Performances


Classics Series

In 2004 it was proposed that the band embark on a new venture: an intimate concert of classical works featuring the compositions of Giuseppe Verdi. This presentation was well received by the audience who had come together at Yalumba Winery’s Upper Barrel Hall, and prompted demand for more concerts in the same vein. Thus the band has turned the concept into an annual event with themes including The Great Composers, Classic Broadway, and From Russia With Love.

In an effort to showcase local venues and wineries, the Classics Concerts have also been held at Torbreck, Rolf Binder, AP John Coopers, and in 2017 will be presented at the bluestone Chateau Tanunda. For information, email classics@tanundatownband.com.

Corporate & Community

Tanunda Town Band is available for bookings for your event or function. We specialise in light-entertainment and German style “Oom-Pah” music, but can, by negotiation, produce a show with vocalists, soloists, and even a “Melodienacht Lite” experience. TTB was the recording band for the hit movie Breaker Morant and The Reunion, and also appeared on screen during Breaker Morant.
