the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall, with musical director Alan Morrison, aims to roll out the Christmas spirit with a warming mixture of traditional carols and festive favourites, featuring classy soloists on the way. If any remain for what is usually a popular event, they will also be available on the door.

On Wednesday, December 10, at 7. Farther afield, on Saturday, December 20, the band performs at the Trinity Arts Centre, Gainsborough, in its first festive appearance at the venue following on from our successful spring concerts, and already tickets are already being sold at a rapid rate. Tickets for this event can be purchased at the box office or by visiting the website www. Again, this has always been a well-attended concert so it is advisable to book first. Lest We Forget - A musical tribute.

A Remembrance Concert to honour those who fought and gave their lives in the First World War is to take place in Scunthorpe in November. The first half will feature a selection of music performed by the top Hull-based band and will showcase some of its highly-rated soloists.

The second half will be opened by the band before a drumming display by the Air Cadets. The band will then play a finale followed by the National Anthem. Come along and blow. The East Yorkshire Motor Services Brass Band invites brass and percussion players to come and join us and sit in for a rehearsal under the direction of our Musical Director, the renowned cornet player and Chairman of the Association of Brass Band Adjudicators, Alan Morrison.

This is a great opportunity to meet the players and to see what it is like to play in a Championship Section brass band. Parents, family and friends are very welcome to come and listen. Bring your instruments and come for a blow.

We look forward to seeing you. The rehearsal starts at 7. Please contact the band if you require any further details - our contact details may be found by following the link to our contact page. Experienced BBb bass player Mark Wilkinson has signed for the Hull-based band and will make his bow at the showpiece in South Kensington.

The public rehearsal, with free admission, will take place at the Albemarle Music Centre on Ferensway, Hull, from 7. Mark has now made the move permanent, filling the vacancy which arose when Steve Gibson had to step down for family reasons.

They are a great bunch of people and I've always really enjoyed being a part of the music they make on stage. Here's to many years of the same. Meanwhile, Lars, who plays with the Molde Brass Band, has come in for Kevin Donaldson, who has had to pull out of the contest because of work difficulties. Lars also is no stranger to top-end banding, having occupied the soprano seat for 10 years with the Manger Musikklag Band, and is a regular stand-up soloist for Molde.

His arrival for the contest renews a link between Molde and EYMS, front bench cornet player Jorgen Brecke having also flown over in to help the band at the areas that year. World-class brass - all for free. The band has started an intense period of rehearsals for the showpiece competition, which takes place at the iconic London building on Saturday, October And as part of the run-up to the big day, the band and musical director Alan Morrison is to give an open rehearsal on the set work for the contest, The Legend of King Arthur, by Peter Meechan.

The work is around 16 minutes long and, as well as the regulation 25 brass players, there are busy parts for four percussionists, featuring, among other instruments, marimba, tubular bells and vibraphone.

The band is really engaging with the piece, which is very listenable, and we look forward to sharing this music with our regular followers and hopefully lots of new friends too. The Legend of King Arthur is a musical portrayal of some of the most important moments in the legend, from his ascension to the throne by pulling the sword from the stone, his courageous battles with his fellow Knights of the Round Table, to his ultimately tragic love for Guinevere.

Strangely, for such an essentially English story, the work was commissioned in by Michael Bach and Brass Band B u rgermusik Luzern of Switzerland, to whom the work is dedicated. The National Finals line-up for the Royal Albert Hall is one of the strongest for many years, including 16 qualifiers from eight regions, including Scotland and Wales, and four pre-qualifiers. Luzern musical director Bach is one of the adjudicators, along with Derek Broadbent and Stephen Roberts, who will have their work cut out in trying to find a winner.

EYMS, formed in , has now qualified for 13 National Finals since achieving championship section status and has been North of England champions four times since Following on from yesterday's appearance on Radio Humberside, the band is now featuring on the internet radio station All Brass Bands Radio. This station provides a twenty-four brass band constantly changing play list which will include tracks from the band's recently recorded CD 'The Old Rugged Cross'.

To visit this online station please follow this link. The programme starts at 9am and band chairman Tony Newiss and media officer Simon Blow will be interviewed at some point during the morning. It is also hoped that as part of the feature and interview, music from the band's latest CD recording will be broadcast. The programme will be available to listen to online for seven days after the broadcast by following the link to BBC Radio Devon. In part five of the series, which airs at 8pm, the cameras take in the annual Big Bus Day at the Streetlife Museum in the city, which the band plays at each year.

