This Friday, February 17 at the Tea Club there will be a very special Young Coasties mentor showcase for Burradise 2017 (Culburra Beach Music Festival) featuring Sian Parmenter from Stella Studioz and The Groove.
The fun kicks off at 6pm and tickets are $15 pre-slae through South Coast Tickets or $20 at the door on the night.
Sian Parmenter from Stella Studioz has been a professional singer for many years and is a highly recognised and sought after performer.
She has worked in the entertainment and event management business for over 10 years. Sian is recognised for her outstanding performance abilities and teaches these techniques along with the principles of Voiceology to the students of Stella Studioz. Sian is currently singing and performing in the duo Stella Girlz.
The Groove comprises Young Coasties mentor and Culburra Beach singer songwriter, Jaden Spence, flamenco and classical guitarist extordinaire, Sako Dermanjian and Damo on afro drums and elemental grooves.
The creative forces of Armenia, Woonona and Culburra Beach will combine into the amorphous fusion that is The Groove playing flavours from flamenco to blues and Latin to Israeli and all sorts in between.
They jam, fuse cultures, laugh, play fast, sing and most importantly they have fun.
The doors will open at 6pm for dinner, Sian will be performing from 7pm and then The Groove will take to the stage from 8pm.
The concert is a preliminary event leading up to the Burradise/Young Coasties project.
Jaden Spence is one of the mentors on the Young Coasties project, where young aspiring musicians, singers and bands are being given the opportunity to participate in a new creative original songwriting and music development program.
The creative workshop program will be held on weekends during February to May at Beach Tracks Studio in Culburra Beach.
“This new project is exactly what young singers and musicians need on the South Coast as most opportunities are only available in Sydney or Melbourne and are way too expensive for most young artists,” Spence said.
Applications closed last Sunday and successful applicants will be notified soon.
