2015 – A Brass Band Odyssey

Hello to our legions of faithful followers,

It’s been a fun year so far for the band, and there are some big plans for the next few months, so it’s time for a little update to keep you in the loop.

So far this year we’ve played at the Australia Day celebrations at Lake Wendouree, and made our regular appearances at the Begonia Festival and the Ballan Street Festival. Thanks to everyone who has come out to listen and support the band.

April is a big month for us, with two important events to mark ANZAC Day. In May we’ll be on the balcony at the George Hotel once again for Heritage Weekend. Check our calendar page for details and times for all upcoming events.

In other news, our band room is undergoing a major renovation at the moment, so we’re practicing at the Memorial Band Room in Barkly Street for the next month or two. Also, our new uniforms are on the way, so expect to see a really different look for the band soon.

Thanks for checking in to the web site, and we hope to see you soon at one of our gigs!
