Falling into line with community expectations and government health warnings BBB will temporarily discontinue rehearsals for now starting from 25 March 2020.
Hopefully it won’t be for too long. In the meantime stay safe (and stay apart).
Merry Christmas everyone. We'll be back in the new year.
The Orange Regional Conservatorium’s Big Phatt Jazz Band (right) and Benjamin’s Big Band (left) join forces for an evening full of classics both new and old. Both bands shared the stage playing both alternate and combined pieces.
A fantastic weekend was had by all. See our pics page for links to lots of photos.
"Music is not simply about technical facility – the skill to play very difficult pieces of music. It must also be about enjoyment and personal development. It is also an opportunity for fellowship and can build friendships which can last a lifetime. The better community groups, like Benjamin’s Big Band, successfully manage to promote standards of musicianship at the same time as maintaining a sense of fun. I have enjoyed and appreciated my limited interactions with them. I recognise the difficulty in maintaining a group of this kind year after year and wish them the best.
Merimbula 2017 - a great weekend of mild sunny weather and fantastic music.
The new version of the website is finally online. Content has just been copied from the old/existing site with minimal editing. In the meantime please have a look around and what you think works and what doesn't.
Early days yet but your feedback is essential for Tom and I so Benjamin's can have a shiny new website in the new year.
