The Bicycle Band: Picturing Canterbury

The Bicycle Band of 1898 claimed to be the only one of its type in the world. There was a brief recreation in 2010 at the Ellerslie Flower Show. In NZ Music Month why not check out some mighty Kiwi Brass bands from our libraries.

NZOnScreen reminds us how much brass bands and highland pipe bands provided the soundtrack to major civic events and  film reels in this great celebration of VE Day.
Weekly Review No. 195 - New Zealand Celebrates VE Day

For the real live feel of a brass band get along to Hornby Library on Saturday May 11 at 10.45am to hear the New Zealand Army Band which is the creme de la creme of bands.
