The Billabong Band

The Billabong Band

The Billabong Band is the Victorian Folk Music Club's own performance group and is probably the longest established band in Australia playing traditional music for Bush / Colonial dances and for concerts. The line-up is variable and depends on which musicians are available at the time.

Information for Prospective Bands

For our Balls and other special events, our bands need to have a large repertoire of dances, and to be prepared to take on and prepare music for other specialised dances. We welcome additional bands to join us and play excellent dance music for our discerning dancers. Schedules for special events are usually prepared well in advance.

If your band is interested in joining us, please contact Jane, the dance convenor for details.

Corona Virus Arrangements

VFMC are currently working towards a safe return to face-to-face dance events subject to current Government restrictions and our Covid safe plan.
