PARRAMATTA MODEL BAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 10 August 1895

PARRAMATTA MODEL BAND. Steps are being taken to establish a model band, to embrace the pick of the splendid musicians who abound in Parramatta and district Mr. G. O'Shea is to be conductor ; and the band will embrace 24 members. The band will compete for the £30 and £20 prizes which have been offered in connection with the approaching Competition ; but before doing so they will give two or three performances for the benefit of the public in Alfred Square. The first practice is announced as to take plaoe in the deserted printing office, next to Mr. J. E. Bowden's office, and opposite the Courthouse. If the district has a band of its own, the people may be able to get the class of music they want, and the same when they want it. It is to be hoped the Model musicians will always remember their obligations to the public ; the public will assuredly treat them well if they do.
