We are a community band and have no official application process. You are welcome to join us during rehearsal with no obligation to sign up immediately, Feel free to sit in for a few weeks to see if we are a good fit.
We rehearse from 7.15pm (for 7.30pm start) on TUESDAY nights at the Payneham Senior Citizens Over 50s Club, 54 Coorara Avenue, Payneham South SA. Rehearsals run to 9.30pm with a break for supper at 8.30 pm.
Being a community band, we hold three community performances each year, which are entry by gold coin donation, and then endeavour to book some fun, paying gigs to help cover the bills. We also hold one larger performance per year to showcase the band as well as fundraising to cover the costs of running the band. We are not a competition band, however we support and encourage members to participate in the Playford's 3+ Ensemble Competition held in March every year.
Check out our event calendar for further insight into the gigs we undertake.
Fees per calendar year are:
full paying member - $90
concession - $75
If you decided to become a member of the band, the fee will be pro rata based on the time of year you sign up.
