whatsoncentralcoast imageWhats On Logo button image ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY UPDATE:
Entertainment Industry update
The NSW Government enacted new laws to guide and regulate the entertainment industry, and particularly to assist performers and performer representatives (formerly called agents and managers). These laws came into effect on 1 March 2014, following extensive consultation with the industry and peak associations.

Over the last 18 months NSW IR has conducted an education campaign to assist performer representatives understand and comply with the new requirements.

The campaign comprised advisory letters, fact sheets, workshops and a recorded webinar for the entertainment industry.

NSW IR has now commenced a compliance audit of a number of randomly selected performer representatives.

The audit is being conducted in two main phases.

The first phase involves each selected performer representative providing a copy of their 'template' entertainment industry managerial agreement and copies of the last five managerial agreements that have been entered into with performers.
In addition each participant organisation was requested to provide a copy of their 'standard' representation agreement and copies of the last five 'standard' agreements entered into with performers.
These agreements will be reviewed to assess compliance with the Act, and at the completion of this phase of the audit NSW IR will provide feedback to each participant about their agreements.

The second phase of the audit will be to randomly select a number of performer representatives to participate further in reviewing records required to be maintained by performer representatives, including trust account records, financial statements, fees and commissions.
It is our intention to undertake this audit in a cooperative manner to assist the industry. At the end of the audit we expect to publish a de-identified report to further assist compliance in the entertainment industry.

Luke O'Shea imageWhats On Logo button image LUKE O'SHEA AT HARDYS BAY:
Luke O'Shea with Aleyce Simmonds

Changed from Ashleigh Dallas


The 2010 Independent Male Vocalist of the Year, Luke O’Shea has grown into being one of Australia’s most respected country singer songwriters.

Known for his storytelling and powerful live shows, multiaward winner Luke O’Shea along with his band Medicine Wheel, have a unique, yet classic Australian sound.

Spending his twenties eating up the world in what Luke describes as his “glorious wasted year,” Luke absorbed universal themes and personal stories that resonate deep within all human DNA. With an uncanny knack of cutting to the core, his razor lyrics combined steadfast skill and honesty leave the listener open and unguarded.

Luke O’Shea released his 4th CD ‘The Drovers Wife’ at this years 40th Tamworth Country Music Festival, and the standing room at each and every show reflects the reason we travel so far and wide to hear great country music. It's all in the stories and Luke is a master story teller.

“Many country music enthusiasts will agree, the ability to weave story and meaning into song is one of the traits of a gifted songsmith. That being the case, in tradesmen terms, Luke O’Shea is a master craftsman”
Matt Lawrence, Capital News 2012.

“Luke is a talent we need in this country not only for his music but for his understanding and vision”
Peter Clarke, Country Update, Nov 08.

Giirrakool Blues Festival imageWhats On Logo button image GIRRAKOOL BLUES FESTIVAL:
A new Blues Festival & BBQ set for 5th March 2016, fills a much needed event hole for music lovers and families of the Central Coast, Sydney and Newcastle.

Girrakool Blues Festival is an annual event named after the nearby waterfalls, and quite befittingly is Aboriginal for “Place of still water” ie Muddy Water, will be held annually on the first weekend in March by Xabc Entertainment.

What does USA Mississippi Hill-Country Blues Band “Cedric Burnside Project” have in common with Australian Legendary Blues Band “The Backsliders”, the Voice Finalist “Gail Page” and comedian “I’m so Tuff” George Smilovici have in common?
They are all set to play the hottest new blues festival in Australia– Girrakool Blues Festival & BBQ.

5th of March 2016 is shaping up to be a very special day at the Mt Penang Gardens on the Central Coast for the Girrakool Blues Festival & BBQ.

With the announcement of the 11 band line up, across 2 stages, there is something for everyone. It’s guaranteed to be not only a great event full of fantastic music, but a way of immersing ourselves in aboriginal heritage and culture, while feasting on soul food from our Slow-cooked Texan Style BBQ’s.

Mississippi, 4 time winner Blues Music Award’s Drummer of the Year Cedric Burnside Project will headline the Festival.

Australian Festival Favourites, The Backsliders, will provide the blues ‘not roots” of the festival.

Adding to the New Orleans theme, is keyboardist, Clayton Doley with his 10 piece big band Clayton Doley’s Bayou Billabong.

This years The Voice finalist Gail Page will belt out some powerful soul drenched blues, while Multi-award winning Aboriginal BB King, Buddy Knox Blues Band and Sultry singer Kate Lush will take to the Girrakool Stage, under the big Oak Tree in the Amphitheatre section of the Gardens.

Set among the Wondabyne Sculptures, rock away with the Dai Pritchard Blues Band.
Feel the heat of the duelling Organs with Carolyn “Pinecone” Packer and Alison Penny; Pine and Ali's Duelling Organs
.
Get your wings flapping for Chicken Train Skifflers, see winners of 2015 Bluesfest Busking Comp Grizzlee Train, and local alternate-Country Star Jessica Belle.

