STRIKE UP THE BAND: The band performing at Dalby State School.

THE 1st Regiment of the Royal Australian Artillery Band wowed the crowds at the Dalby State School Creekside Markets, WDOP markets and Dalby State High School's Great Hall last weekend.

Community members were amazed at the band's ability to play a range of popular melodies that captured the audience's attention from the first note.

The band also performed a concert with Dalby State School students from Prep to Year 6.

Dalby State School music teacher Katie Commens organised the band's to visit Dalby and said their visit was inspiring.

"We are fortunate to have a quality band with musicians of high calibre visit and play at the Creekside Markets and other venues in town,” Miss Commens said.

"The concert at the Dalby State School High School was remarkable.

"Dalby State School music teachers were delighted to have a group of enthusiastic musicians play in front of our students as well as providing workshops for students in the instrumental program.”

The band has a long history in the RADF and is currently tasked with providing support to communities across Queensland.
