New Year / New Website!

We’ve had a bit of a facelift and we’re super excited to finally launch our new website that has been in the works for several months now.

We’ve decided to include player profiles, an online ticketing system that allows our concert goers to purchase their tickets using their debit/credit cards, we’ve got a brand new shop and are planning on bringing in merchandise very soon. We’ve also included ways to share our pages through social media using the buttons below each of the articles.

Currently, we’re working towards integrating the Windsor side of the players profiles and the Windsor events – so watch this space!

If you have any questions please feel free to shoot us a message through our contact page.

Happy browsing!

End of Year Awards 2016

15492207_1349741751745079_4821020594551602629_nIt’s that time of year again – Christmas decorations, Christmas Carols, and of course, the annual Brisbane XLCR Inc. Band Awards Social event.

After our first BBQ last year, the band decided to hold another at Colleges Crossing, Ipswich for members of both Brisbane XLCR and Windsor Bands. Lots of food and drink were consumed and the band says a huge thanks to everyone who helped, but especially Michael Martin, Ross Moloney and Gareth Lawless for their contributions to the day. With the huge numbers of band children we were even blessed to have a visit by Santa Claus himself, who brought fantastic toys for all the children of the organization.
