City of Ballarat Municipal Brass Band

Those magnificent men and women in their almost-flying machine.

Now over 125 years old, and a popular fixture at Meredith since 2005. Starting with a march through the campsite, incorporating the Bugle Corp, then onto stage for a romp through old and new hits like Gonna Fly Now (Rocky theme), Bob The Builder, maybe something from Queen and a contemporary hit or two.

Their membership has maintained the status quo and still sits around the 30 mark, with an almost even distribution of male and female members.

In 2013 the band took out first place in their grade at the Victorian Brass Band Championships.

Here is some footage of them from 2008:
