Waitakere Auckland Brass was established in 1923 as the New Lynn Citizens Band. The Band has always been at the forefront of brass band activity, performing around New Zealand and embarking on international tours to the UK, China and more.

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.
