Brad Sturgess

Instrument   Eb Bass
Member Since 1999
Early Years
Encouraged by Al Dunford to start playing again after a gap of 10ish years since playing in the school band, I remember waiting outside the band room with Andy on our first night, almost turning back home as we thought the band were way too good and we would show ourselves up! (The band at this point were right at the bottom of the 4th section!)
Previous Bands
I have depped for various bands including Woodfalls tour to Switzerland in 2004, but always played for Shrewton. More recently I have moved on to Eb bass and been confronted with quavers and semi-quavers and even occasionally, the melody!
Favourite Music
Favourite band music: Young Amadeus! and Imperfect Piece! (ha, ha, ha!)
