Well, we finally made it, and again just sneaking in before another pesky series of lockdowns.

How amazing to finally be back in front of an audience – thank you to everyone who donned their masks and joined us as we journeyed through some mysterious pieces, through to the light on the other side.

Thank you, as always, to our amazing supporters and sponsors at Thorne Harbour Health, and the City of Stonnington, as well as Maddocks Lawyers who provided sponsorship for this concert.

Through the Darkest Night was such a wonderful afternoon spent with all of our supporters, we’re already looking forward to when we can be out and playing for you all again soon!

Midsumma Pride 2021

June 3, 2021

Who knew we would be sneaking in another year of Midsumma Pride just before another lockdown!

After a year of Zoom rehearsals and playing quietly to ourselves, the Melbourne Rainbow Band came back stronger than ever, and marched proudly down Fitzroy Street on the 23rd of May. Despite our concerns that it would be a quiet affair, we were warmly welcomed by a raucous (COVID safe) crowd, who were just as excited as we were to be back out in St Kilda.

We were so excited to finally play to a crowd, and debut our amazing new uniforms! Thank you to our uniform committee for wrangling the design and logistics, we couldn’t be happier with our new look.

Fingers crossed for another successful Pride in 2022!
