The Melbourne Rainbow Band


We exist to provide an opportunity for musicians to develop their musical abilities in an environment free of prejudice and discrimination and to promote the LGBTQ+ community to the wider population.

The Melbourne Rainbow Band is a gender and sexually diverse community concert band. We began in 1995, and currently have around 40 members drawn from the LGBTQ+ and Ally communities. We are a non-profit community group.

Our members’ musical skill levels vary from beginner to professional and our MRB family spans the entire rainbow spectrum – as long as you are enthusiastic, accepting, and love music, we are happy to have you! The MRB does not hold auditions for members and is open to all players with basic music reading and playing abilities.

Our repertoire is as diverse as our members. We play music from movies, musicals and TV, pop, rock, jazz, classical and everything in between.

We are registered as: Incorporated Association.
