From the Geelong Independent 13/03/2009 "Buckets and Bouquets":
On behalf of fellow Aussies, I would just like to say that I/we are EXTREMELY proud of each and every one of you for what you have done for the bush fire victims these past few weeks. Your music and friendly faces made all the difference, even to people like me who watched it all on tv. You are a positive role model for the police force too.
I had a good time today and thank you, I think you Rock!
To see 750 adolescents singing, dancing, laughing and exuding happiness was a sheer delight...'
You came to my school, and you guys were fab! Daina your voice is beautiful and Elise you are one funky police woman! Larry you were reallly good I love Into The Night and your singing's really good. I just wanted to thank you guys sooooooooooooooooo much!
I would like to say how delighted we were with the performance of the Victoria Police Band at our Heart of Melbourne Ball on 13 September at the Regent Plaza Ballroom. This was made even more special by the additional performance of the Chief Commissioner.
I loved it so much I think you should come again. Rock on dudes !!
'I'm in grade 1 and I did like it when your band came out to my school last week it was fun and we all had a great time and we are all hoping that your band comes back to our school again it was really really fun thank you.'
The Police band was really enjoyable. The music was great and the music sounded so good! I cannot wait till the next time they come. It was AWESOME'
'We just wanted to say thank you for coming to Glenallen with the show band yesterday. The class I am with thought it was great, they enjoyed the music and dancing. It is so important for people to come and play for us as we can't get the students out to concerts. Please pass on our thanks to the whole band.'
'Just wanted to thank you and the members of Code One for their attendance at Walk in Harmony Day today in Flemington. We really appreciated having you guys down there to interact with the crowd. Not only was the music and show fantastic but their entire performance was really good. Can you please pass on my thanks on to the band, the day was a great success and we thank them for being a part of it.'
'This morning I went to Box Hill Central to buy something that I need for my class this afternoon. In the out door area was the Victorian police Band. I have to tell you that they were delightful. The band had a great feeling about them and I looked on with great pride.'
'Hi everybody! That show today was fully sick! You came when I was in about Year 4 or 5 and you totally rocked. Today, I'm in Year 7 and I, along with my other mates had a ball and loved every song. Anyway, I wanted to tell you how great you all were. Thank you again for your rock performance it was cool.'
'Through these concerts we were able to provide a service to our local community, entertain and educate a large number of children, inspire a number of budding young musicians, and enhance the image these young people have of Victoria Police. You have a very fine public relations unit in this band.'
'Dear police band. My name is Rhiannon. I saw you play at Billanook Primary School and you all played great. My favourite songs were 'Mamma Mia' by Abba, 'I see you watch,en, me watch,en you' by Rouge Traders, and The Simpsons. But all the other songs were great too. YOU ALL ROCK!'
'Wow! That band of yours was really cool! Thanks for the school visit. I loved the songs, especially the 'Downtown' one.'
'I really liked watching the band today and my favourite part was when they sang 'Mamma Mia'. It was so much fun. I liked when we went in the police van, it was really cool.'
'I could not have wished for such an extraordinary response. People of every colour, shape, size and culture were dancing, and dancing together. It was the most amazing and rewarding sight. People who are normally nervous of anyone in uniform completely forgot about their fears, and saw that these people in uniform are in fact just people, who also play great music'
'. . .you guys were fantastic. That was the first time I actually heard you perform and it was great. All the kids thought you great.'
'The Band member's enthusiasm and positive attitude was a major benefit to this event and reflected positively on Victoria Police. The musician's approachability and sense of fun enabled the kids to feel confident. Within minutes, they were dancing and interacting with them, breaking down many barriers.'
