Band’s planning a huge show

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

A showcase of music from a range of eras will be presented by the Edward River Concert Band on Monday night.

The end of year concert, which doubles as a fundraiser for the band, will be held at the Deniliquin RSL Club from 7.30pm.

Musical director Richard Sievers said the band would be joined by a few guests to present an evening of traditional and modern music.

‘‘Sing Australia will perform a few songs with the band, and also on their own,’’ Mr Sievers said.

‘‘We’ll also have a few surprise guests, including singers who will be accompanied by the band and some solo musicians.

‘‘The program is varied so we can celebrate the talents of both our long term members, and the newer members — many of whom are quite young.

‘‘We’ll perform traditional items like marches and war time classics, and maybe some Rolling Stones and a few modern songs too.

‘‘All proceeds from the evening will go back in to the band, to pay for uniforms, musical instruments or any other equipment we might need.’’

Tickets are $10 for an adult or $20 for a family.
