Brumbies bush band

Brumbies bush band

Melbourne's Favourite Bush Band. Formed in 1978, the Brumbies have performed for generations of Melbourne's folkies and bush dancers. With a vast repertoire of dances, and one of the best dance callers in Australia, the Brumbies entertain dancers of all ages, from kinder to pensioners, and from experts to beginners. Our songs are mainly traditional Australian, but include some more modern and some international items.

VFMC children's bush dance on the third Saturday of each month during school terms. Dances are called and these events are tailored to suit school age children. A different band is featured each month. Parents or guardians are welcome attend and to participate in the fun.
