About Cardinia Civic Concert Band

Cardinia Civic Concert Band is the premier band of the shire and we perform at a number of events including Pakenham Show, Australian Day, citizenship ceremonies and many carols by candlelight and ANZAC Day events throughout Cardinia.

The band was originally formed in the late 1880’s and started out as a brass band under the direction of a drum major, but became the Pakenham Concert Band, during the 1970’s. Towards the end of 1994, the Shire of Pakenham merged with surrounding suburbs to form the Shire of Cardinia and so the band changed its name, accordingly, to become the Cardinia Civic Concert Band.
