All great things come from simple ideas and that is exactly how the Sound of Teen Spirit concert has been developed.

Local Tin Can Bay teen, Braden Gray, wanted an opportunity to “get onstage and get some live playing experience,” so he took his idea to the Cooloola Coast Youth Activity Project and it grew from there at a rapid rate.

Chairperson Jess Milne said, “CCYAP aims at providing activities that local youth want, so we are excited to be able to organise this event. Community support has been fantastic and we were able to hire a venue through funds from the Gympie Regional Council Community Assistance Grants Program.”

The evening will be a showcase of local teen musicians who will play a mix of hits, as well as original songs.

“To have an opportunity to display talents as well as playing in front of a live crowd will be a real confidence booster,” said artist Shervawn Wilson. Shervawn is a youth member of CCYAP and has worked hard to secure acts, as well as designing the poster.

The night will feature bands ’84, Loss of Autonomy and Synaesthesia, as well as artists from local schools and the AICM.

TJ Gray from Loss of Autonomy exclaimed that he “was nervous but excited about playing for the first time onstage.”

Jess has also eluded that there will be “a little extra something happening on the night that will ensure that the event will have the X Factor.” ‘Like’ the Cooloola Coast Youth Activity Project on Facebook to keep up to date with all the latest news.

So keep Saturday, November 26 free to come on down and support the stars of tomorrow at the Tin Can Bay Community Complex. Entry is $5 with lucky door prizes drawn throughout the evening.

Doors open at 4.30pm with entertainment starting at 5pm. Food and drinks will be available on the night. It is a drug and alcohol-free family event, however all children under 12 must be supervised. All funds raised on the night will support providing free activities for local youth.
