Today saw Feilding Brass perform at the Feilding Library Family Fun Day 2023, held at Kowhai Park in Feilding.
Lead by Catherine Duxfield, the band played a 30 min segment of light entertaining music to a huge crowd, featuring A Grand Day Out, Another Day in Paradise, Despacito, Fields of Gold, Video Killed the Radio Star, One Moment in Time, Blackadder’s March and Friend Like Me.
The band looks forward to playing here again next year.
Coming up on the 26th March 2023, the band will be performing at Brass in The Park at the Levin Adventure Playground. Amongst 3 other bands, Feilding Brass will perform for an hour starting around 2pm. See you there.
Come along to the Manawatu Youth Expo this Saturday 18 February at the Feilding Civic Centre and check out Feilding Brass Training Band. Several of the senior band members will be there to show you all there is to know about the band, how to play an instrument and how to get started in the Training Band. You are never too old to start.

Its that time of year again when Xmas parades are all go. As a standing tradition, Feilding Brass, Levin & Districts Brass and Dannevirke Brass help each other out to bolster numbers and just have a real good time. Parades done this year were Ashhusrt, Dannevirke and Feilding. Unfortunately due to bad weather, Levin was cancelled.
As like all other times of the year, our final playout was Christmas Carols in Feilding.
This is a very special playout, as it is our MD Carissa Davies’ last out in front of the band.
Carissa won’t be leaving the band, but returning to play Euphonium in 2023, so we look forward to seeing her on that in the new year.
On behalf of the band and all our supporters, we would like to thank Carissa for all her hard work in front of the band and all that she did behind the scenes to keep the band going. We appreciate all you have done for us.
22nd October 2022 saw Feilding Brass back in concert, back in the Feilding Centre after a while of being away. It was good to be there.
Music varied from Another One Bite The Dust, All That Jazz, Hine Hine to The Wellerman.
The concert included solos from Andrew Aitken playing Under The Boardwalk and Nadia Aitken playing Stardust, in the first half and second half respectively.
We were very lucky to have two guest vocalists with us, Andrew Jamieson and Erica Ward who sang with us throughout the concert, which added to enjoyment of the afternoon.
This year we introduced the concept of having an afternoon tea while watching and listening to the band, and it was a great success.
Feilding Brass wishes to acknowledge and thank Wayne Belk for being our photographer for the day. It was much appreciated. We would also like to thank the following sponsors, that helped make today possible – Alsco, Mikey’s Building Services, Feilding & District Promotion Inc, Gilmours, Reuben Lueng-Wai and Nigel Towers.
Please enjoy some more photos from the concert and we hope to see you next time.
