There is a lot of dissent in the ranks regarding the 'lack of work' and I hear it often, yet I re-list so many names regularly in the gig guides... I have found over all these years there are a few pitfalls that some tend to fall into.

Fairhaven Services teams up with Perform-ability

Two leading local disability service providers, Fairhaven Services and Perform-Ability, have joined forces to offer a new supported performance activity, “Drama And Dance”, to bring the joy of movement and music to people with disability on the Central Coast.

The new one hour class will help to build life skills such as gaining confidence, learning to work as a team and practicing social skills in a safe environment.

Fairhaven’s Life Skills Program Coordinator, Maria Watson, says it makes perfect sense to partner up with Perform-ability, who have grown from a single dance class in 2010 to a multi performance program running 24 classes a week in 16 locations between Newcastle and Sydney.

“Fairhaven has a long history of providing person-centred supports and services to people with disability across the greater Gosford and Wyong areas. Our team of qualified support staff are highly skilled professionals who value and respect peoples abilities, and encourage clients to achieve personal goals.

The team of staff at Perform-ability are experienced dance teachers, drama teachers, primary school teachers and speech therapists who are passionate about working with people with special needs and disabilities.

We share a belief that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy life to their full potential. Together we can help build a healthy, engaged community that promotes access and inclusion for everyone.” Maria said.

Fairhaven Services already delivers a high standard of supported programs that provide people the opportunity to increase their independence and become better connected within their communities.

Overall the organisation has five classes operating from their Point Clare and Tuggerah sites which have been designed to develop skill, promote self-confidence and build social networks.

Our classes are ideal for people whose goals and aspirations are to achieve greater social participation.”

The current schedule of activities includes:
* Eco Warriors (Tuggerah)
* Boxing Fitness (Tuggerah)
* Line Dancing (Point Clare)
* Drumming and Rhythm (Point Clare)
* Rock ‘n’ Jam Sessions (Point Clare)

The new “Drama And Dance” class will commence this week and continue to run each Thursday from 10am to 11am at Fairhaven Services in the Community Building, 209 Brisbane Water Drive, Point Clare, cost is $12.

This year we are starting to raise money to upgrade all the classrooms and bathrooms, as well as purchase more iPads and Smart Boards.

As at any school we need the help of our Glenvale families to bring together this great event. Our first request for help is to ask for donations of prizes for the Silent Auction.

Blues On The Mountain imageWhats On Logo button image 19-TWENTY - BLUES ON THE MOUNTAIN:
Blues on the Mountain presents 19 - Twenty

After a massive year performing at major festivals all over Australia, popular Blues and roots act, 19 - Twenty, are heading to the Central Coast and will be performing a special one of show at the iconic Mangrove Mountain Heritage Hall on Saturday the 10th of September.

This will be a rare opportunity to catch one of Australia's most exciting live acts at such an intimate venue and is also 19-Twenty's only Central Coast show before heading interstate to perform at the Mitchell Creek Rock n Blues Festival.

The band's high energy performances and engagement with their audience has packed festival venues from Woodford Folk festival in Queensland to Blues at Bridgetown in W.A., where the band picked up the festival's people's choice award two years running.
19- Twenty have also performed alongside some of the biggest names in Australian music such as Angus and Julia Stone, Augie March and John Williamson at the Queenscliff Music festival.

Featuring Syd Green (Leonardo's Bride) on Drums, Kane Dennelly - lead guitar/vocals/acrobatic dance moves, and Johnny G's thumping double bass lines, 19 - Twenty are described by premier online music publication, Tone Deaf, as "one of the most exciting riff and groove based blues and roots acts emerging from Australia"

The band has also received airplay on Triple J, for their single "YOLO", and wide spread acclaim for both their debut album "Zion" and recently released self-titled album.

"Last year I drove for 7 hours to catch 19- Twenty's performance at the Great Southern Blues Festival, and I know a lot of fellow Coasties did the same. They have a great following here on the Coast. To be 19-Twenty's first show announced of their upcoming tour, at a time when they are in such high demand, is fantastic and a real credit to the music fans of the Central Coast" Event organiser, Ryan Howard, said.

Supporting 19 - Twenty, on the night, will be 2015 Home Grown Acoustic Award winner, Toby Wells. Toby has supported acts such as Thirsty Merc, with his band Stranger Than Paradise, and also performed as a soloist alongside well known blues and roots musicians, such as Genevieve Chadwick, Grizzlee Train and the PJ O'Brien band to name a few.

Food and refreshments will be available on the night or byo welcome.
Doors open at 6pm.

