Team Brassbanned will be live all weekend from the 2023 NSW Band Championships! We are excited to hear all the bands – and thrilled to see such a large number of concert bands coming along. We will be live from two halls simultaneously. This page will present ‘Hall 1’ – which will have all of the concert bands. Hall 2 (on a different page) will have all the brass bands, and a few concert bands as well.