As part of the festivities, the band is seen in action, and the lens settles on some of the players. In one of the most enduring collaborations in modern-day banding, the company this year celebrates 22 years of sponsoring the band, which changed to its current name from the City of Hull Band in to recognise the support from the EYMS Group.

The band is no stranger to television having been exposed to a global live Sky audience when it played the national anthems and other patriotic music before England defeated New Zealand in the Rugby League Four Nations series at the KC Stadium in Hull in It is expected that the title track from the new disc will be featured on the Thursday, September 4, edition. For the second year running there was a three-way tie for the Players' Player of the Year, awarded after a secret ballot, with principal cornet Neil Day, flugel star Kathy Newiss and bumper-up Bradley Hanson sharing the prize.

Bradley was also in the winning trio last year. Again for a second successive year, the President's Award for Outstanding Contribution went to chairman and front row solo cornet player Tony Newiss. This award is also decided by a secret ballot of the band's membership.

Alex is shortly heading to the Royal Northern College of Music to continue his musical studies, so the band is looking for a tuned percussionist to take his place. All of the awards were presented during the band's recent concert in the Memorial Hall, Beverley. David Hirst, the conductor, adjudicator and former Soprano Cornet with Black Dyke, has taken up playing again and becomes the new assistant principal cornet to top man Neil Day. Band Chairman Tony Newiss completes the solo cornet row. Elsewhere, Lee Durrant comes in on 2nd baritone to renew a partnership with solo baritone player Bob Morton, a pairing for many years previously with the Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band.

Stuart Clarke, the former Ransomes player is the new EYMS bass trombonist, taking over from the long-serving Alistair Shipman, who has stepped down to concentrate on conducting.

Meanwhile, the band is currently looking to appoint a BBb bass player to replace Steve Gibson, who leaves this summer for family reasons, and two tuned percussionists to take the place of Alex Smith, who heads off to the Royal Northern College of Music in September, and Siobhan Shay, also bound for university.

Following on from their success at the North of England Brass band Championships, the band were straight into rehearsals to prepare for an appearance in the final qualifying competition for the world famous British open Contest.

Only a handful of the current band line up have played at the Open and always with other bands, as the EYMS Band have never qualified for this prestigious contest. On Saturday 26th April the band headed for Blackpool for this year's qualifier - last year the band were promoted from the Senior Cup into the Grand Shield and whilst claiming one of the two Open qualifying places was always the aim, we were determined to remain at this level of contesting, after several years of yo-yoing between the two events.

This years event was one of the strongest line ups for many years and once the dust had settled the band were pleased with their final placing of 8th. Flowers Paul Holland - 13 2. Hammonds Saltaire Morgan Griffiths - 56 3. Whitburn Ian Porthouse - 16 4. Reg Vardy Stephen Roberts - 24 5. Tongwynlais Temperance Jeremy Wise - 12 6.

Rothwell Temperance David Roberts - 26 7. Marsden Silver Glyn Williams - 27 8. Thoresby Colliery Brian Grant - 46 Woodfalls Dr Nicholas Childs - 18 Northop Silver Thomas Wyss - 32 Burry Port Nigel Seaman - 21 Aldbourne David Johnson - 31 Redbridge Alan Duguid - 47 Newstead Brass Duncan Beckley - 71 Jaguar Land Rover Dave Lea - The two adjudicators had the following to say regarding the band's performance: Excellent start - atmosphere created.

Allegro , Neat and cohesive, the music dances along just as it should. I All goes well, Trombones fine, I could take a little more in fact, however, the standard is high. O Again very expressive from Solo Cornet loyally supported by band - just the odd bumpy moment. Q Very artistic from Euphonium - but again not without flaw.

The Devil's Grave good atmosphere and drama. A very good performance but not without flaws to be taken into account. An effective opening creating the right atmosphere. Solo Horn plays in good taste. A little nervy on the second entry. Allegro Well detailed moments ensue to B Good upper Cornets - and all detail is heard - not quite to D - 4. Then you settle again - and build well to E.

