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!

Camp Quality imageWhats On Logo button image CAMP QUALITY CHARITY EVENING:
We are busy organising our inaugural Camp Quality 1000 k’s 4 Kids Charity Evening which will take place on the 30th August (attended by 350 people) at the Showroom at the Mingara Recreation Club. This event is an effort to raise some much needed funds for our local Camp Quality kids and continue to provide them with Camps and Fun Therapy activities.

The emphasis of this event is to raise funds specifically for the 2014 Camp Quality 1000km Ride and the Central Coast team that will be heading out on this 10 day event in September.

For the first time, the Central Coast Camp Quality team will try it’s hand at a Charity Event as another great way to raise funds.
We see this as fantastic exposure and recognition to businesses since it will held at one of the more salubrious and popular venues on the coast attracting a huge and diverse audience from the local area.. Obvious acknowledgements of contributions will be publicised and there are many planned events on the evening to promote donations.

The night will comprise of live music and entertainment, games, trivia, challenges, raffles and auctions and should be an absolute blast!!

Mingara One is the major sponsor for our team which we are absolutely delighted about. We are sharing this delight and hoping to put a big stamp on the Mingara One social calendar with all gym members and staff invited to come along to this event as well as running and joining in various challenges within the gym leading up to the ride throughout the preceding months.

Yes it is about raising funds but it is also about getting some great community spirit and friendships happening across the local area. Members and, friends or family of members, are all welcome.

To make this a success, I hope that you may be able to support us by being involved in the challenges and future events or even donating a Gift Voucher or item that we can use at this event in our Raffles/Prizes/Auctions. If you are aware of local businesses that might want to donate or attend please let us know.

I know you are asked by lots of people for donations, but as Camp Quality receives no Government funding at all, we have to rely solely on the generosity of people such as yourselves to keep bringing smiles to these courageous kids faces.

Camp Quality is a non profit organisation that is committed to bringing hope and happiness to every child living with cancer, their families and communities.

We passionately believe in the power of fun in helping children and their families overcome the challenges that cancer brings.

We believe Laughter is the Best Medicine!

Ash Grunwald imageWhats On Logo button image ASH GRUNWALD NATIONAL TOUR:
Over the course of Ash's career he's developed for himself a unique place in the Australian music setting. His undeniable foundations in traditional blues music have meant that he's been able to explore all kinds of musical burroughs without ever diluting his blues bent nor his credibility. Ash has worked with Count Bounce, t.z.u, Mr Trials, Funk Oars, Kram and Urthboy. He's played on a Pete Murray single and had Rob Hurst, Vika and Lynda Bull, Chris Wilson and Ian collard on stage as part of his band. He even did a song with Joe Camilleri once for the ABC.

Last year he unashamedly unleashed the rock beast with Scott and Andy from The Living End on their collaborative album GARGANTUA, throwing the final match that’s turned his creative flame into a raging bonfire.

Writing, demoing, rehearsing and just plain ol' jamming like never before, Ash Grunwald has come back full circle; to the durgy, stomping solo blues that made him famous as a young, authentic blues musician thundering his way into the hearts of his generation some 10 years ago.

To the highways of America Ash took his soul on fire with good friend Xavier Rudd and now Ash can't....wait....to bring it home! Back on the stomp box, a man who needs little amplification and zero bells and whistles to get the whole joint jumpin'!

Kiss Chasey imageWhats On Logo button image KISSCHASY ANNOUNCE COAST SHOW:
KISSCHASY consists of Darren Cordeaux, Joel Vanderuit, Karl Ammitzboll and Sean Thomas.

The boys formed the band way back in 2002 while they were growing up together in the country town of Balnarring on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.

On the band’s debut album United Paper People and its follow up Hymns For The Non-Believer KISSCHASY showed a knack for energetic and melodic guitar pop that made them firm Triple J faves and earned them ARIA Award nominations. Anthems like “The Do Do’s and Whoa-ohs” and “Opinions Won’t Keep You Warm At Night” saw the group’s live popularity rise to the point where they sold out major venues like Sydney’s Enmore Theatre and The Forum, Melbourne in 2008. The songs also led to both albums eventually being certified gold with combined sales of over 100,000 copies.

Fast forward a year later and the band delivered smart songwriting, huge hooks and killer harmonies on their third long-player, Seizures which was nothing less than a quantum leap creatively and, as such, attracted both deeper and broader attention. It was recorded in Los Angeles during 2009 with legendary indie-rock producer Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Beck, Powderfinger, The Vines) Seizures featured the singles "Generation Why", "Turnaround" and the 2010 gold selling fan favourite "Dinosaur". The band were also awarded the publicly voted Channel [V] Oz Artist of the Year around this time.

KISSCHASY boast a rock-solid rhythm section and off-the-leash guitar chops to rival any of their peers and their blistering live shows are testament to a band who have well and truly hit their stride.
