Whats On Central Coast Support Original Music image Whats On Central Coast Logo Button imageWHATS IN A NAME PART 2:
As a follow on from the first in the series of protecting your name; part 2 deals with the pitfalls within the industry itself to give adequate support to our original musicians nurturing their craft.

To run a household you need income; to run a business you need work to get income to keep the business going; obviously. So how can it be that original musicians have to resort to using different names or even worse NOT promoting cover gigs to fund their craft for fear of damaging their reputation – there is something really wrong with this picture!

Zoo n Snooze imageWhats On Logo button image ZOO & SNOOZE 2015:
Zoo&Snooze Changes Homelessness Perspective

“Spreading the message that homelessness can happen to anyone, from any economic background, from one job loss, one bad decision or one instance ofabuse is so important”.

The Annual Zoo and Snooze coordinated by Vicki de Carle from Coast Shelter, will be held at the Central Coast’s iconic Reptile Park on Friday 7th August, for the executive sleepout with a difference.

For the first time Zoo and Snooze has set a fundraising target of $100,00 please get behind this local initiative and donate where you can, please visit the Zoo & Snooze Website and follow the steps to make a donation or get involved.

Money raised from this event goes to Coast Shelter and stays on the Central Coast supporting its locals.

Unfortunately the vision many people have of homeless people is the drunk old man in the park, but that is rare. SO many homeless people are women and children fleeing domestic violence, young people escaping physical and sexual abuse, people with mental health issues and sometimes its just that life has thrown someone a curved ball.

One of the most important elements of Zoo and Snooze is that it raises awareness across the business community, it will change them forever, they get a little insight into what it would be like to have to carry your possessions, unpack your sleeping gear on the ground, try and get some sleep in the cold and then pack it all up again in the morning and move on.
“I am so proud of the Central Coast Business community who not only support this event but actually sleep on the ground in the freezing cold with every yeargetting more sleepers. It is really hard, uncomfortable and extremely cold, but they do it to support people who need a hand, isn’t that that great Aussie spirit displayed perfectly. “ said Vicki.

The minimum fundraising goal for each sleeper is set at $1,000 as a way to maximise fundraising potential and create greater awareness. The sleepers ask colleagues, friends and family to sponsor them to sleep rough for the night, each sleeper will ask everyone they know to donate or buy a raffle ticket, telling them why they are sleeping in rough which in turn raises awareness about homelessness.

“I couldn’t help but wonder how I would have coped if I had not had a home at any stage of my life and especially when my children were young”, she said.
“I will admit I was scared at the thought of sleeping in a park where I would be so vulnerable and I wanted an event where we could feel safe and yet still get the experience”, she added.

Just Eat it imageWhats On Logo button image JUST EAT IT DOCUMENTARY FUNDRAISER:
Avoca Beach Picture Theatre is hosting a screening of "Just Eat It" on Thursday 13th August at 7pm.

This is an eye-opening documentary on food waste and should not be missed.

Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge.

After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away

The event is also a fundraiser for the Cancer Council as part of the 2015 Mystery Box Rally (a car rally similar to the Variety Bash).

Jeralyn is part of a team (team Spandex Squad) for the Mystery Box Rally and has to fundraise over $3000 for the Cancer Council.

Following their SOLD OUT Vivid “Live” Sydney Opera House and Dark MOFO Hobart shows, THE PREATURES have announced their final concert tour of 2015, ‘The Cruel Tour.

The National tour will hit capital cities as well as major regional locations from late August to early October.

THE PREATURES also reveal the video for their current single ‘CRUEL’ taken from their critically acclaimed debut album Blue Planet Eyes. Directed by Byron Spencer, the video includes footage shot by the band when they played a secret gig at venue Oxford Circus in Surry Hills.

The Preatures have hardly stopped for a breath since the release of Blue Planet Eyes last October which debuted at #4 on the ARIA Album Charts. A trip to their second home Austin, Texas for the acclaimed Austin City Limits Festival was followed by a sold out album tour in Australia rounding out 2014.

