Thank you to the Hunter Regional Band Association members who assisted with the event. Also, a big thanks to the University of Newcastle Conservatorium for the use of their percussion instruments and also for the use of their wonderful venue. The event would not be possible without the Create NSW funding grant, so thank you for making this available.
Thank you to both Coast Music Aus. and Sax and Woodwind for featuring trade stands at this year’s event and for their support.
A special thanks to Newcastle PCYC Brass Band for their efforts in hosting the event. It ran smoothly and all the participating bands had a place to leave their gear.
And, last but not least, thanks to everyone who attended this year’s event. We hope you enjoyed the entertainment.