Bold Soprano and you drive to F. Not quite as one to open - but you settle. Solo Cornet is in fine form and plays in good style. G Baritones confidently done.

Approach to H feels a shade uncomfortable. H Trombone joins the mixture - this works well. I Trombones good playing in this ensemble - and the ensemble is balanced. Much detail is heard as you progress to L. Trombones not the neatest this time. Accelerando builds well to N. Horn a slight mishap. Euphonium doesn't quite come off in the ritardando. O Pleasing Solo Cornet - nicely supported by all. Tasteful, musical approach in this section.

Q Euphonium - just a shade uncomfortable in one or two places - a pity. R I do hear the detail - this drives on. Sostenuto - controlled and powerful. Build to Devil's Grave - fine. S Cornet plays with taste - nicely supported by all.

Forte - a god ensemble sound is heard - watch those little mispitches - they distract. Vivace A drive for home and you conclude in good style. A performance of many fine things - but those blips and scratches appeared too often.

Thank you very much indeed. And the big honour for the band, in its 25 th year, was achieved in its th contest on Sunday, the North of England area qualifying contest for the National Finals.

EYMS successfully emerged from a pack of eight bands at Darlington to take their place in what will be one of the strongest Royal Albert Hall finals for years. All the qualifying bands in eight regions were required at play St Magnus, by Kenneth Downie, a set of variations based on the well-known hymn tune, reckoned to be the hardest area test piece for years.

The test for London is expected to be announced next month. It means the Hull-based band, formed in , and four times the North of England champions, will be appearing in the Nationals Finals at the Royal Albert Hall for the 13 th time in its relatively short history. The success is the latest in a solid set of contest results which has seen the band achieve a ranking of 29 in the world and 16 in Britain, helped in no small measure by backing for 22 years from the East Yorkshire Motor Services Group, one of the most enduring sponsorships in brass banding.

Before the London showpiece, the band travels to Blackpool next month to take part in the Grand Shield, the feeder competition for the British Open, probably the most prestigious contest on the planet. As part of a busy April, the band also expects to release its first CD for seven years, as well as presenting a concert at the Central Hall Grimsby on Saturday 12th April.

Area Contest - The Adjudicator Writes. Adjudicator David Hirst had the following to say about the band's performance at yesterday's North of England Brass Band Championships: Confident opening but not quite tidy into A. B not quite tidy but recovers into C and closes well. F This settles well and there are some really musical moments.

G Good solo lines - Soprano mezzo forte? Well managed into H. Some uneasy intonation into I. I Good tempo and neat playing 0 but just a little untidy from N. But good approach to O. Nice here - just the odd blemish - well done Solo Cornet. U Good neat playing. X Intonation on C's. Good approach to Z. AA Good technique here and convincing ending. A well directed performance full of merit. There were some untidy moments and elements of intonation. The city-based band and its musical director Alan Morrison are to give a public airing to the Kenneth Downie work St Magnus, a minute work based on the hymn tune of the same name.

St Magnus is the set test for the eight regional contests leading to qualification for the finals of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain in October. The open rehearsal will take place at the Albemarle Music Centre, on Ferensway, Hull, starting at 8pm. We began rehearsing St Magnus around the beginning of February during a particularly busy time when we also prepared to record a CD and made ready for concerts.

But in the last fortnight we have focussed all our energies on the test piece and in this last week the band meets on five nights in an effort to put on the best performance we can in Darlington on Sunday. It is a quite technically demanding work but has some real ly majestic and thrilling moments. The CD, The Old Rugged Cross, containing some of the pieces best received by audiences over the last few years, is expected to be available next month. Miles Davison, who turned to EYMS when he decided to return to playing a year ago, has accepted an invitation to join Grimethorpe on Solo Horn, while Bass Trombonist Alistair Shipman has decided to concentrate on his conducting career.

Miles has now had three spells with EYMS and in the last 12 months has helped the friendly, committed band to some impressive, consistent results. Alistair joined EYMS in and his terrific bass trombone sound has featured in dozens of concerts and helped the band to several successes, together with performances at the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall and other leading competitions.

