CASTERTON VICE REGAL BAND
Telephone: Michael McNamara 0408 172 185
The Casterton Vice Regal band was formed over 140 years ago. It has been an integral part of the Casterton community all that time, farewelling the men that enlisted for war service and welcoming troops home. They have played at every Anzac Day service since they started; raised money for the building of the hospital and have supported many other charities and causes for many years. The band currently has a membership of over 25 players.
The band meets on Monday nights at 7.00 p.m. at the Band Centre situated at the entrance to Island Park. Visiting players are always welcome to come and join in rehearsal.
