Fundraising: A fundraising concert will be held on July 2.

The Royal Australian Navy Band Sydney will perform at a fundraising concert to aid the Rebuild Pappinbarra Appeal in July.

The event is on at the Laurieton United Services Club.

The navy band will perform along the Hastings Concert band in support of the appeal.

In February 2017, the Pappinbarra Valley experienced catastrophic fire conditions which ripped through homes, sheds and whole farms. The Rebuild Pappinbarra Appeal is in support of the owners of these properties that have suffered significant damage.

The afternoon will showcase a variety of wind band music, including traditional marches and concert band music to popular tunes. 

The Sydney Band has a strong national and international focus and maintains versatile music capabilities, specialising in the delivery of ceremonial music, traditional and contemporary wind music, and popular music products.

In recent years members of the Sydney and Melbourne Bands have participated in a number of overseas deployments including to the Middle East, Turkey (Gallipoli), Timor Leste and the Solomon Islands; to locations all around the world aboard Royal Australian Navy ships; and to musical gatherings such as military tattoos in Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, China, Hong Kong and the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Scotland.

Bring the family along to this special afternoon and enjoy a musical journey by the Royal Australian Navy Band and Hastings Concert Band.

The Royal Australian Navy Band and Hastings Concert Band will perform on July 2 at Laurieton United Services Club from 4pm. It is a gold coin donation entry. For more information contact the club on 6559 9110.
