Boarshurst Silver Band are pleased to announce the signing of Keith Hope on Bb Bass.
With a wealth of musical experience (not just brass) Keith is a welcome addition to both the band and the bass section.
Keith started banding quite late in life after initially taking up the Bass Guitar, which he has played for almost 50 years! He started banding with Honley band and later Friendly Band. But, after being offered a seat at Lindley Band, he stayed there for 4 years before finally venturing back into playing his Bass Guitar.
After seeing Boarshurst’s advertisement for a Bb Bass player Keith gave the band’s MD, James Garlick, a call and came to watch the band at their recent 165th Anniversary/Reunion. He must have been impressed because he accepted a seat that very night and is looking forward to progressing with the band.
