COVid 4740 Community Resilience Project

Sugar Town Music developed the idea of a Concept Album, engaging local artists who provided their time and skills on a voluntary basis, demonstrating resilience and solidarity within the local music community to deliver an even stronger message of hope, humanity, resilience, and respect for our cultural diversity. The concept Album COViD 4740 represents experiences both common to all and some of those unique experiences of COVID-19, and is dedicated to supporting our local community to navigate through our current and future challenges.

The development of the album facilitated 54 local Musicians of the Mackay region, a number of music industry professionals across Australia and Social scientists’ whom have endorsed the concept, process and have committed to evaluating the outcomes.

Over the course of three days, Sugar Town Music will be holding live shows at The Seabreeze Hotel at Lamberts Beach to celebrate the launch of the Concept Album. Sales from both the live shows and CD purchases will go towards Support Act, Samartian House & the Alive organisation to support the work they do in mental health & well-being for the arts industry (Support Act), Domestic violence in our local community (Samaritan House) and in Youth suicide prevention in our local community (Alive).

“Some Memories Never Die”:
An Evening of Words and Music

2021 Tour

Jeff Lang has built a reputation for making startling and influential music that is accomplished, intricate, gutsy, melodic and loaded with soul. Often taking unexpected turns, he has consistently inspired his audiences by creating a stylistically diverse catalogue of over 30 albums.

But with every well-credentialed artistic soul, evolving and diving into the unknown is a step that is never too far away and so in 2019 Jeff sat down and began to write what would become his first book.

Some Memories Never Die”, the resulting memoir of three decades on the road, contains memories of gigs where the pay was akin to blood money, reflections on how the road’s twists and turns can be lightened by the presence of fellow travellers and occasionally darkened by them too. Each purchase of the book comes bundled with a download code for an exclusive 22 track album of re-recorded versions of Jeff Lang classics explicitly produced for the book’s publication.

To celebrate the book’s release, Jeff will hit the highway for a 37 date national tour running from March through to July with each show combining music with an ‘in conversation’ and Q&A session.

The Rubens hit Mackay as part of their biggest Australian tour to date!

LIVE IN LIFE TOUR 2020
The Rubens are extremely excited to announce their biggest Australian tour to date – the LIVE IN LIFE tour. Supported by triple j, the 27-date run will see the five-piece play a combination of metro and regional venues from May through July in celebration of their infectious summer jam, ‘Live In Life’.

 

The past year has seen The Rubens travel to North America, UK & Europe for headline tours, perform and release their MTV Unplugged Live In Melbourne album, slay the main stage unveiling their collaboration with punk hip-hop star Vic Mensa at Splendour In The Grass AND between all of that, bunker down to write and focus on new music.

As part of their Chucka Bucka’s initiative, the Menangle Mad Men have also embarked on 3 regional tours in the past 18 months – and the Live In Life Tour is another tip of the hat to our music loving friends who may not live near a city – with the band revisiting some old regional favourites as well as some new towns they’ve never played before.

2018 proved to be a landmark year for The Rubens, which saw the release of their third album LO LA RU, including hits ‘Never Ever feat. Sarah’ (2 x Platinum), ‘Million Man’ (Gold) and ‘God Forgot’, a mammoth headline tour across Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Europe and supporting P!NK on her massive 42-date sell out arena tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Don’t miss your chance to see The Rubens live in 2020!

SATURDAY 5TH JUNE 2021

Unlikely, unexpected, unforgettable, unique, not to be missed!

The musical uniting of Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham (The Waifs) is as unscripted as it is unforeseen.

The unpredictable unfolding of recent events has been the undoing of many as the world has adjusted to an unfamiliar reality. Undeterred and unsatisfied with being unproductive, Felicity and Josh unearthed an unpaved road forward and undertook the journey united, uncovering an uncanny musical unison as they left no song unsung.

Until now, this union has remained undercover, unmasked only to select audiences under the age of 10. Both of Felicity’s daughters were unanimous in their unbridled praise.
“So not uncool” Tia, age 9
“Unicorn” Ellie, age 7

In the face of an uncertain future, music uncontrived and untainted by the demands of fashion will forever remain undefeated. Understated but never unsophisticated, unpretentious and unlike anything else, Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham are poised to unleash songs and stories of undeniable beauty upon hearts and ears. Unless you uncork this fine wine, drink for yourself and understand, you will be unsatisfied and your life will be unhappy.
