Hyde Street Youth Band presents Sons of the West

Grand Final Parade 2021 – ISO Style

Hyde Street Youth Band is based in Footscray, an inner-Western suburb of Melbourne, which provides an opportunity for young people of the West and across Melbourne to develop their musical education in brass instruments and support our community through musical performance. Hyde Street Youth Bands have three bands, a Training Band, Junior Band and Youth Band and is associated with the Footscray-Yarraville City Percussion Academy.

The Band always welcomes new members, whether novice or experienced and is supported by the City of Maribyrnong.

The pandemic has greatly reduced the opportunities for our young members to make music together. Amongst many community band performances such as Anzac Day and community events, our young members have very much missed playing in the Grand Final Parade for the last two years. But being motivated and resilient young people with the dedication and support of their fabulous Musical Directors, Phillipa Edwards, Andrew Wilson, Caitlin Taylor, and Katie Thomas of the Footscray-Yarraville Percussion Academy, the Hyde Street Youth Bands and Academy have moved their music making online as best they could.

The Hyde Street Youth Bands have now put together the theme song of the Western Bulldogs. – exactly what we would have loved to have done in person. Click the heading above to link through to our Facebook page and recording. Enjoy and share with your community.
