The Mainland Big Band is a long-established, 19-piece, Christchurch dance band with a large and very varied repertoire ranging from Big Band and jazz standards to rock and pop. The Band rehearses weekly on Wednesday evenings and performs publicly at least once per month. Note that our positions are voluntary – for the majority of members the Band is a sideline and not a career.
We require our players to be a good team members, be prepared to attend regular rehearsals and be available for performances (allowances are, of course, always made for sickness, holidays, family birthdays, anniversaries etc!)
The band is in need of more saxophones to join its reed section.
