Mu­sic boost

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SHOWS -

LIVE mu­sic around Aus­tralia will get a boost from the Fed­eral Govern­ment with the cre­ation of a new of­fice ded­i­cated to its pro­mo­tion. La­bor has promised to spend $560,000 in the next three years on the National Live Mu­sic Of­fice, to run within the Aus­tralasian Per­form­ing Right As­so­ci­a­tion. Re­cently ap­pointed national live mu­sic co­or­di­na­tor Ianto Ware will man­age it. Fed­eral Arts Min­is­ter Tony Burke says the of­fice will look at key pol­icy, reg­u­la­tory and process re­forms that will sup­port a ro­bust live mu­sic scene. Live mu­sic am­bas­sadors in­clud­ing Katie Noo­nan, Suffa from the Hill­top Hoods, Stavros Yian­noukas from Blue­juice, Kav Tem­per­ley, Kevin Mitchell from Jebe­diah, Dave Faulkner from the Hoodoo Gu­rus, Leah Flana­gan and De­wayne Everett­smith will sup­port the new national of­fice.
