We have a draft broadcast schedule up, that will help you plan your viewing times.

Napier’s Municipal Theatre

Brassbanned is very excited about the 2016 NZ Nationals. We have arrived in Napier, expecting fast internet connections, excellent playing and another fantastically run contest.

We will have a single static camera covering the C and D grade bands at the Century Theatre, and at least 3 cameras covering the A and B grade bands at the Municipal Theatre

We will do our best to live stream the street march – but – if there is not very good 4G network available, we might have to just record it to put on YouTube.

The exact playing order of bands – and their repertoire – will be published on Friday morning, when the information is generally available to everyone else

Who will win?

We don’t know! That’s what makes it so exciting. Wellington are the favourite for A Grade, but team Brassbanned is most looking forward to hearing the exciting young musicians from Eastern Bay of Plenty performing!
