2nd Bb Bass

Keith Hope

I started brass banding somewhat later in life; after playing the bass guitar for around 50 years, the obvious brass instrument was the Bb Bass.

My playing career started with the Yorkshire Traction Honley Band and then I moved on to The Lindley Band.

I eventually joined the Boarshurst family in 2015 and I’ve never looked back.

My favourite march would have to be ‘The President’, and as for test pieces, ‘Music of a Legacy’ would have to be one of my favourites.
