Moreland City Band, Melbourne, Australia, is an innovative community band. We initiated the 'Phoenix Project' where we have moved away from the traditional brass band model to perform a hip, funky, multicultural repertoire that reflects the vibe of the Moreland Community. At the helm of the band is master jazz trumpeter and composer Scott Tinkler who works weekly with the band. Moreland City Band is also honoured to have the great Australian classical composer Peter Sculthorpe as its patron. He is another inspirational figure for players as we strive to provide high quality community music in Moreland.
