Scarborough Originals mark 2 new date Sunday May 7th

Scarborough Originals May 7
The First Scarborough Originals were deemed a great success.  After the onslaught of Cyclone Debbie throughout the week, the first event was welcomed with clear blue skies and happy music goers at Jamieson Park.
The event was well received within the community with well over 400 attending.  Redcliffe Rotary Sunrise ran the sausage sizzle, a live artist painted side of stage and The ECO ran the live music.   Volunteers rallied to set up, fundraise and pack down; it was a real community minded event.

All ages and walks of life attended with the event proving to be very family friendly allowing parents a more relaxed atmosphere to watch live music and have their children play.  The four bands all brought to the event a style, groove and originality that was well received with attentive audiences.  It didn’t take long for the dancing to begin and for the groove to take over.

Those attending were treated to folk, pop, blues, rock, dub and reggae genres with all bands performing and interacting with the crowds.  All artists were paid and the event was funded through the community and donations.  Mon Komo Hotel came on board as a major sponsor supporting the event and the local community attending dug deep purchasing raffle tickets that assisted in funding the first Originals. The community spirit, mind and energy was overwhelming. Organisers could not have been more impressed with the generosity of the attendees.

“It’s so important to bring together the community and under the banner of supporting the local arts scene is such a great way to create a community mind…  Donations are essential to this event, it is a crowd funded event, we were impressed with the appreciation and the generosity.  We believe that as long as the community keeps supporting The Originals in Scarborough we can see the event having a long lifespan in supporting the creative scene.”  Kim Ferguson, Event Co-ordinator.
