Key Lock Changes

The band has said a fond farewell to repiano cornet player Chris Lock!

Travelling difficulties have meant that Chris has had to stand down from his position after eleven years of outstanding commitment. Chris joined the band on Solo Cornet in 2004 from Gresley Band where he played principal cornet and has been an intergral part of the band's growth over the years.

Chris now joins Newhall Band on principal cornet which is much closer to his home and also gives him the opportunity to play alongside old friends, in particular Pete Woodings.

"Chris will be missed at Derwent and the band wish him the very best and will welcome him whenever the chance arises." Musical Director, Keith Leonard

Replacing Chris on Repiano Cornet is Dan Hudson, former Solo Cornet player with the Championship Section Leicestership Co-op Snibston Band.  More details on Dan to follow.

We wish Chris all the very best in the future and of course give a very warm welcome to Dan - we hope your stay is a long and enjoyable one!
