Music comes back to the Byron Services

I’m old enough and been here long enough to have actually been to live music gigs at the Byron Services Club. It’s been well over 20 years since anyone played there, so it’s a bit of a nostalgic thrill to have Byron supergroup The Feramones bring music back to the people. Fresh from a sellout Ausralia and NZ tour with his other band (10CC), Rick Fenn and the rest of those fine-smelling Feramones play the Byron Services Club on Sunday 29 November. Performing songs from the 70s and 80s and the classic rock for which they are renowned.

Music from the Conservatorium to play the Northern

With their songs at the ready and musical instruments by their side, Diploma of Music students at the Northern Rivers Conservatorium are set to tear down the house at the annual Academy Showcase.The event is a chance for students to show off skills developed throughout the year and to perform their original musical compositions to a live audience. Northern Rivers Conservatorium’s head of academy music Alicia Charleston said the showcase is set to be a wonderful event, with a range of musical styles and fusions on show. ‘These original compositions have been bubbling in an alchemical cauldron to create a strange brew. One moment jazz dances a tango with the blues, the next, Afro-funk fusion hits the stage,’ Alicia said. From ballads from the love-lorn heart to dream pop and punk alongside folk, roots and soulful originals. Former alumni to graduate from the academy include the likes of Blue King Brown frontwoman Nattali Rize, and Dolphin Award winners Kellie Knight from Kellie Knight and the Daze and Tom Avery aka Blakboi. Northern Rivers Conservatorium’s Diploma of Music course is currently open for application. Prospective students can find out more by visiting www.nrcac.edu.au. The Academy Showcase will be held on Thursday at the Northern Hotel 7.30–9.30 pm. Tickets cost $18.40 for adults, $15.30 for children and $47.00 for a family ticket (prices include booking fee).

For more information or to book a ticket, contact NRC Reception by phoning 6621 2266.

Nuclear Submarines – just a foot in the door

In the next few months we will hear a lot about how superior nuclear-powered submarines are. Vice Admiral Mike Noonan is even claiming superior stealth characteristics – which is simply not true. Yes, they tend to be faster. This is great if you want to go thousands of kilometres in a matter of days. But they are also much more expensive.
