John ‘Tess’ Tesoriero – BBb Tuba
John Tesoriero, affectionately known by all as Tess, was one of the founding members of the Waverley Municipal Band, (later changed to Waverley Bondi Beach Band and now Bondi Brass). Tess is our BB Tuba player and the band’s Property Manager. He is a tireless worker for the Festival, arranging transport and the delivery of any extra percussion we require. His dulcet tones can be heard in the Clancy foyer as he updates Festival patrons regarding the progress of events.
Tessie’s wife, Barb, and their daughter, Carla, also help out at the ticket office during the Festival making it a real family affair.
