David Steele

Began playing at the age of 9 at Templemore Primary School, Belfast, where I played cornet, then tenor horn, and finally baritone. Whilst still at Primary School, the band competed at the prestigious Kerkade Music Festival in Holland, and were awarded second prize. Templemore became regular competitors at Belle Vue, Manchester, graduating through senior cup, grand shield to finally the British Open, where they were prize winners on one special occasion. Joined ABBB in the 1990’s, along with my wife Pat, and have played Eb bass since then.
