Tour of Sunshine Coast by New Zealand Veterans Band

From 20 to 27 April, the New Zealand Veterans Band is conducting a short tour of the Sunshine Coast, performing concerts at the Tewantin Noosa RSL, Cooroy RSL, Eumundi Markets and Noosaville Lions Park.  The band will also provide support to the Tewantin ANZAC Day dawn service and parade, and the Tewantin State School ANZAC Assembly.

The New Zealand Veterans Band was formed in response to an official invitation from the Royal Passchendaele Society to support their 2012 ANZAC Day services.  The band was based at Ypres (Belgium) and performed at the dawn service at Polygon Wood, morning service at Messines and the official parade and service at the Menin Gate.  In addition to these ANZAC Day commitments, the band also performed public concerts at Le Quesnoy in Northern France and the famous Zonnebeke Church.

The 2013 New Zealand Veterans Band is a 25 strong brass band, comprising former New Zealand Army regular and territorial force musicians.  Although most of them no longer play professionally, they are all still actively involved in music and brass banding, and between them boast over 1,300 years plying their craft.  The band members are covering all expenses themselves and are driven by a desire to spend some time together with old friends and share their love of music with an appreciative audience.

The New Zealand Veterans Band will perform on 23 April 2013 at Cooroy RSL from 4.45 pm to 5.30 pm; on 24 April at Eumundi Markets from 10.30 am to 11.30 am; on 25 April for ANZAC Day at Tewantin Cenotaph from 9.00am and at Tewantin Noosa RSL from 11.00 am to 11.30am.

Their final concert is on 26 April in Noosaville Lions Park from 4.00 pm to 5.00 pm.  The one hour program will include a combination of traditional and popular pieces, including items with distinctly Australian and New Zealand flavours to acknowledge the ANZAC spirit of their tour.  The concert, billed as “Farewell Concert in the Park” is a great opportunity for people to bring a deck chair, blanket and picnic basket and enjoy listening to music by people who enjoy making it.
