New Signings

Ahead of attending the Scottish Open later this month, Tongwynlais Temperance Band are pleased to announce a number of new signings.

On 3rd Cornet we’d like to welcome Josh Ruck, Huw Evans on 2nd Euphonium, Dafydd Thomas on 2nd trombone with Shaun Rigby in the back of the band on percussion.

Joining on Bb Bass we’d also like to extend a warm Kon’nichiwa and Yokoso to Kazu Kouno an international student who joins us from Japan studying at the Welsh College of Music & Drama.

Chris Howley will be leading the cornet section on Principal and on repiano we welcome back Gareth Hann who replaces Vicky Kennedy who’s moved up to the front row bench.

“These new signings further strengthen the band and with Phil Harper at the helm, the band are looking forward to making the trip to Scotland to represent Wales at this great contest.”  (Jason Bevan, Chairman).

As well as preparing for the Scottish Open, the band are making final preparations for the move to their new band room.  When complete with rehearsal and recording facilities the band will once again have a permanent home and are looking forward to moving in over the Christmas period.
