Motor Ace Playing Bushfire Benefit Australia Day


 

 

 

 

 

 

Epic Line Up To Pay Tribute To David Bowie’s Golden Years

Band

After making their highly anticipated return to the stage in 2018, beloved Aussie band Motor Ace are hitting the road for a run of summer shows, kicking off next week at 48 Watts in Newcastle on January 25, before heading to play Festivale in Launceston on January 31, Coopers Ale House in Adelaide on February 21, and finishing up playing in Dunsborough (WA) on February 22.  They will also be jumping on stage and doing what they do best to help Aussies in need, playing a bushfire benefit show on-ground in Sale, East Gippsland on Australia Day.
 
We all loved getting the band back together and had a really great time on the road last year, so when we were asked to do a few more shows, we were excited to take them on.  It was such fun to get out and play and we’re soo humbled that our fans haven’t forgotten us!” says drummer Damian Costin.
 
Passionate about helping those caught up in the bushfires that ravaged East Gippsland on new year’s eve, Motor Ace are keen to do all they can, Costin enthuses, “Words won’t fix anything right now.  Action is required, and getting down into the Gippsland area to do a benefit show is important to us.  So all ticket sales will be passed on in cash form, straight to those in the area that need it most.  There’ll be auctions, the hat is getting passed around and we are having a bbq to bring some slight relief to the area.  We’re hoping to get Melburnians along to spend some money in the community as well, donations are great, but actually getting in your car and heading down to eat, stay and be there is massively important right now too.”
 
With a rich musical history spanning over twenty years, Motor Ace’s debut album Five Star Laundry went gold within the first month of going on sale in Australia. After that massive feat, the band spent many months on the road touring and making music, with massive supports slots alongside Foo FightersOasis and Blink-182.  You couldn’t turn on the radio without coming across Motor Ace; and as sold out shows became the norm, their tracks became a mainstay on the ARIA charts.  Their timely sophomore album Shoot This was released in 2002 to abundant critical acclaim.  It spawned lead single Carry On that held the coveted #1 most played song on Australian airwaves for 8 weeks in a row, and Shoot This, debuting at #1 on the charts and achieving gold sales on release.  
 
Can we expect to hear a new Motor Ace tune any time soon? “Patch and Dave have been writing new music and we had a session in the studio late last year, the expectations are high, so we can’t drop anything until it’s really right.  The magic was there and that’s what is important to us, to find the magic,” beams CostinAnd quality takes time, and time is something we don’t have a lot of.  But I can confirm what we have been working on sounds fucking brilliant, better than anything that currently exists in this solar system.  The new tunes are like a universe of rainbows and magical musical notes sprinkled with pools of baby dolphins and fluffy pink sun lounges with a cocktail bar in your ear!
 
Motor Ace is Patrick Robertson (vocals, guitar), Dave Ong (guitar), Damo Costin (drums) and Matt Balfe (bass).

Bushfire Bootcamp Appeal This Weekend Australia Wide 

BUSHFIRE BOOTCAMP APPEAL THIS WEEKEND Australia Wide

HOSTED BY SOPHIE GUIDOLIN, AND A LIST OF FITNESS PERSONALITIES!


 

 

 

 

 

 

Epic Line Up To Pay Tribute To David Bowie’s Golden Years

Australian fitness personality, Sophie Guidolin has raised over $1million dollars for the NSW Rural Fire Service & Brigades Fund in NSW and the CFS Foundation Volunteer Fund in just over a week.

Since then, the fitness professional has her eyes set on rolling out the Bushfire Bootcamp Appeal, with the aim of raising $250,000 to go directly to Kangaroo Island which will be held on Saturday 18 January from 7am.

Now being termed “Australia’s biggest bootcamp for the bushes”, Sophie has enlisted the help of a number of well- known faces in the fitness community to help her run the bootcamps across the country.

Names such as Rachel Dillon, Revie Jane, Triniti-Jean, Sally Harding, Julia Woodford, Zac Smith, Chloe Szep, Sophie Allen, Kwame Duah, Joe Pitt, Mitchell Orval, Amanda Matthews, Lauren Simpson, Danni Belle, Ali Oetjen and more have signed up to donate their time to run the events.

Tickets are $25, with 100% going directly to Kangaroo Island. No profits, no overheads, no expenses. All aid must and will go to those directly impacted on Kangaroo Island.

Guidolin, who’s father has served in as a volunteer firefighter for over 40 years, was immediately and personally impacted by the Australian bushfires. Knowing all too well the exhaustive efforts and dangerous conditions that so many men and women face on the front line, Sophie could not just sit back and do nothing.

Sophie said, “Kangaroo Island is undoubtedly one of Australia’s crown jewels, with over half of the island already burnt this will effect this beautiful island for many years to come.”

“Kangaroo Island has lost its major sources of income: Tourism and Farming/Food Production. Tragically, we have lost lives (which can never be replaced) however, many have lost their homes, properties and livelihoods.”

Sweat for good, and join us as we raise funds for Kangaroo Island. For more information or to purchase tickets jump on to Eventbrite, Instagram @bushfirebootcamp or https://www.sophieguidolin.com.au
