Pre-Nationals Interview: Box Hill City Band


Loyal Viewers,

In another (not unexpected) first for Brassbanned, I’m pleased to let you know that we have once again trumped the ABC 7:30 Report. Later on tonight, they will be airing a story about Box Hill City Band – no doubt after hearing of the band’s 2012 interview with Brassbanned.

Well, in a little something we like to call the ‘Brassbanned 6:30 Report’ – we are pleased to bring you an exclusive interview with Michael Wells and John Kelly from Box Hill City Band. Michael, a new-comer to Australian banding talks about his move from the UK, the idea of a ‘Solo Baritone’, and the exciting new direction of the Box Hill Academy Brass – Box Hill’s brand new junior program.

John talks to us about the 2014 marking the bands’ 125th year – and their hopes for victory on the stage and on the street march.

Best of luck to everyone at Box Hill Band for the competition, Brassbanned (and no doubt all you Loyal Viewers) wish them all the best and hope they have a whole lot of fun in Brisbane!
