Royal Australian Navy Band (Melbourne) will perform at Moama Bowling Club on Thursday night.

THE Royal Australian Navy Band Melbourne will be performing at Moama Bowling Club on Thursday.

And all proceeds from this one-off concert will go to Legacy to enable it to continue the vital work it does with the families of Australian servicemen and women.

The 30-piece band will present a range of music, with the show starting at 7pm.

Tickets are $10 and Moama Bowling Club sales and marketing manager George Santos said 100 per cent of the takings will be forwarded to Legacy.

“This is the first time in many years the band has taken on a regional tour and we are delighted; and excited, Echuca-Moama is one of the few locations to host the show,” Mr Santos said.

“This will be a rare opportunity for people to witness one of Australia’s finest military bands in concert,” he said.

“Under the direction of Lieutenant Andrew Stokes, RAN, the band will present a wide variety of music ranging from marches, traditional concert band and big band repertoire right through to contemporary modern day music.

“In a word, this band is versatile.”

The Royal Australian Navy Band is one of Australia’s premier military ensembles. Its history can be linked to the various bands of the colonial naval forces, which were in existence before Federation, and to the Commonwealth Naval Force established in 1901.

Throughout its history the band has performed for thousands of audiences within Australia around the world and in operational areas and today continues a proud tradition of providing support for the Royal Australian Navy.”

Tickets are available direct from customer service at Moama Bowling Club or by phoning 1800 806 777.
