Following a six month 'caretaker role', Bob was delighted to be appointed MD after the band’s win at the 2012 Area contest. Since then the band has gone from strength to strength with 29 brass and 4 percussion players. Bob’s philosophy is to have fun and work hard at challenging repertoire within a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere.
Bob enjoyed a long playing career on soprano cornet, cornet and flugel horn with many of the Championship bands in the Midlands and London. Recently switching to tenor horn, Bob still guests for many bands including Jackfield (Telford) and Virtuosi GUS. Bob also makes guest appearances as a conductor with many Midlands bands.
Bob is delighted to be in his third year as Daventry Brass Musical Director. He is very much looking forward to working with the band in its future concert and competition appearances.
