I don't, whenever the pit closed, or the village hall/club was shut. I don't remember exactly where we rehearsed in the village or how they came to be the B N band and move to Cramlinton. Those dates are accurate (probably) so 74-76 but the workers at the factory objected, loudly, to the band rehearsing at the far end of their canteen and my mum gave up and dad and I changed bands. I've no idea how long the band survived after that. The Cuthbertsons and others went to Ellington Colliery, some to Ashington and others Lynemouth bands.

I do remember the ties were an awful yellow polyester and there was no budget to provide a jacket for me hence my pullover with badge sewn on in my profile pic (with mother) the hats were Netherton's.
