After 25 years of live music performance and jams, the Bangalow Brackets open mic night will move from the Bangalow Hotel to a new venue, the Bangalow Bowling Club, located down the road.
Brackets organiser and musician, Dr Baz, says that he secured the new venue after being told by the pub’s management that ‘the push to provide live music is not being supported by the community as much as I had hoped, and I cannot justify the amount we are spending on music any longer’.
He added, ‘I wanted to thank you for all the work you’ve done in the last year helping organise and run the brackets nights, as well as playing the live sets in the hotel’.
Dr Baz told his social media followers, ‘Bangalow Bowling Club has generously stepped up to support us, in recognition of our proud 25 year history of creative music making in Bangalow and the valuable service we have supplied to the community’.
‘From Wednesday January 18, Bangalow Brackets will move to a new home at the Bangalow Bowling Club.
‘We encourage all our supporters to help us establish a vibrant new open mic evening at the Bowls Club, now to be held every Wednesday from 7.30–10.30pm, with sign on from 7pm, for a 15 minute set.
‘So Bangalow Brackets lives on, as the most supportive and creative open mic in the Northern Rivers region’.
