Paul Whitehead

Solo Cornet

Playing history…
Lots of bands but a massive break till 2005 when I joined Blackley.

Fav piece…
Lots, and changes every week but really enjoy Phillip Sparke at the moment.

Worst piece…
Can’t remember the name but the s**t set piece we played Pontins 2009.

Proudest banding moment…
Winning a bottle of whisky at 2010 band dinner dance

Most embarrasing moment…
…starting playing again after 10 year break
…playing sop blackpool 2008 area contest & nearly passing out.

Anything to add…
World record holder, number 171 out of 651 in worlds largest fanfare, Queens Hall, Leeds, 1986.

Also my cornet teacher was friends with Louis Armstrong.
