The Royal New Zealand Air Force Band has been a vital unit of the New Zealand Defence Force for more than 80 years. The band is made up of highly skilled reservists, with many also performing in other leading ensembles, ranging from the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Wellington to Shapeshifter and the Rodger Fox Big Band.
The largest professional symphonic band in the country, the RNZAF Band returns to Art Deco Festival with a variety show covering symphonic masterworks, jazz standards and of course some Art Deco classics to boot.
The band will perform at Hastings' stunning Toitoi - Hawke's Bay Arts & Events Centre under the baton of Flight Lieutenant David Gallaher MNZM. The RNZAF Band is thrilled to return to the Art Deco Festival, and to present this wonderful show of music that everyone will enjoy.
