2019. What a year! And, there is still more to come, as the band heads into the final 'Brass in the Park' themed Christmas Concerts with the City of Darwin.

We thought that we would have a quick look at the year in review for the Darwin City Brass Band. Perhaps an opportunity to post some images or video's that have not previously seen the light of day, but an opportunity for the band to look at the year in review. 

Australia Day

Airport Tavern 12019 kicked off nice and early for the band. An invitation from the Airport Tavern with an invite to have the band perform for Australia Day. This meant that the band had to convene slightly earlier for rehearsal and for some, 'tongue in cheek', this meant that the instruments came of their cases a few weeks earlier than what would have ordinarily happened. This was an enjoyable event and our first performance for 2019, all on a monsoonal afternoon jam packed hard core Australiana. Well done to Musical Director Ron Roberts, Deputy Musical Director/Band Sergeant Henry May, vocalists Sand Williams and Kat Lee, as well as members of the band.

International Womans Day Walk

On Saturday the 9th of March, the band participated in the International Women's Day Walk in Darwin City including some great bass drum work by Hollie from our percussion section in what was her first official play-out with the band. No pressure Hollie!

Once again the band was honoured to be involved and continuing the long tradition of a brass band marching for the citizens and service personnel of Darwin and surrounds. But this year there was a twist, with the band notably short in the 'bang crash' department.

A combination of circumstances indicated the very real prospect of the band marching without any percussionists this year, most notably side drummers. So, we took to print with an article in the NT News, and this was quickly picked up by ABC Radio, who subsequently interviewed MD Ron Roberts. (Listen here) 

Brass In the Park Twilight Series. 

In his annual report, outgoing President Andrew Stone spoke of the importance of the 'Brass In the Park Twilight Series'. Andrew said;

'The mid-year ‘Brass In the Park’ concert series saw the band perform on 4 occasions through May and June in key parks and reserve’s around the City. The City of Darwin was delighted with the final outcome of these concerts, and they now form the catalyst for more ‘Brass In The Park’ styled concerts in just a few weeks’ this time with a distinct Christmas flavour'

The Brass In Park Concert series was a huge commitment for the band members, and proved ultimately highly successful. There were some wonderful pictures captured as the band performed into the beautiful dry season evenings. This was an opportunity for the band to take 'live' music into the community, and it all dove tailed nicely into the City of Darwin's key objective of bring community events and performances into the City's park and reserves. Highlights, well, there were many. We think the following image best sums up the success for Brass in the Park.

On Tuesday 26th of November, members of the Darwin City Brass Band were invited to assist the Australian Boarder Force welcome the offshore patrol vessel ICG Ship (ICGS) Shaurya.

At 105 metres in length and with a crew of 110 officers and sailors, the ICGS Shaurya is one of the latest generation offshore patrol vessels built by India to significantly bolster its coast guard fleet in the wake of the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

The Darwin City Brass Band were delighted to be involved in providing music, with a 'nautical theme' at the formal welcoming event held at Fort Hill Wharf.
