First Winner of our Facebook Monthly Draw.

On Tuesday 31st January we held the first of our 2012 monthly draws for people who like us on Facebook. Mic Tyler from Drighlington Band was the lucky winner and as well as his choice of piece from the catalogue we are sending a copy of the march “Diamond Jubilee” as a bonus.

To enter the draw all you have to do is visit our Facebook page (follow the button on any page of the website) and “like us” and your name will be entered into each draw this year. As many people from your band can enter, so why not get them to like us as well – it will increase your chances of winning some free music.

First Trade Stand of 2012

MMI Music will be at the GBBA Entertainment Contest on Sunday 5th February. This is the first time the Association has held its contest at the Larruperz Centre in Ross-on-Wye (Grammer School Close HP9 7QD), so we are looking forward to seeing this new venue. On the stand for the first time will be our latest 2012 releases, and (hopefully) the first five new arrangements in our Classic American March Series. See you there.

Facebook Competition

We are now on Facebook. If you click the button on any page of the website this will take you our Facebook page then click on Like. Everyone who likes us will then be entered into our ongoing competition to win a free piece of music (either Brass Band maximum price £20.00 or Concert Band) of your choice. This will be drawn on the last day of each month and the winner announced on the Facebook page. The more members of your band that you get to like us the bigger your chances of some free music.
