Meet the Band - Some of Our Guest Players
Nichola Conabeare - Bb Trombone
I started learning to play with St Swithun’s Band in Bridport in 1969 and then joined Honiton Band in 1970. I
continued to play for both bands for about 10 years. I started on cornet, moved onto flugel horn and I now play
1st tenor trombone. I have a daughter who used to play Eb bass, but unfortunately is no longer banding. I had
to leave the band in November 2007, as I relocated to Bristol, following promotion at work. I was very sad to
make the move, but return to play with the band at their engagements when possible.
Rod Salter - Bb Trombone
Rod comes along and helps us whenever he's down this way on holiday. He now lives in Derbyshire and plays
for both Long Easton Silver Prize Band and Melbourne Town Band.