He has been juggling a busy job, travelling, family life, playing and conducting for some time, but has decided to focus on conducting the Easingwold Town Band, a little closer to home. Bob, who has a long and distinguished career in banding both as a player and conductor, moved to EYMS straight after the Butlins contest. Also returning to the fray is 2nd Euphonium Sam Ringrose, who has been unable to play since late October after a work accident, and the band thank Trevor Bedford for his much-valued help in contests and the busy Christmas period.

At the same time we welcome Bob aboard and hope he enjoys his new challenge. The band and musical director Alan Morrison now move forward with confidence to the North of England Area and the Grand Shield, together with an exciting concert programme.

Both bass trombone and solo horn vacancies have been advertised and those interested can contact the band via our vacancies page. For our entertainment programme, our Musical Director Alan Morrison had selected pieces with an American flavour and present our programme as our American Dream. Starting off with a quintet of players dressed in Abraham Lincoln costumes complete with beards!

Starting with whistles, and party poppers, this fully choreographed piece included three jazz men, before ending with the Band lining the front edge of the stage. This was obviously enjoyed by all present in the audience for the humour in the interplay between Neil and Bradley Hanson - which had to be seen to be believed.

Our finale was the American Civil War Fantasy , complete with battle effects and smoke. This very atmospheric section led in to the big end, and a choreographed acknowledgement of the audience to finish our performance, which was extremely well received by the audience. I appreciate the stage moves.

Some loose ensemble moments, but a great opener. Soloist plays with style and security. A few tuning issues in the middle band. Yes, there are a few accidents along the way, but a great arrangement. Neatly played, some great Soprano Cornet contributions. Sometimes the playing has a slightly 'wooden' feel. Some untidyness in finale band.

American Civil War Fantasy - Good ensemble to start. Well defined dynamics A to B. Some tuning unease in speech section. Again some poor tuning after E. Overall a very well thought out programme. I know exactly how much effort it takes to put a show like this together and mostly it comes off. Star Spangled Banner - Unusual, god start to your programme but intonation not always spot on. Fine brass group tone and balance.

A lot of the phrases need attention. Just the odd light split now and again but it happens to us all sometimes. Just felt I would have liked a little more movement at times. Try upping the tempo slightly. Rule Britannia - Lovely opening Euphonium sound. Some great tonal chords in this arrangement. Good stage shooting effects and commentary.

Some slight mistakes behind the beat notes not speaking. Nice playing of "John Browns Body" leading to a great climax with some powerful playing. Overall Very good entertainment. Shame about the suit.

What a good 'ole southern boy The clever little intro cameo appearance of Yankee heroes makes the old pot boiler 'Rule Britannia' sound as if the Brits are still lording it over the pesky Americans Fine playing and a clever take on an old favourite. The William Himes 'Civil War Fantasy' - played with accompanying visuals, audio and pyrotechnics delivers its message of hope and all things Americana - from Martin Luther King Junior to Barack Obama with purpose and atmosphere to close.

To think we gave up the Empire for Kentucky Fried Chicken and the dollar bill eh? What a well thought out and cleverly delivered entertainment set this was. Nothing too technically taxing, but musically it all hung together and was played with real brio. This could well put them right back in the mix for a podium finish. After drawing to play number three, we had a long wait to find out the results - the contest still had another seven hours to run, and then the results were not being announced until halfway through the evenings concert.

Where a tie occurs, then the test piece result takes precedence. Following a hectic rehearsal schedule at the start of , the Band headed off to Skegness for the 6th consecutive year to take part in the Butlin's National Mineworkers' Open Brass Band Festival, hoping to improve on our best overall finish of 5th , , and As usual the contest takes place over two days, a set test piece on the Saturday - on this occasion Robert Simpson's Energy - and an entertainment contest on the Sunday.

On Saturday, the Band drew to play number 4 out of The judges had the following to say about our performance: Positive start - I like the broad aspect you give - pity about the over pitched note before 4. Good start, but again some slight slips detract. All under control - with quality sound. Overall a pleasing performance - with attention to markings.

Not really pianissimo in the opening. I miss the character of the music. You settle down and a better approach to 2 is made, and the music has more style and feeling. Tasteful ensembles are noted. Nicely linked into 4 - Trombones not quite!!! Added any time Last 24 hours Last three days Last seven days. Marketed by Boydens - Clacton-On-Sea. Marketed by Paveys Estate Agents - Essex.
