Malcolm began playing trumpet and trombone as a teenager and joined his first brass band in 1974 – Altofts and Normanton. He later had five years at Lofthouse Colliery before then moving to Stanley Newmarket.
He left banding altogether for around 20yrs but was tempted back when his young granddaughter fancied trying an instrument and she came along to Lofthouse. Although she decided to pursue other hobbies, there was no escape for Malcolm and he was soon a regular with the senior band.
Position in the band : Bb Bass ( it seems to get heavier every year ! )
