Jessica Grimley, Caleb Lafaitele, Marty Gray and Myles Larsen – all students at the TAFE – will perform original and classic rock songs with each performer bringing their own style do the event.
The Music students have enlisted the help from their fellow TAFE Queensland Gold Coast peers with the Diploma of Sound Production students taking care of the audio and lighting for the event.
TAFE Queensland Gold Coast General Manger, Aaron Devine said the event is a great way for students to not only showcase their talent, but to also gain real-world experience in hosting a show.
“Hosting and preforming at an event is the best way for students to learn the particulars of the industry, giving them a competitive advantage when entering the workforce,” he said.
Mr Devine said TAFE Queensland Gold Coast emphasises the importance of work experience while studying, ensuring students obtain well-rounded skills so they have a higher chance of employment.
