Hi Loyal Viewers,
I hope you’ve been having a spectacular year so far. It is wonderful to see (for the most part) bands around the world up and in action and our performing for our adoring publics. Team Brassbanned is excited to start doing more regular live streams – and very much looking forward to bringing you a live-in-person New Zealand Brass Band Championships in July.
This weekend, our intrepid team of one will be heading to Scotch College in Melbourne to bring you scintillating vision and audio of the mighty Victoria Brass in concert, with the wonderful guest soloist Dave Elton, and backup superstar guest corners Mark Fitzpatrick and Marcus Salone.
The concert will start at 7:30pm (Melbourne time) on Saturday May 21. Much better than election viewing!
