The Melbourne Staff Band of The Salvation Army celebrates its 125th anniversary with a spectacular brass concert with special guests the International Staff Band from London, UK.

Since its formation in 1890, the Melbourne Staff Band has been at the forefront of Salvation Army music making in Australia and beyond. It has distinguished itself in performances in every state of Australia and at many overseas venues. Each year the Melbourne Staff Band visits local Salvation Army centres and churches, and travels to rural centres and other Australian states. It has been an honour for the Melbourne Staff Band to be invited to represent Australia at a number of international Salvation Army events. This has involved extensive concert tours of New Zealand, U.S.A., Canada, Europe and the United Kingdom.

From a suburban street of Melbourne, to a country town bandstand and onto the stage of a famous international concert hall, the Melbourne Staff Band presents its music with the ultimate aim of proclaiming the gospel message of Jesus Christ to all who hear the Band's music.

The International Staff Band, based in London, UK is The Salvation Army’s premier brass band and has a distinguished history that spans over 120 years. It regularly performs in some of London’s prestigious locations including The Royal Albert Hall and Westminster Abbey, and has performed for the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace.

Since its earliest days the International Staff Band has toured overseas, visiting USA, Canada, New Zealand, Japan and widely throughout Europe. This is the Band’s third visit to Australia. The International Staff Band exists, now and since its beginning, to spread the message of Christ primarily through music and aims for the highest standards of Salvation Army Christian music making.

The concert will feature performances by the International Staff Band and the Melbourne Staff Band and will conclude with a grand finale with the two bands combining. Concert goers will be assured of a great evening of superb brass band music.
