Music is proven to heal the soul, create positive vibes, and is good for your general well being.
After a car accident I turned to music in my rehabilitation. I have always loved listening and playing my music, but now I truly understood the power of it’s healing.
Due to not being able to return to the job I once had, as a Television Audio Director (ABC TV, on shows such as Studio 22, Live and Sweaty, and Roy and HG’s Club Buggery), I turned to promoting and am dedicated to keeping the music scene in Australia pumping.
Xabc brings quality blues and roots music from all over the world for your enjoyment.
We also run the Girrakool Blues Festival & BBQ named after the nearby waterfalls, and quite befittingly is Aboriginal for “Place of still water” ie Muddy Waters, will be held on the first weekend in March every year.
In a New Orleans styled theme, the Festival will feature a wonderful weekend of quality, international, national and local blues and roots acts, within the beautiful surrounds of Mt Penang Garden Parklands, in a family friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
Patrons can bring their rugs and chairs to enjoy the world-class music, and soul food from our selectively picked stalls, including a unique American Southern style BBQ, and local artist stalls.
On tour, we believe that the music comes first, the artists are treated with due respect, in a professional yet enjoyable atmosphere.
Past tours include the legendary artists Charlie Musselwhite, Joe Louis Walker and John Hammond.
Xabc pride’s itself on lending it’s services to the promotion of the community based festival, Patonga Blues Across the Bay Festival, in Beautiful Patonga, on the NSW Central Coast.
