Thursday 5 December 2013 - Launch of Video "Wish You Were Here", Fed Square (#82)

Pans on Fire (and some members of Hot Pans) ventured into the city again to play at the launch of the Marysville promotional video "Wish You Were Here" on Thursday 5 December at Federation Square. They played on the main stage while the video and other promotional pictures were displayed on the overhead screen, as the assembled dignitaries and media launched the campaign in the square.

The promotional video, produced by Barry Thomas from VideoVision, features some iconic Marysville vision, backed by the sounds of the Bendigo Bank Communities Super Steelband from the Australian Steelband Festival held in Marysville in April 2013.

After the launch, and while the weather changed from overcast to torrential rain, many of the band adjourned to the nearly Chocolate Buddha restaurant for a bite to eat and a chat.

Then after the weather cleared, we decide to join in the Christmas spirit in Federation Square.
