    Brass Bands don't have saxophones in.

    Will do! Some Yorkshire folk are a bit protective of their traditional brass band format

    I'm enjoying the new Soul Rebels Brass Band CD 'Unlock Your Mind' its very good!

    Not at all, but a name suggests a type of music. I bet if people went to see a Black Dyke Symphony Orchestra they'd expect to see a few strings? Your band is entertaining and has some good musicians, but it is not a Brass Band any more than Grimethorpe Colliery Band is a Jazz Band.

    Brass Band or not, it makes people want to dance! Is it not the most important here?

    It's a brass band in the style of the traditional New Orleans brass bands. I suppose saxamophones are made of brass...

    The definition and instrumentation of a brass band in the village of Grimethorpe is different to the definition of a brass band in New Orleans. They are all brass bands ( although ones with a tenor sax may not be able to register with the Yorkshire Brass Band Association). Brass bands have existed in Nola for just about as long as they have existed in the Yorkshire Dales!

    Many years ago I heard Grimethorpe Brass Band attempt to play jazz under the baton of W. Hogarth Lear. So I know that Grimethorpe Colliery Band are not a jazz band. However they are not a Colliery band as the pit closed many years ago! I think we are splitting hairs here! The concept of the Black Dyke Symphony Orchestra sounds very exciting

    There is always at least one crazy old lady dancing at any live music event, even in the UK, eh?
