ANZAC Day Commemorative Video
21 April 2020
Every ANZAC Day, Sunnybank Brass would normally be participating in our local Sunnybank and Brisbane City ANZAC Day commemorative services and parades, to honour and commemorate the ANZACs, the fallen and the currently serving. As we all know, Australia is in mandated isolation this ANZAC Day due to COVID-19 and we are unable to gather together at our usual ceremonies in our communities across Australia.
This commemorative video is our virtual tribute to the ANZACs, to those who served, those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our way of life, and those who are still serving for our great nation. COVID-19 might have put a stop to our parades and services this year, but the ANZAC Spirit lives on in all of us.
We are also encouraging our players to #lightupthedawn this ANZAC Day and sound The Last Post on their driveways at 6am.
We may not be able to stand together as we usually would, but we can still stand united in spirit.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Lest We Forget ♥ ♥

An absolutely POSITIVE NOTE for Sunnybank Brass!!!
On Monday 23 March 2020, we received the FANTASTIC news that the band has been successful in an application for funding to purchase musical instruments and equipment, receiving a grant for $30,266.06!
So, while Sunnybank Brass may have been hitting some low notes this month with our gigs being cancelled and having to suspend our own rehearsals during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, we will be coming back to some FANTASTIC new musical instruments including percussion and some FANTASTIC new equipment such as new chairs, new stands and new orchestra lights.
Sunnybank and District Brass Band thanks the Gambling Community Benefit Fund for making this possible.
