They will not get mad at you on my watch! They can disagree with what you say, but I will not have personal attacks. The Flugel is a beautiful instrument. The baritone, euphonium, and trombone all play (mostly) in the range of a tenor voice which is pleasant.
But, IMO, one of the great things about brass bands is that 33 people can play together and make an ever so sweet of a sound. I was seeing my physician today, and he asked about my shirt (I own about 10 All Brass Radio polo shirts) and I told him about the station.
Only in brass banding can 33 people play a test piece, a classical piece, a pop piece, a march, folk songs, and traditional bandstand tunes. What a plethora! Brass banding is very unique.
