    Hi there. Well, our band won the C grade state championships this weekend in Queensland Australia. We want to kick on from here and I wonder if anyone has some great concert ideas for us. Something that is nice to listen to, relevant and fun for the band and audience. I was thinking of a James BOND night or something along those lines. Please let me know what you all think would be a great idea for us to have a go at and I can forward those suggestions to the committee!!

    Thanks so much :clap:

    you could do a night at the musicals or at the films, or music from around the world.

    James Bond night sounds like fun though! You could start with the theme, then find arrangements ofo "You Only Live Twice", and the like.

    Slightly off topic I know, but do you know if anyone has done "You Only Live Twice" for bb? Would love to hear it!

    What part of Qld are you in ? We have done joint concerts with Brisbane Excelsior, we may be able to do the Same with you.

    Thinking about it now, I think I played it as part of a James Bond medley. "Best of Bond" I think it was called. Very good though.

    How about a 'Last night of the Poms'? You could do a night of music with a distictly English feel (Rule Britannia, Hope & Glory, the Horn Pipe etc) But end on some suitably Australian tunes in the second half or towards the end. Sorry but I only know Waltz Matilda and Advance Australia Fair. But you could use the Australasian march and maybe something upbeat from an Ozzie composer, Barrie Gott and Lightwalk spring to mind.

    Just a thought.

    Perhaps Terra Australis? :wink:

    this is a C Grade Band = third section, I think Tera Ausralis might be a bit of a stretch.
