Bundy Gig Guide promotes live music

Bundy Gig Guide has had a stellar year of local music promotion.
Bundy Gig Guide has had a stellar year of local music promotion.

Bundy Gig Guide has hit some fantastic milestones in just 15 months.

With 4500 Facebook likes, 17 consecutive weeks of listing more than 50 live gigs in Bundy, $1000 in free tickets, vouchers and prizes and over 30 feature articles on local musicians, it's been a full on year.

The team are ready to take it to the next level in 2020, with a massive, free family-friendly charity concert event planned for Bargara on 1 February 2020 (details coming soon).

The Facebook page was first established when Bundy Gig Guide’s Steve Price found himself missing the vibrant music scene of Melbourne when he moved to Bundaberg with his family.

He also found it difficult to find a comprehensive gig list located in one easy-to-find spot of all the fantastic live music that he knew was being played every weekend.

So spurred on by some muso mates, Steve started up the Bundy Gig Guide in September 2018.

This one man show grew to become a group of four with Steve coordinating the motley crew of volunteers which includes Tony, taking care of the weekly guides and clever quips, Jess on graphic design and behind the scenes organisation and Amanda who casts an editing eye over the guides and writes feature articles.

Steve said his goals for 2020 included bringing more live music acts to Bundaberg and busting past 5000 likes on Facebook.

Steve and the team are always working to make the Bundy Gig Guide the best it can be.

If you would like your live gigs added to the list or if you’re a muso who would like to have your band and music featured here in Bundaberg Now, just message the Bundy Gig Guide crew on Facebook.
