The Band are delighted to announce that as from 1st April 2000, a new sponsorship deal takes effect. The Band have secured a deal with the travel and tour company Travelsphere Ltd. Travelsphere are a major force in the escorted tour and holiday market and themselves being based in Market Harborough, the home of the band, the company is an ideal sponsor for them.
The Band will be renamed 'Travelsphere Holidays Band (formerly GUS)' for the present time. Then, when the name of the band is more commonplace the GUS signage will be removed.
Travelsphere's Joint Managing Director, Richard Mackay, said "Travelsphere are well aware of the Band's prestigious history and are delighted to play their part in enabling it to repeat former glories in the years ahead".
Band Manager, Mike Smith said "We are elated with the news. It was important to maintain our local identity, which has now been achieved with Travelsphere's support. We look forward to a long ad mutually beneficial relationship which has started well with our qualification for October's National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
