• QBA Launch new Website!

    To reflect QBAs commitment to a new age of Banding in Queensland, we are proud to announce the launch of our brand new website! After months of development activity, the QBA has a website that will be able to be used as an invaluable tool for all Band and Banders alike, to know what is happening in the Banding world and seek QBA support and guidance as the State Governing body.
  • Join the QBA

    Are you interested in supporting your governing body and working together to support and grow banding in Queensland? If so, contact the QBA via tanya.torpy@optusnet.com and volunteer to be a part of the team working to promote and sustain banding in Queensland.
  • Join your Local Band

    Do you know how to play an instrument or would you like to learn? If so, please refer to the list of QBA Affiliated bands to locate a Band in your local area. There are many bands all throughout Queensland that would love for you to be involved!
  • Centre of Expertise

    The new Website features a new function, the Centre of Expertise (CoE). The CoE is designed to be a useful tool for all bands and banders, as it is a dedicated database of useful knowledge for banders that can easily be searched with the press of a button. From marketing to fundraising ideas and other concepts and approaches to improve your band profile in the public, the CoE is intended to help all bands improve and grow as their own organisations.
