Great to see this article in the Ensign and music events coordinator Michaela's response. The Gallery Gigs have been such a success, have engaged many young musicians and music lovers and clearly have a growing following. Thanks to all involved, and to Michaela for inspiration, energy and follow through!
As part of The Benalla Festival, North East Artisans are ending The Gallery Gigs for 2017 with a bang! Get your disco boots and mirror ball earrings out because The Sugar Fed Leopards are coming to town!
This year's theme for the festival is 'Good Vibrations,' a celebration of music and dance, and The Leopards shall deliver just that, with the added bonus of shiny costumes, sparkly hair, sequinned shoes and the hottest dance moves you'll find this side of the Moon.
Grandma and toddler friendly - and everyone else in between!
Be there or be beige.
Tickets $10 to feed the leopards.
Carla from Broken River Writers and Michaela from Gallery Gigs have put together a festive creative program for the Benalla Festival featuring the Sugar Fed Leopards.
"Come and learn how to craft words into songs with the absolutely brilliant Sugar Fed Leopards on Friday, 10th November, 4-6pm. Don't forget $5 for supper.
And then, stick around for their Gallery Gig, 7-10 pm, $10 tix, which is an incredibly low price for an amazing musical experience"
*Special announcement* Put this date in your diary folks - On Saturday the 9th of September, North East Artisans will be holding its first official 'Gallery Gig.' This is not a test run! Repeat, this is not a test run. The Gallery Gigs aim to promote local and guest musicians of a high calibre, in a unique space where you will be surrounded by local artwork. There will be drinks at bar prices and a modest door charge of $10.
Who's playing you ask....?
