Mu­sos side by side

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - WHAT’S ON -

SIDE SPLIT­TERS are a group of male mu­sos on the Coast who have got each oth­ers’ backs. The group of 80 mu­si­cians and en­ter­tain­ers meet once a month for lunch to catch up and ban­ter about the in­dus­try. Side split­ters pres­i­dent John ‘‘Cat­fish’’ Purser (pic­tured) says if one mu­si­cian falls on hard times, the rest are there to lend a help­ing hand. ‘‘Most mu­sos through­out their lives hit a hard time,’’ says Cat­fish. ‘‘As you get older, you need help. We will chip in and pay bills if they need it.’’ Side split­ters will host a fundraiser on Satur­day night to boost their kitty so they can keep giv­ing back to those who need it. Cat­fish & The Dee­jays will play live with Jon Skye Band and Cat­fish says there will be plenty more en­ter­tain­ment on of­fer. ‘‘It should be a great night. We are hop­ing to raise at least $1500.’’

The Side split­ters’ fundraiser plays Broadbeach Bowls Club on Satur­day night.
