Dear Bands and Band members,
The Victorian Bands' League recognises that all bands and band members have made significant sacrifices in 2020 to their music through cancellation of rehearsals and performances. It has been a difficult time for many, yet, as we have seen, bands have proved themselves to be inventive, adaptable and resilient while making use of the technology of the day to stay connected.
The Victorian Bands' League Library & Archive is wishing to document the life of bands and band members while under COVID lockdowns as the experiences will be useful for future research and interested band people. The Archive would be seeking digital files which could include (but are not limited to):
These files would be contributed with the knowledge that they may be used by the VBL for social media or on the VBL website and will be stored for research purposes. There is also a possibility certain files would be contributed to local history sections of Victorian libraries if requested by the library. The files would be stored in a secure "cloud".
