We are sorry to say goodbye to Andy Short, who is leaving us to go to University. We wish you well Andy.
Andy has been a member of the band for 9 years and has played in various bands at school and the East Hampshire Schools Brass Band. When he went to college he played in the Jazz Band and Big Band. When he left college he stopped playing for a few years, and then decided he wished to resurrect his playing and joined Friary Guildford Band on Eb Bass. After a few years a vacancy arose on 2nd baritone, which he filled, and felt more suited to this instrument, also having less to carry around! He subsequently joined Alder Valley Brass on baritone.
