Live n Loud
A decade on and still drawing a full house, young local performers will shake things up with the next instalment of Live n Loud, set to take place at Taree’s Manning Entertainment Centre on Friday 14 September.
Organised, promoted and run by members of the Manning Youth Action & Interact team (MYAIT), Live n Loud is a popular quarterly fixture on the MidCoast calendar, and the September gig is gearing up to be bigger and better than ever.
A stellar line-up of local musicians that includes Keegan Gibson, Hudson Rose, Xavier Hunt, 5 percent panic, and Sox & Robbers will provide an exciting night of entertainment, with an Open Mic segment offered on the night for budding artists.
“Live n Loud is a safe and supportive environment for young performers to develop confidence and build a stage presence”, explained Lyndie Hepple, MidCoast Council’s Co-ordinator, Community Strengthening. “It’s also a great place for young people to come together socially, enjoy live music, and be part of something specifically relevant to youth in the MidCoast region”.
As well as organising the event from start to finish, sound on the night will be run by young people who will put their newly acquired skills into practice, having participated in a series of sound production workshops, supported by the MEC, in the lead-up to the 14 September gig.
“It’s incredible to see the breadth of talent from teenagers in our region, and the way the event has evolved into a professionally organised night of entertainment”, Lyndie added.
Music-lovers of all ages are invited to come along, and for a gold coin donation, enjoy some great music and soak up the atmosphere at the MEC, 6pm to 9pm on Friday 14 September.
Live n Loud is a supervised, drug and alcohol free event, made possible through the support of the NSW Government’s Indent program, part of Music NSW.
