Last Thursday night, in front of a near sell out crowd of family, friends and fans, the Gold Coast 2017 Young Warriors took to the stage at the Helensvale Cultural Centre for the big gig, the final performance of this year’s program.
After weeks of solid rehearsals and workshops seven bands performed in what has been hailed as the best gig in the program’s history!
Lachlan McCay opened the show with a solo acoustic performance followed by awesome sets by Good Dreams Ink, Sayonara No Worries, Cold Crackin and Lawless Chairman. Â Stringsomnia, a violin duo premiered an arrangement of Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters and guest band Chasing Velvet blew the roof off performing tracks from their new EP Ever After.
The level of musicianship was outstanding this year with each band truly delivering great sets.
The Helensvale auditorium was first class and the technical team brilliant in bringing the final performances to life.
A massive congratulations to all involved, we can’t wait to see what next year brings.
