Salvation Army ministers David and Annita Allman get ready for the Moe RSL Brass Band on Saturday night.
Rochester Salvation Army will host a 15-piece brass band from Moe on Saturday night and Sunday morning.
On Saturday night the Moe RSL Brass Band will play a two-hour free concert at the Salvation Army church in Rochester at 7pm.
Salvation Army minister David Allman said there would be solo performances by different band members and some vocal numbers, too.
Mr Allman played with the band when he worked at the Dandenong Salvation Army and often made trips to nearby towns to play gigs.
‘‘There are not many brass bands left of that size,’’ he said.
He said instruments such as the guitar and piano had taken over from the brass bands traditionally associated with the Salvation Army.
As well as the Saturday night concert, the band will take the Salvation Army ceremony on Sunday at 10am and play some Christmas carols.
