  Lloyd Shipp is looking forward to meeting up with old and new friends

After a 14 week hiatus due to the Coronavirus pandemic the team at Musicwearetc is getting ready to return to full time production once again to meet the needs of players, bands and organisations.

Testing

Speaking to 4BR Managing Director Lloyd Shipp said: "It's been incredibly testing time is so many ways — and one which I hope everyone has been able to come through safely.

We've been really humbled by the support that has been shown to us from existing and potential customers — and I'm delighted to say that we will be back busier than ever when restrictions and guidelines allow to do so.

A few of our team have been involved in various virtual ensembles and we know that musical life is going to be very different for some time to come, but we are determined to play our part in helping bands return."

What I've really missed is the interaction between ourselves and our customers — talking about the hobby we love and how we all want it to flourishLoydd Shipp

Love

Lloyd added: "What I've really missed is the interaction between ourselves and our customers — talking about the hobby we love and how we all want it to flourish.

I'm sure that will occur again, but for now we have to be patient, careful and understanding — and keep practising of course. Musicwearetc can't wait to get back to work, and we can't wait to hear brass bands performing once again."
