    not after a marathon answer... just a quickie

    anyone know who it is?

    I'm doing a presentation about cultural transplantation in Melbourne and looking into the British immigrants during the gold rush of the 1850s... wondering if any brass bands were established during this time

    I've found a very readable history of banding in Australia here

    Glad to help ... I noticed P.4 briefly covered the Goldrush and mentioned band names as well! :cool::tup
