Les Zoings are Looking for Brass, Percussion and Wind players. Most of our music is scored, but you can learn the set as you like, whatever works best for you. Must be happy to march and play, but can use a lyre with whatever notes. Dressing up is very important. We rehearse most weeks in South East London and play whenever we can.  Also we like to collaborate with other street acts, dancers etc.                                                                                          Email     leszoings@hotmail.co.uk      or          leave message on Facebook.
