Lost for Words strong after 13 years despite line-up changes

THE line-up for stage band Lost For Words has changed over time and the band now plays a collection of music for all ages.

Lost For Words is made up of about 13 musicians playing a range of instruments from saxophone, trumpets, trombones, keyboard, drums, guitar and bass guitar.

Trombone player Leanne Christensen said she was one of the few original members still playing in the band, having joined 13 years ago.

"My brother actually started it," she said.

"There's three of us who have been in the band the whole time."

The band is often seen playing at community events around the region, but they have also played in Biloela and Rockhampton.

"We play a mixture of music," Miss Christensen said.

"We've got swing, jazz, rock and some popular music."

Miss Christensen said she loved working and performing with the group of people in the band.

"We get along well together and play good music," she said.

Miss Christensen has been playing trumpet since she was a child, and for about 13 years she has played trombone.

Lost For Words will conduct a free concert on at Library Square, on Goondoon St, from 7pm.
