This year, we've pulled out all the stops with our membership video, teaming up with some of the state’s most prevalent performers and avid music lovers to give the rundown on exactly what Music Victoria is about and just how far your membership money goes in the 2018 ‘Live and Breathe Music’ Membership video.
Enlisting the Amateur Hour team to produce the video, the script was written by Music Victoria’s very own Laura Imbruglia who also stars in the hilarious video. Touching on grant applications, industry coaching services, mentorship, workshops, master classes and discounts, the video stars musicians Ecca Vandal, Sophie Koh, Benny Walker, Stella Angelico, Jake Mason (Cookin’ On Three Burners), Slattz (King Parrot), Lauren Hammel (High Tension/TFS), Pablo Alvarado (Mesa Cosa), Broads, Andrew Swann, Ben Franz (The Waifs/Brooke Russell), plus the Music Victoria staff Patrick Donovan, Al Parkinson, Nick Cooper and Sarah De Borrelearning and explaining the value of being a Music Victoria member.
