CollectionsTooth & Company Limited
Date created: ca. 1929
A voluntary, self-governing body of workmen/musicians associated with (and financially supported by) Tooth & Company Limited, Tooth's Brewery Band entered the contest field in January 1928 as a fully-fledged, completely-equipped Grade B band. Thereafter, it completed regularly in the annual New South Wales championship, with modest success, and also entered other local contests within the state. In addition, it performed without payment at various charitable fund-raising events in and around Sydney, obtained a series of paid engagements, notably at rugby union fixtures, and played regular lunch-time concerts in the brewery yard for the entertainment of its fellow employees. For its part, the company continued to contribute to the Band's running costs, both by cash donations and by providing rehearsal facilities, free transport, free beer, and time off work when the Band was due to appear in public.
