Mudgeeraba will again play host to a laid back series of spring and summertime gigs.
Gold Coast Music Award winners Leopold’s Treat and Jason McGregor have shows in the series along with Moreton – fresh from wooing crowds at BIGSOUND this year.
Loop master Benny D Williams and uke-driven folk duo Eizenberg Moon are on the bill alongside solo singer-songwriters like Hailey Calvert and Sean Fitzgerald.
Summertime Sessions in the Village will run from Friday 28 October until Friday 9 December and City of Gold Coast Councillor Glenn Tozer said it’s as much about economic development as it is about sharing the City’s musical talent with new audiences.
“Mudgeeraba businesses love Summertime Sessions and the local Chamber of Commerce has been really supportive,” Glenn explained.
“This year we’re trying to build on the momentum of the past few series, but also finding ways to partner local emerging musicians with acts who have links to the Gold Coast returning to the city on tour.”
“We hope this will build cultural capacity of course, but also that families will come down to Mudgeeraba Village for a Friday night meal, and maybe return for our unique Village ambience mid-week or over the weekend,” Glenn said.
Summertime Sessions in the Village takes place 5.30 – 7.30pm in Cuddihy Park, Mudgeeraba with plenty of food options from local traders.
Summertime Sessions in the Village full lineup is as follows:
28 October | Luke Pauley + Wandering Eyes
4 November | Kimbal Imaz-Hirst + Leopold’s Treat
11 November | Hailey Calvert + Sean Fitzgerald
18 November | Eizenberg Moon + Benny D Williams
