Sunday Bandstand 2 June 2019

Yorkshire Imperial Band, also known as Yorkshire Imperial Urquhart Travel Band (from sponsors David Urquhart Travel), and the Yorkshire Imps, is a brass band from West Yorkshire. Other names used have included Yorkshire Imperial Metals Band, IMI Yorkshire Imperial Band and DUT Yorkshire Imperial Band. 

Formed in the 1930s as the Yorkshire Copper Works Band based at Yorkshire Copper Works in Leeds, and renamed when Yorkshire Imperial Metals was created in 1958 (Yorkshire Copper Works and ICI Metals Division). 
Rothwell Temperance Band (est 1881), when drinkers and non-drinkers at Rothwell Model Band, (est 1841) split into two bands the other being the Rothwell Old Band. 

In 1999 as Wallace Arnold (Rothwell) Band, reflecting sponsorship by a local coach operator. The then "B" band retained the name Rothwell Temperance Band and still exists. 

2000 Wallace Arnold (Rothwell) Band merged with the Yorkshire Imperial Band and for some time the Yorkshire Imperial DUT (Rothwell) Band.

The band is featured on this week's show with a solo Vale Brilliante from the principal cornet player in 1970 Graham Walker. This illustrates just on of his many top class performances.
