The band travelled to a new venue in Cardiff for the first Welsh League contest of the year. Despite the very 'direct' acoustic and a clippier performance than we would have liked, we retained our title.
A strong performance of 'Brass Metamorphosis' earned the band a 7th place finish from 16 at the Riviera Centre in Torquay.
The band travelled to Merthyr for a second time in 2017 to compete in the First Section at the SEWBBA Set Test Piece contest, where they took First Prize and Best Instrumentalist again!

The band travelled to Merthyr to compete in the First Section at the SEWBBA Own Choice contest, where they took First Prize and Best Instrumentalist.
Playing 9th from 11 at about 6pm in the evening, the band came off stage feeling they could have done better and knowing that a poor result could see them relegated. However, as the results came in, the band were placed 8th ensuring safety in the First Section for another year..
