Back to the Bandroom

Introduction
2015 sees the 30th anniversary of one of my favourite films and the biggest movie hit of 1985 - 'Back to the Future'.

As a salute to the movie and a tribute to Salvation Army music making, cordnermusic.com will be taking you 'back to the bandroom' throughout 2015 as we salute the conductors and principal players of Staff Bands around the Salvation Army world.  

Starting in January 2015, you will find on this page a featured instrument section and photos of Staff Band members as they looked in 1985.  Kicking us off first are the Soprano Cornet players of the world... yes friends, photos of 7 Soprano players will appear here soon. In February it will be....well, you'll have to wait and see!

We will no doubt smile and reminisce at some of the photos, but hopefully they will afford us opportunity to celebrate the Staff Bands of the Salvation Army, their personnel and what represents hundreds of years service at the highest level.