2015 began with a killer set at Triple J’s Beat The Drum party in Sydney, and shortly afterwards, an extensive world tour to over a dozen countries including USA, UK, France, Germany and Sweden cementing THE PREATURES reputation as one of the most exhilarating and mesmerising live bands on the circuit.
‘The Cruel Tour’ will include special guests THE CREASES, and a selection of Australia’s brightest emerging talent to open each show. These shows will be the last in support of Blue Planet Eyes with the band looking to begin writing and recording their follow-up album at the end of the year.

The Preatures are Isabella (Izzi) Manfredi (vocals, keys) Gideon Bensen (vocals, guitar), Jack Moffitt (lead guitar), Thomas Champion (bass) and Luke Davison (drums)

"The show is about raw passion, without any fluff - it's honest and organic and comes from a place that connects with Zeppelin fans and lovers of great music" Joseph Calderazzo, WHOLE LOTTA LOVE's Creative Director

After sell out shows at Laycock St Theatre since 2007, Australia's longest running Led Zeppelin celebration concert returns for two huge shows on Friday 28th August and Saturday 29th August.

Jeff Martin (The Tea Party)
Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus)
Simon Meli (The Widowbirds)
Dallas Frasca
Frank Lakoudis (The Voice)

Joined by a 9 piece band featuring some of the country's best rock musicians, string section and big screen visuals, WHOLE LOTTA LOVE will deftly traverse the back catalogue of the biggest band in rock history.

CCEntertainment was established in 2003 by Martin Contemprée and Joseph Calderazzo with the stated aim of producing concerts of the highest quality that celebrate and re-interpret the words and music of iconic bands and recording artists from the 60‘s and 70‘s.
To date they have achieved this with capacity crowds at some of Sydney’s finest venues including The Enmore Theatre, The Lyric Theatre (Star City) and The Basement, as well as a string of sold out shows at The Laycock Street Theatre in Gosford.

CCE’s successful shows include the Pink Floyd ‘Great Gig In The Sky’, Rolling Stones ‘Beggars Banquet’, The Beatles ‘A Day In The Life 67 – 70’, Stevie Wonder ‘Songs In The Key Of Life’, Elton John ‘Captain Fantastic’, The Doors ‘Feast Of Friends’, Fleetwood Mac ‘Running Through The Shadows’, Van Morrison Tribute, ‘Tangled Up In Dylan’ and Led Zeppelin ‘Whole Lotta Love’ concerts.

Pearl Beach Glee Club imageWhats On Logo button image VARIETY CONCERTS:
Glee Club Variety Concerts - Pearl Beach Singers present ‘Old English Music Hall’

The English Music Hall began and grew from humble play houses and halls in the early 19th Century – where poor people could enjoy live theatre. By the 1830’s it had blossomed into and embraced the rich traditions of the Music Hall and was held in grand theatres in London such as The Old Vic & Drury Lane. It presented all facets of that era – some of the best variety talent the world could offer, Comedians, Singers, Ventriloquists, Musicians & Dancers. It’s sad demise began in the early 20th Century when other forms of entertainment began to take place.

But the spirit survives and continues to this day, and now with great pride and pleasure we would like to present a tribute to the wonderful memory and history of “Ye Olde English Music Hall”. The Pearl Beach Glee Club Singers follows a long tradition of musical theatre, formed in the nineteen fifties to raise funds to complete the Memorial Hall putting on a number of “Grand Concerts” with many of the local community having no previous theatrical experience.

Dr John Irvine as Master of the concert, and author of the Melodrama – Murder in Pearl Beach says, “this year’s concert promises to build on what is fast becoming a splendid tradition, and the 2015 programme will surprise and delight with a great variety of local talent performed by extraordinary musicians – young and old, amateur and professional’. He continues, “well known Central Coast personalities – Chris King actor and Musical Theatre identity will perform a number from the good old days, while ABC radio personality Scott Levi and partner will dance with the stars”.

Dr Irvine continues, “Pearl Beach is committed to the long tradition of bringing music to the community and we are delighted to be including young Central Coast Conservatorium music students in the 2015 programme. We invite everyone to come along and re-live an era before the advent of television, video, CD’s and I-Pods, a time when entertainment was often impromptu and always spontaneous”.
