Our local musicians have been hit very hard by recent gig cancellations, many have seen their primary source of income disappear almost overnight.
In light of that, we've set up a couple of initiatives to try and help...
Live Instore Gigs with Streaming
Firstly, we've set up small stages at both our Myaree and Wangara stores and are inviting local musicians to come and play a short set. We will help you stream this to your social audience (who are probably unable to see you play live currently). This will enable you to promote any music releases, merchandise or other revenue sources to help supplement your lost gig income. if you're a full-time musician and would like to play, please contact us.
WA Lost Gigs - Go Fund Me
Secondly, we have set up a GoFundMe page https://bit.ly/WAlostgigs) in order to raise additional funds to give back to the local musicians that have supported our business over the last 20 years. This will be overseen by an independent accounting firm (Sorrento Strategic Music) and 100% of the money raised will go back to artists (including those whose play instore).
An independent panel of local industry professionals will then oversee any additional distribution of funds. Please donate if you can and let's support each other through this difficult time.
