We exist to extend the Kingdom of God and to encourage Christians in their faith and ministry through the pursuit of excellence in music and the spoken word.

Our aims are to set standards in the presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Welcome

Welcome to the Melbourne Staff Band website.

The MSB looks forward to the opportunities of sharing its music and the gospel message as we visit corps around Melbourne and country Victoria during 2014.

The band will celebrate Easter in Western Australia participating in Good Friday Services in Perth and then travelling south to Albany. A busy weekend is planned with a Saturday evening concert, an Easter Sunday morning sunrise service and an ecumenical march and rally.

The band will be featured in a number of concerts during the year including our Brass Unlimited concert with Box Hill City Band on Saturday 5th April. Tickets are available via trybooking.com/EJEC.

On Saturday 17th May the band will join with the popular male quartet The Couriers, and vocal soloist Colleen Arnott at 1330 Church in Scoresby to present an evening of music and praise. Our weekend engagement in June will find us joining with bands and musicians from the Western Victoria Division on Saturday 14th June and leading services at South Barwon corps on Sunday 15th June.

We have been invited by the Melbourne Veterans Band to join them in a concert on Saturday 21st June to celebrate and honour Noel Jones, for his 14 years of service as bandmaster of the Veterans Band. Being an MSB alumnus and a renowned Salvation Army composer, it will be fitting for Noel to be honoured in such a way.

All young brass players and percussionists should plan to attend Future Brass 2014 on 18th-20th July. Our special guest leader will be Staff Bandmaster Dr. Stephen Cobb (International Staff Band). This promises to be a great weekend of fellowship and musical development.  

October will be something different as we support our territorial leaders, Commissioners Floyd and Tracey Tidd as they lead our Territorial Chinese Congress. The MSB will be the featured music group and participate in the worship services throughout the weekend.

The year will conclude with the band being featured at Our Christmas Gift and providing musical support to the Cadets’ Commissioning meetings.
We hope you get a chance to hear the MSB ‘live’ sometime during 2014. If you can’t, why not buy a CD!

My God and King! - Released!!

It was back in the summer of 1978 at the International Congress that my enthusiasm for Army banding really took hold, much of it stemming from a visit to Chelmsford by the Melbourne Staff Band - what a night it gave us!
