joly1Principal Euphonium

Jolyon Stead

Hailing from the dark side (aka Slaithwaite) Jo has played with a number of top bands, including a 4 year stint with the Royal Artillery Orchestra. . When not involved in highly varied (occasionally abstract) musical projects he is a leading regional toilet consultant. He is also a very dangerous driver.

Banding highlight: Drighlington working mens club, September 14th, 1987.

Favourite food: Kebabs, chicken tikka, fish & chips – all in close succession (Note: Many bandsmen drink their way round Whit Friday – Jo eats his way round).

Favourite instrument: Botswanan nose flute.
