About Us

The City of Glen Eira Band is a non competing, non-profit musical group who pursue the learning and playing of music without the politics and pressures of stressful competition. We concentrate on a positive social atmosphere within our multicultural group and enjoy the rewards of our serious attitude towards music.

Our focus is as a brass band, and we aim to provide a platform for brass and percussion players to practice and improve their musical skills in the company of other musicians. To this end, we have a qualified Musical Director who trains the band to improve its musical skills.

We love to have new members join and are open to all ages, we have members as young as 14 and as experienced as 80.

Often we provide musical entertainment for community groups, such as retirement villages, hospitals and local schools. If you are a community group who would like for us to come and play for you, or you would like to join us please go to our ‘Contact Us‘ page.

The City of Glen Eira Band is most grateful for the financial assistance provided by the City of Glen Eira Council. 

News Letter

We have been able to start 2016 back in our own band room and although all is not settled yet, we are starting to get used to the changes to our home.  I must thank the Bayside Band for their hospitality over the past five months and hope that they enjoyed the extra instrumentation at our combined practices.  We have started off the year with a bang and will have our 4th gig on Sunday the 20th of March at Allnutt park.  I also have to thank our own members for their patience during the disruption and in particular, thank Linda and Stuart for taking the Academy into their own  home.  Reuben has started teaching a mature student at the band room and we hope that this goes well.  To our own members and those from Bayside, I wish you all the best for 2016.
