Great live music is almost as much a part of TRBC as great craft beer (almost!) We’re so passionate about it that we’ve brought over 150 live music shows to the brewery since 2018 – for a little town that’s pretty awesome.
We’ve had Shannon Noll, Catherine Britt, Andrew Swift plus tribute shows including the Beatles, Elvis and AC/DC. We also take our role in promoting awesome local talent really seriously.
An often-overlooked part of putting on great live music is the need for good quality sound gear. For us, this has been a challenge since day one as it wasn’t something we could fund as a small business trying to make ends meet – these things can be more expensive than we thought.
That’s why we were so excited late last year when we received funding from the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications to buy our own, on site, PA system. This means we can now attract more great live acts and not have to burden them with carrying around their own equipment. We can also welcome in bigger acts who need a more professional set up.
The new PA comes at the perfect time for us as we plan to move to our new venue with its purpose built entertainment space. It means we can continue to keep great live music coming to Tumut and make a space for our talented locals to get the experience and exposure they deserve.
Thanks to Better Music in Canberra for taking such great care of us, they even let Tim win the arm wrestle 😉
