The Cooloola Coast Youth Activity Project  (CCYAP) busking at the markets is giving participants valuable performance practice. Kids are invited to come and have a jam with Rob and the group. Be part of the music by having a tap on the drums or shake of the tambourine.

President Jess Milne would like to thank everyone who has made donations to the market stall. “We are always on the lookout for items, so if you are having a de-clutter then throw your unwanted items our way.”

Even though the spectators were down for the Sound of Teen Spirit concert, enthusiasm was high from the performers.

“It is always a highlight to see youth for the first time onstage. There was one person who hadn’t even held a microphone a month ago that got up and did a self-written solo with no music,” Jess was excited to report.

The event is based around confidence development and gaining stage experience. The night was a huge success as performers went home buzzed up and they’re pumped for another concert.

Thank you to all the YAP volunteers for their time, as well as Casey and Anna in the kitchen, Teah taking photos, Emme and Nelson as MCs and performers Zach, Braden, TJ, Tash, Paige, Sienna and Marley.
