John Farnham wasn’t available for the Music Victoria membership drive but Jake Mason of Cookin’ On 3 Burners was. Unfortunately, so was Music Victoria CEO Patrick Donovan who makes his vocal debut in the video.
Paddy has a great message. “When problems affect or venues and musicians, we go and talk to the politicians”. The statement reads a lot stronger than it is sung.
The Music Victoria Membership Drive video is a fun piece put together by singer songwriter Laura Imbruglia, who also stars in the vid. Music for the video is performed by Terry Mann, Stella Angelico & Jake Mason (Cookin’ on Three Burners), Steven Veale (The Hello Morning), Pablo Alvarado (Mesa Cosa), Sophie Koh and Broads as well as Nick Cooper, Al Parkinson, Patrick Donovan and Sarah Deborre.
The production crew is made up totally of Victorian musicians:
Director: Laura Imbruglia DOP: Sam Orchard (band – Cascades) Boom: Lara Soulio (band – Fourteen Nights At Sea) Editor: Kelly Dingeldei (bands – Loobs)
The Music Victoria Membership Drive is on from 19-29 March 2018. Membership gets you discounts and professional development opportunities but it also ensures that Music Victoria can continue to advocate on behalf of our state’s world-renowned music scene.
