Southwest Sound by the Sea


South Regional Tafe, along with the City of Busselton Youth Services are presenting for Make Music Day a show of experimental music making in the incredible Youth Precinct Centre on the Busselton Foreshore.

In the 1st every year of running Music Industry at the Busselton Campus, songs have been made, creativity shared and souls lifted by the joy of music making.

With this in mind the Certificate II Music Industry students invite you to come to the space to watch them perform, and to see how a full live sound setup and PA comes to life.

Expect performances by solo performers Josephine Murray-Kilkenny, Olivia Avery and Baylea Hodges, as well as performances by young rockers Midnight Sun, and Avant Garde pop outfit Toxic Clover.

If watching young musicians project sounds through the town and out to sea wasn’t enough, there will also be a special performance of meditative music performed live by Sound Relaxation (Ute Coleman).

Please feel free to pop your head in, ask questions and to get involved. If come around lunchtime lecturer Chris Archibald (Chris Archee) will even give you a lesson on how to drop tracks on the DJ decks!

See you there.

Glee Club at the Pub – Burnley Brewing


Many things go with beer; food, sports and friends name just a few. With that in mind Burnley Brewing has teamed up with Australian Vocal specialist Vicky Jacobs for their first Glee Club at the Pub to celebrate International Make Music Day 2018.

From 8:30pm the ultimate group karaoke session will take place in the shadow of the brew tanks accompanied by Burnley’s renowned hand rolled pastas, burgers, beer snacks and main meals. And while joining us for dinner beforehand is recommended (bookings essential), Glee Club at the Pub has only three rules; no solos; no show ponies; and enjoy as many drinks as you like!

At Glee Club at the Pub, this means bellowing pub classics from the 60s to today – anything from John Farnham to The Beatles to Beyonce! It doesn’t matter if you’ve never sung before or you’re a choir junkie, with all the harmonies and melodies led by Jacobs and her keyboard, this pop-up choir is sure to be a blast.

This is a free event. Book your table for dinner and drinks beforehand at
