Group Description

Some of us were taught by John at Junior School, a lot of us at Lord Lawson, the majority of us by Bruce at Lord Lawson. Missing half lessons (and in some cases full lessons if it was french) in First and Second Year to go and blow down a curly bit of metal to get your test 1 and then get your name and date you passed tests 1-4 written in pencil on a big blue chart ouside Mr.Webb's room. This forum is a tribute to John Webb who sadly passed away in 1996 and Bruce Wigham who we sadly lost in 2010. Lord Lawson Brass Band was one of the best in the country and won various competitions, but then mysteriously stopped when I joined in 1986. It made it's own L.P's (That yellow one and that black and white one we all saw perched on top of Mr Wigham's blackboard) under the expert guidance of Mr. Bruce Wigham. It also made tapes which were recorded by a bloke in a raincoat 6 miles away with a dictaphone and a megaphone to enhance the 'digital' sound quality.

As a bit of an add-on to Freinds Reunited, let's have your memories, tributes, old photo's, top ten band tunes, what it was REALLY like to be a 3rd cornet, places to shove a mute, my instrument was bigger than yours etc... Don't forget to add your profile to the HALL OF FAME in the database link on the left. Hopefully word will spread and some old mates will get in touch.

IF YOU MISS ONE DAY'S PRACTICE, YOU KNOW
IF YOU MISS TWO DAY'S PRACTICE, YOUR FRIENDS KNOW
IF YOU MISS THREE DAY'S PRACTICE, THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS!

I don't know how long you've missed since you left the band but shouldn't I know about it by now?
