Congratulations to our foster band Charlie Mayfair for winning the Sounds Festival Foster Band competition!
Charlie Mayfair and Ball Park Music
Added to the Sunset Sounds 2011 Line Up
Thanks to the efforts of
At the beginning of November Sunset Sounds came together with a bunch of Brisbane music’s most supportive media outlets, to shine the light on local artists through the Sunset Sounds Foster Band Initiative.
A month later the Brisbane music community confirmed our previous observations about the passion and talent of local artists and their fans in the Sunshine State. With thousands and thousands of votes streaming in for the fostered bands, it was a very tight margin that separated Charlie Mayfair, Ball Park Music, Inland Sea and The Liars Chair. In the end, six-piece percussive folk-pop outfit, Charlie Mayfair and progressive indie rockers Ball Park Music just got there, scoring the two opening spots on the Sunset Sounds 2011 line up alongside Interpol, Public Enemy, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Klaxons, The National and heaps more!
Sunset Sounds would like to send a huge thank you to:
Inland Sea, My Fiction, Velociraptor, Blame Ringo, Slug Guts, The Liars Chair
Ball Park Music, Lion Island, The Belligerents, Charlie Mayfair, Rave Magazine, Courier Mail, Scene Magazine, Sunday Mail, Four Thousand, Groove Magazine, Bats Magazine, Biscuit Magazine, Brisbane Times and Life Music Media for their involvement and enthusiasm for this initiative and their continued support of local original music and Sunset Sounds.
