Immersing the Children

2014 - I initiated a series of concerts directed at exposing children to top quality live music performances  The aim: introducing them to music their parents had gone to see and enjoyed pre-children. The tag line for the event: “Kids, you’re allowed to bring parents”

During a lunch meeting at cafe Deus Ex Machina in Camperdown, an employee at the cafe made a fuss of being a massive fan and regularly attending my sold out performances at the Basement during the years of my residency. His boss overheard the conversation and approached me interested in offering live music at the cafe. I explained I was only interested in hosting concerts that centred around kids experiencing the same standard of live performances as their parents, at a kid friendly licensed venue offering quality meals and exceptional entertainment.
