About Us

The Central Coast Concert Band was incorporated in 1989. The band rehearsed in a number of school classrooms, school halls and even in a shed in an industrial estate. For a period the band occupied a purpose-built facility in Niagara Park, however this having been sold the band has now moved to its current location at the rehearsal hall in the Gosford Masonic Centre, 28 William Street, Gosford.
The band is a traditional concert or wind band. Instrumentation includes Flute/Piccolo, Oboe, Bassoon, Bb Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, French Horn, Trumpet/Cornet, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba, String Bass and Percussion

The band performs at many local community events, such as the Gosford Show, Australia Day celebrations, fetes, special events for volunteer organisations, Naturalisation ceremonies, ANZAC Day commemoration events and for the past 20 years has performed four concerts each year at the local Laycock Street Community Theatre which was built as a Bi-Centennial project in 1988. The band currently runs a Subscription Series of three concerts from the Gosford RSLClub. These concerts have a large audience most of whom are annual subscribers. The band also on many occasions has performed with a guest band. Some of our partner bands over the years have included the Royal Australian Navy Band for many years, NSW Police Concert Band, Australian Army Band Sydney, NSW Ambulance Band, Campbelltown-Camden Concert Band, Southern Highlands Concert Band, City of Sydney Concert Band to name some.

The community spirit within the band is a strength among our members. From a small gathering of local musicians of all ages with limited resources the band has prospered and provided a unique opportunity for wind, brass and percussion players at all levels.

Over the years the band has also competed at National and State Band Championship events with success in our first competition. 1993 – Open D Grade NSW State Champions, 1994, 1995 – Open C Grade NSW State Champions, 1996, 1997 – 3rd place Australian National Band Championships, 2009 – 2nd place Australian National Band Championships, 2015 equal 4th place Australian National Band Championships.
