Kumeu Vintage Brass is a brass band of 40 members, who have played in over 80 Brass Bands in New Zealand, Australia, and England. They are a registered charity and have been active within the community for 70 years. The band plays a wide range of music from classical to pop, marches to hymns.

Henderson has hosted this event for many years, gathering the top brass bands from across Auckland. This form of music dates back through the old New Orleans jazz bands, military marching bands and a close association with coal mining communities at the turn of the century.

It has a special place in many people's hearts as this music has crossed so many generations, cultures and countries - and nothing else sounds like the full, rich sound of a brass band. Come spend a sunny afternoon in the beautiful Falls Park and take in some timeless tunes.

Auckland's summer, sorted.
