New Life Member Announcement
Sunnybank Brass is thrilled to reveal their newest Life Member - Mr Alan Laing!
Alan joined Sunnybank Brass in 1989 after moving to Brisbane from Hastings in New Zealand. Alan had been playing cornet with the Hastings Citizens Band since he was 10 years old.
Alan has been a playing member of the Sunnybank Brass #1 band, without interruption, since 1989 – a total of 28 years to date!
Not only has he been a committed player but has at various times held the administration positions of Librarian, Public Relations Officer, Secretary, Webmaster and creator of the present Sunnybank website. He is currently Vice President and Hall Manager.
During this time, Alan was also the instigator and manager of the 50th Anniversary Celebrations and two tours to Stanthorpe with the #1 Band. In 2017, Alan also managed the band’s trip to Launceston for the 2017 National Band Championships.
Alan’s commitment to rehearsals and performances is also exemplary and, like everything else he takes on for the band, is carried out quietly, effectively and efficiently.
Alan has given freely of his time and expertise over these years to Sunnybank Brass and is richly deserving of the honour of Life Membership of Sunnybank Brass.
Sunnybank Brass thank you for your dedication to our band and your continuing support, Alan. Congratulations