Host, and comedic genius that is George Smilovici will tie all these blistering acts together. In the same vein as Bill Murray hosted Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festivals, there’s bound to be a few well hidden adult laughs in-between acts.

In a New Orleans styled theme, the Girrakool Blues Festival will offer the Central Coast, and it’s visitors, a wonderful day of quality, international, national and local blues and roots acts, in a family friendly, relaxed atmosphere, all at a reasonable price.

Patrons can bring their rugs and chairs to enjoy the afternoon of world-class music, and soul food from our selectively picked stalls, including a unique American Southern style BBQ.
“Good music and good food is good for the soul,” says Bruce Johnson “ it’s what makes people feel good. This is why we’ve incorporated all the elements, music, food, great surrounds – it has all the positives and can only be enriching for the soul.”

Apart from the music it will have a strong Aboriginal content, with indigenous bands, Welcome to Country Ceremony, Women’s activities and with the potential of short tours to the Girrakool waterfalls and engravings.
“Central Coast is one of most indigenous rich areas of Australia. I think showing off our indigenous culture is vitally important to our community and provides another unique aspect to our festival.”

Girrakool will have a range of ticketing options available. Xabc Entertainment would like to make the festival a family fun event and will be providing Family Tickets at Early Bird prices. To further encourage this, children under 5 years can come to the event free of charge.

Registrations for Family and Adult Early Bird tickets are now taking place through our website:

Hardys Bay Club logo imageWhats On Logo button image SHANE NICHOLSON:
Winner of the 2015 ARIA award for Best Country Album, 8 Golden Guitars, 2 APRA Awards as well as 2 other ARIA Awards, Shane Nicholson is live at Hardys Bay Club on Saturday 12th March in the main room.

His award-winning album, 'Hell Breaks Loose' was written over several years and during a period of personal change

Nicholson hadn’t written any songs for the best part of a year, unusual for someone whose work rate has been prolific for these past 15 years. Near the end of his stay Nicholson sat beside the old mission church and songs started to pour out of him, including Hermannsburg: “That town, and Warren H. Williams, made a big difference to me in just a week” Hell Breaks Loose is Nicholson’s first recording of original material since the breakdown of his marriage to Kasey Chambers, with whom he recorded two ARIA Award-winning alt-country duet albums, Rattlin’ Bones (2008) and Wreck & Ruin (2012). Several songs address his new circumstances directly, including the superb ballad Single Fathers and the starting-over honesty of Secondhand Man. Others range across topics from the decline of a once-great city (Irons and Chains, about Detroit), living with depression (Weight of the World), to learning to choose which battles are worth the fight (Bury My Guns).

This is a show, and an album, not to be missed!
Tickets are $28 (+bf)

Strung Out band imageWhats On Logo button image STRUNG OUT TOUR:
Strung Out Australia & New Zealand Tour With Special Guests Pears

Southern California tech-punk quintet, Strung Out are back!

Announcing an extensive tour of Australia and New Zealand off the back of their latest album, Transmission.Alpha.Delta.

It’s been six long years since Strung Out’s last album. To go this long without new music may be a cause for alarm, but as vocalist Jason Cruz explains, “You have to live and experience other things in your life to have something to write about, to give value to what you’re singing about.”

Cruz & Co. were able to put their time off to good use, focusing their energy on the creation of Transmission.Alpha.Delta. Helping to map the original 90’s skate-punk territory more than 20 years ago, Strung Out are so adept at squeezing every ounce of creativity out of their punk-rock skill set that there is not yet a need for them to explore uncharted, genre-bending territory, continuing to unearth some of its most compelling riffs. Transmission.Alpha.Delta isn’t merely “classic” Strung Out, because it isn’t a replica of earlier material, however “its a release that is far meatier than anything the band has put forward in the past decade” declare Punk News.

It’s the urge to keep pushing to be modern and relevant and not rest on their laurels that continually sets Strung Out apart from so many of their nostalgia-obsessed peers, “reminding us that melodic punk can be so much more interesting when it’s being performed by top-notch musicians” proclaim No Echo
Its clear Strung Out are rejuvenated and ready for more.

In addition, New Orleans newest punk band, PEARS are confirmed as support. Coming from deep within the voodoo juju gris swamps of the French Quarter, it’s clear that PEARS are good at making music. Punk News proclaim, “PEARS is an awesome band and they have an incredibly refreshing and unique sound that they have brought to the hardcore subgenre,”. Their mixture of hardcore riffs, pop-punk melodies, and sludgy breaks create a sound that belongs to them, and only them! New Noise Magazine conceded that, “(Go To Prison) is hands down one of the best releases of 2014”.

Don’t miss your chance to see two of the scenes most exciting genre bending bands