Blues on the Mountain returns to Mangrove Mountain Heritage Hall on Saturday the 12th of November, featuring a fantastic lineup of local and interstate acts. Headlining the event will be Melbourne's sharp dressed men of the blues, Catfish Voodoo, who will be performing on the Central Coast for the very first time! Catfish Voodoo have earned a reputation as one of Australia's finest electric blues boogie bands, with stand out performances at the Australian Blues music festival and Bendigo Blues and Roots festival, and we can't wait to have this electrifying five piece band, perform at our heritage hall for Blues on the Mountain.

Joining Catfish Voodoo at our November event, will be Jazz and Soul inspired singer/songwriter, Dominique Morgan. Dominique has recently toured throughout New South Wales and Victoria, and has also supported Darren Middleton (Powderfinger), her amazing voice and beautiful guitar work winning her a loyal following along the way.

Also on the lineup will be the Central Coast's own songbirds, The Little Quirks Band. The Little Quirks Band are sisters Abbey and Mia along with their cousin Jaymi, and together this young all girl group have been wowing audiences with their refreshing style of modern folk music wherever they perform. The Little Quirks Band will also be releasing their much anticipated 3rd EP, with, for the first time, all original songs written by the band, on the night.

Once again, our popular signed guitar raffle will be held on the night, so don't forget to buy yourself a raffle ticket or two on the night, and go into the draw to win an acoustic guitar signed by all the musicians performing at the event!

Patonga Blues Across The Bay 2016 imageWhats On Logo button image PATONGA BLUES ACROSS THE BAY:
Welcome to Australia’s only ferry Access Blues Festival, now in its 16th year

So grab your picnic rug, your sun hat and let’s boogie.

As usual we will have a stellar Australian Blues line in stall for you.

If you’ve been here before, you’ll know the drill , but those who don’t – take a look around. You’ll need to bring your own picnic and drinks, chairs and rugs. You can even bring your swimmers if you feel like a splash.

There is reason why people keep coming back:
•We have stayed true to our principles of presenting only genuine Blues music at its best.
•We don’t stray from that path because we believe our discerning patrons like it that way.
•We keep it small to ensure harmony and comfort for everyone.
•We keep the cost as low as we can to make the festival accessible without compromising quality and safety.

Because this festival is held in such a beautiful and culturally significant location, local aboriginal elder, Gavi Duncan from the Darkinjung people will open the entertainment with a “Welcome to Country” ceremony to set the mood for the afternoon.

Remember, this is a small festival and tickets are strictly limited, so get cracking.

Fiona Boyes & the Fortune Tellers
Australian Blues guitarist and singer, Fiona Boyes, has been variously described by reviewers as a ‘musical anomaly’, ‘Bonnie Raitt’s evil twin’, or simply as ‘scaring the hell out of me’. …

The Kate Lush Band

NSW Fire and Rescue State Chamionshios logo imageWhats On Logo button image BI ANNUAL STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS:
NSW Firefighter Championship on the Central Coast.

Central Coast Council is pleased to support the bi-annual Fire and Rescue NSW Championship – the first time it has ever been held on the Coast.

Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) teams from across the state will converge at the Norah Head Sports Ground on Bungary Road for the three-day championship to be held from 27th to 29th October 2016.

FRNSW Assistant Commissioner and Championships Director Rob McNeil announced the championship will take place at the end of October and encouraged Central Coast residents to mark the date in their calendar and come along.

The competition challenges their skills in setting up and deploying firefighting equipment quickly and safely.

It’s a great opportunity for the community, especially budding firefighters, to come along and see what it’s all about.

There’ll be fire safety demonstrations and much more.

Central Coast Council Administrator Ian Reynolds said he was thrilled the Coast would host such a great event that would celebrate the important role firefighters play in our community while showcasing the Coast as a great place to host major events.
“I am pleased the FRNSW have chosen the Coast to hold this exciting event and we are proud to support the great work our fireys deliver for our community each and every day,” Mr Reynolds said.

All Championship events, community safety demonstrations and activities will be held at Norah Head Sports Ground on the corner of Maitland Street and Bungary Road, Norah Head from 8am to 5pm from Thursday to Saturday (27th-29th October).

Entry is free.

The opening ceremony is at 11am on Thursday 27th October.

A community engagement event will be held at Memorial Park, The Entrance on Friday 28th October from 5pm to 9pm.

The event will include:
• Displays from Fire and Rescue NSW
• Emergency Service Displays from other Agencies (Police, SES, RFS and VRA)
• A firefighter torchlight parade along Marine Parade
• Fireworks to conclude the evening.
