Mission: We bring the community together to make music

Based in the heart of the Northern Rivers region of NSW (Australia),


is an open community group which provides practice & performance experience for musicians of all ages …

Contact us if you’d like to explore how you might be able to participate as either a player

[Brass/Woodwind/Percussion]) or as an organiser/supporter/sponsor.



We have found a rehearsal venue in Goonellabah, which will be available until we are able to return to SCU rehearsals. (SCU is currently a flood evacuation centre).

Rehearsals will remain at the same time: arrive at 6ish, Monday evenings, for a 6:15 start.

Venue: St Peter’s Anglican Church, 53 Deegan Dr, Goonellabah NSW 2480

Please bring instruments, music, music stand, drip cloth and a can-do attitude and we shall get through this difficult time together.


R E H E A R S A L S ~ 6pm*-7.45pm MONDAYS (during NSW school terms)

* i.e. Setup, tune-up, chat from 6pm for 6.15pm start

STOP PRESS!! Post-lockdown restart of rehearsals means that we have to stick to the ‘Double-Vaxxed only’ rule from 18th Oct 2021 until 1st December 2021, after which no such restrictions will apply … What this is all means is that we still need to do QR checkins, sanitise hands, bring our own clean cloth for water emissions ... but ADDITIONALLY, the Uni wants to know how many of us to expect after-hours, so please text our dear band leader, Ben, on 0432 575 911, or email our secretary, Letitia, at, to let either of them know of your intention to arrive [so that they may in turn advise SCU of total numbers. Thanks in advance for your understanding & cooperation, as we are obliged to follow the conditions outlined by our host, Southern Cross Uni, as well as current State regulations. EITHER WAY! Get practising, ‘coz soon you can be making sweet harmonies with us regardless of your current vax-status or other health concerns.

Can’t stop the music! 🙂
