Calling for expressions of interest – Massed Band for Equality

The VBL has been contacted by a number of bands and individuals wishing to put together an event to support Marriage Equality.

Due to this feedback and interest, a massed band section has been scheduled as part of the Bandstand Sunday event. The performance time is 2.15 – 3.00pm

This massed band is open to all members of the banding community. Music will be provided, bands members who wish to be involved only need to turn up in band uniform and bring their instrument.

This is an optional event, no band or individual band member will be forced to be involved. It will have no impact on the rest of the Bandstand Sunday event.

Bands who are already performing at Bandstand Sunday are welcome to also be involved in the massed band event.

This massed band is simply an opportunity for those who wish to show their support. It is not intended to imply affiliation or endorsement of any political party.

Should you wish to take part, please email your name, instrument and part preference to president@vbl.org.au by Friday October 13th.
