| BRUCE MATHISKE AUSTRALIAN TOUR:
Bruce Mathiske is back with a new album Six String Anthology and Australian tour
World acclaimed guitar virtuoso and composer Bruce Mathiske is back with a new album Six String Anthology and Australian tour booked. Mathiske, one of this country’s most adventurous, creative and dazzlingly skilled guitarists, has been off the road since 2013.
Taking a well-deserved break from the sometimes creatively stifling album release and tour cycle, Bruce has instead been concentrating on composing on a larger scale for other instruments and orchestras – whilst on the personal front, facing the shock of his wife’s cancer diagnosis and supporting her throughout her treatment. But 2018 finds Mathiske back and eagerly looking forward to playing in front of live audiences again with a new, and quite different release ready to share. And Bruce’s wife? She’s doing just great.
Bruce’s new 12 track offering Six String Anthology is unmistakably Mathiske - with melodic and vibrant sounds centering around original compositions - this time in the key of each string of the guitar. The idea for the album came about via a chance meeting with the legendary conductor and music educator Richard Gill AO – who after hearing one of Bruce’s solo guitar pieces was the one to suggest the initial concept. At first the idea didn’t resonate with Bruce, but somehow, some 12 months later, he found himself with a collection of compositions that saw Richard’s suggestion come to fruition. Bruce says of Six String Anthology “When I play these pieces it is truly me and I have never felt so at one with myself, my guitar and my music.”
With Mathiske refreshed, inspired and eagerly anticipating a return to the live stage, his upcoming tour dates are not to be missed. See below for full information. Six String Anthology will be released on Friday April 6 through MGM. Pre-orders are available here.

| BON BUT NOT FORGOTTEN:
2018 Tour Announced
Bon But Not Forgotten is the closest you will ever get to AC/DC in the 70's!
This show brings together some of the world's greatest rockers to pay tribute to the legend behind one of the world's greatest ever bands, AC/DC, and their iconic singer Bon Scott who celebrates his Birthday on July 9th.
Featuring a knock-out line-up, including past members of AC/DC and other Aussie rock icons, The Angels and Electric Mary, this band knows how to electrify a crowd with its explosive repertoire of AC/DC's greatest hits.
Not content with just performing a 'Best Of' set, the band also focuses on some gems that aren't commercial in nature, but true fans will love to hear them live, some for the first time. This show replicates the sound, style and passion of AC/DC, without pretence.
It is quite simply THE most natural sounding AC/DC performance of any band, other than AC/DC themselves. There is no other band on earth that can perform the show like these carefully selected musicians.
The line-up features the consummate talents of:
* Simon Wright - Joined AC/DC after the departure of Phil Rudd in 1983
* Phil Emmanuel - Considered one of the greatest guitar players on Earth, along with his brother Tommy, they have been adorned accolades from famous guitar players, the world over.
* James Morley - Former bassist with ARIA Hall of Fame band, The Angels, and guitarist with Choirboys.
* RUSTY - One of Australia's hardest rocking front men from ELECTRIC MARY
* Brett Williams - Lead guitarist for iconic Aussie rockers Choirboys (NSW dates only).
* Toni Currenti - ex drummer for AC/DC and various Vanda & Young Projects including Stevie Wright (international hit "Evie") and John Paul Young (hit singles "Yesterday's Hero" and "I Hate the Music") (NSW dates only)
Supporting on all New South Wales and Victorian shows is Melbourne's Whole Lotta Rosie - a band already known for electrifying crowds with its fierce line-up of Aussie rockers.
Whole Lotta Rosie will be performing one of AC/DC's classic album's 'Back In Black' in full, belting out the signature tunes including 'Shook Me All Night Long' and 'Shoot To Thrill'.
The band recently performed two sold out shows - the first at The Gershwin Room in iconic rock n roll venue The Espy, and most recently at Melbourne's The Corner Hotel raising funds for the Dementia Foundation and celebrating the life of Malcolm Young who succumbed to the disease in November 2017.

| THE WOMAN IN BLACK:
The Most Terrifying Live Theatre Experience In The World comes to the Central Coast for six thrilling performances!
Unanimously acclaimed by the critics - now in its 28th year in London’s West End – more than 7 million people having seen the play.
The Woman In Black is a terrifying trip through time into a tragic and ghostly world where the horrors of the supernatural combine with the power and intensity of live theatre to send shock waves through the audience with splendid thrills and chills.
In this brilliant adaptation of Susan Hill’s horror novella, a traumatized man (Paul Russell) recruits a young actor (Declan Dowling) to help him exorcise the ghost of the Woman in Black.
This incredible production has two amazing actors who tell their story in an old-fashioned way, relying on atmosphere, on hints, glimpses and suggestions, heard and sometimes only half seen, as well as the most spectacular soundscape created for community theatre.
The Woman In Black chills the audience as it builds to its terrifying climax.
This production is only being staged for six performances – four in the Don Craig Room at Laycock Street Community Theatre Thursday 23rd August, Friday 24th August and Saturday 25th August at 7.30pm and a 2pm matinee on Saturday 25th August and two performances at The Art House Wyong on Saturday 1st September at 2pm and 7.30pm.
Tickets are available on line from both venues.
