The Dock Mooloolaba and local musicians are joining together launching “Musos for Mates” to raise funds for mates in need and local charities.
The Dock Mooloolaba’s Jared Hart said he and musician John Veloso said they had both been thinking about doing some fundraising for local causes, so they decided to join forces.
“We love being part of the Sunshine Coast community but there are people who need just a little bit of help, so we wanted to do something,” Jared said.
John Veloso said he had been talking to other musos for a while about doing something for charity, then Jared and I put our heads together and it just crew from there.
“It just took off – in just a couple of days we had more than a full line up of musicians and Jared had got support from a couple of breweries and it just grew from there,” John, who was a youth worker before he started playing music professionally, said.
“The first event will be raising money for our friend Cheryl, a wife and mum to four beautiful kids, who was diagnosed with cervical cancer for the second time last year. Cheryl has undergone radiation and chemo to stabilise the tumour growth but is now unable to work,” John said.
“The first ‘Musos for Mates’ event will be on Tuesday 10th September, and the aim is to have five different events, each raising money for different local causes each year,” Jared said.
The line up for the first event includes: Smooth Vibes Duo, Cory Carlyon, Stuart White, Adam Leatherbarrow, Bec Findlay, The Letter Elle, Reverend Billy, Jacob Raymond, Joe Man Murphy, Sam Bannink, Bay Window, Toby Goldsmith, Ollie Murk, John Veloso, Tapestry Sounds, Nyssa Ray, Craig Madden, Banned FTC, Euphoria Under Fire and the Eddie Duarte Band.
There will be two kegs of beer for sale during the event, from Stone & Wood and Australian Beer Co Ale House, and all proceeds as well as donations. We will also have a raffle for a great Tanglewood Guitar, courtesy of Moloolaba Music for just $5 a ticket. Proceeds from beer sales, raffle and donations will be given to Cheryl.
“We look forward to seeing everyone here for what we think will be a great night,” Jared and John said.
