Botany Bay Band


We are a group of musicians who come together because we love music. Age and ability are not a barrier for this community concert band, which has had members from ages 8 to 80. Music difficulty ranges from beginner to advanced, but is normally intermediate level, and the band is extremely relaxed and encouraging.

Our current conductor is the excellent musician Andrew Blenkinsopp.

The Botany Bay Band rehearses at the Alf Kay Eastlakes Community Hall, 2 Florence Avenue (near Evans Avenue), Eastlakes, in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs between 7:10 PM and 9:00 PM on Wednesday night.

The band has a selection of instruments which are lent to players at no cost. We perform at Bayside Council citizenship ceremonies, Christmas Carols, and other community events.

If you are interested in joining the band, contact us on Facebook, by Gmail (botanyband), or just drop by a rehearsal and have a listen.
