Following the passing of our long-time pianist Tim Wilby the band is looking for a good pianist to join the band on a regular basis.  We rehearse regularly in Chorley and perform regularly.  Initially we would arrange for you to cover a month's worth of rehearsals and a concert in order that you can evaluate us, and we you without any big commitment from either side. Please contact Ian using the contact page to discuss possibilities.
