Retired Inspector Dave Woollam, was appointed as Musical Director back in June 2007.
In many respects it has been a return to his roots. Dave played Tenor Horn with the band as a teenager back in 1975. His father John(who was also a Cheshire Police Officer) introduced him to the band and he never looked back.
15 very happy years followed during which he met his future wife Rachel (who incidentally plays principal Cornet with the band).
He then spent 14 happy and rewarding years at the Robert's Bakery band predominantly on Solo Euphonium followed by two very challenging years as Solo Euphonium with Warrington based Wire Brass.
His first experience
with the baton was in 2000 as MD of the South Cheshire Based Lions Youth
In 2010 Dave "retired"
as a Police Officer after 32 years service but was pleased to remain
as Musical director of the Band. Always a committed musician he is proud
to be the Musical
Director of the Band.
In the 10 years since taking up the baton the band have been promoted to First section ( from Jan 2018)and in doing so qualified for three National Championship finals. They have also made highly successful concert appearances in Germany during 2010,2012 & 13, Austria in 2016 and Germany again in 2017.
In recent times the band, and its Corps of drums have considerably raised their profile and Dave is extremely proud of his continued association with Cheshire Constabulary. He is looking forward to many more years working with the band.
