Top brass sounds magic

Terrific trio: Neville Drummond (left) and Bruce Jarrett (right) of South Gippsland Shire Brass Band with Fred Heesh of Wonthaggi Citizens Band.

MUSICIANS from across Gippsland came together for the annual brass band fun day on Sunday.
Held at Leongatha’s Dakers Centre, the event was hosted by the South Gippsland Shire Brass Band as part of the group’s 120th anniversary celebrations.
Wonthaggi Citizens Band joined in the concert, along with representatives of Warragul Municipal Band, Latrobe City Brass Band and Sale City Brass Band.
Hey Jude, Waltzing Matilda, MacArthur Park and Rock Around the Clock were among the favourites played to a crowd of mixed ages during the afternoon concert.
The South Gippsland Shire Brass Band’s next major gig is the 120th birthday concert on Saturday, August 18 at Leongatha Memorial Hall. Tickets are now available at Swanlee Crafts, Bair Street, Leongatha.
