After a great kick-start from our Summer Showcase event at the Rifle Brigade Hotel in February, we again return to the Golden Vine Hotel for the Winter edition – another brilliant line-up is in store, across two stages, presenting 16 acts, all of whom will be part of our November Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival in 2018.
The packed list of acts confirmed to perform at this year’s BB&RMF Winter Showcase/Fundraiser event includes some of Bendigo’s best, along with some fresh faces and exciting sounds from the larger blues, soul, jazz and original music circuits who’ve put their respective hands up to support our not-for-profit community music festival. Here’s some of the acts playing the Vine on July 16: Jarrah Thompson, Messin’ ‘Round, Wayne Jury, Spiritus, William Alexander, Ben J Carter, Dave Diprose, Mariah McCarthy, Pat Ward, Jarrod Shaw and Sons of The Blues… with more to be announced!
As always, these artists are donating their time and talents for this Fundraiser, as do the Festival’s volunteer committee and crew, to help boost the kitty to pay for the Festival itself, to be held on November 8-11, 2018.
To continue to fund this predominantly free festival, your support and assistance is needed. So spread the word and bring a posse to the Golden Vine Hotel Bendigo on Sunday 15 July and help grow the burgeoning music scene we’ve managed to revitalise together over the last 8 years or so in Central Victoria.
On behalf of our local venues, local and visiting artists, and all of us who enjoy a wide range of live music to choose from on a weekly basis, ‘Thank You’ for your ongoing support of grass-roots music events!
Tickets for the Winter Showcase event are available at the door on the day and are $15 for adults, $5 for under-18s (with under-12s free). Friends of the Festival (FOF Members) enter free – FOF card must be presented.
The live music will start at 12pm sharp and continue through till 8pm.
