Brassbanned is asking you to pay what you consider to be a fair amount for watching the live stream of the New Zealand Brass Band Championships. If you think the work we do is terrible, no donation needed. If you think it’s average – maybe give us $5. If you think it’s great – how about $20?
The choice is yours! But remember – if you don’t donate anything, we might not ever stream anything again.
The Brassbanned team is usually unpaid, donating and volunteering our time. We work with organising committees, contest administrators and concert promoters to live stream events and hopefully not be too out of pocket. We also try to sell some fun merchandise to help cover our costs. In the past, we would sometimes sell ‘Pay Per View’ access to live streams. We have decided that it’s better to have payments as an optional (but morally responsible) ‘Pay what you think it’s worth’.
While we love your support, please remember we are not a registered charity
All money that is made by Brassbanned is re-invested back into the company. We would love to keep getting across to the UK and Europe (and Australia and NZ) to cover some big competitions – if we can raise enough money, we might even be able to get there under our own steam. All money that comes in is used to cover travel costs, server and platform costs, new (and improved) cameras and microphones – the list goes on!
