Some of Sydney’s best new talent is home grown, right here in Bondi.


Home Grown is a series of free Sunday afternoon concerts in May, co-presented by Waverley Council‘s Cultural Programs team and award winning community radio collective Bondi Beach Radio, showcasing the musical talent in our community


Home Grown features three artists each week at one of Sydney’s most iconic art and cultural hubs Bondi Pavilion over three consecutive Sundays 4pm-6pm, providing an invaluable environment for emerging youth bands to mix with established industry veterans


Sunday 13 May features talented local singer / dancer / performance artist Marina Da Silva, recent Bondi Wave music program and BLYMP festival four piece rockers Syrup, and talented indie soul / jazz artist Esme whose last two singles have been winning the fans over across Australia


Sunday 20th May brings youth band Dirty Sherbet combining classic, energetic rock with blues, indie and funk, alongside YABC (Young Australian Broadway Choir), VPAC (Village Performing Arts College), and the Australian Girls’ Choir graduate Shirina Holmatova with her unique vocal style, and the high energy Bondi based Peruvian-born Richard Valdez who sings with a number of the leading salsa and Afro-Cuban bands around Sydney


Sunday 27th May showcases Hot Heads, a local Bondi band on the up who successfully competed for a coveted support spot on this year’s Shore Shocked Festival, rising soul / electro-pop star Sarai whose latest single Get To You has been getting well deserved airplay on JJJ, FBI, and BBR, as well as one of the most respected and hardest working artists on the Australian independent music scene, long time Bondi resident Declan Kelly


Waverley Mayor John Wakefield said Home Grown was a great opportunity to provide valuable support and experience for the area’s up and coming musicians. “Waverley’s got talent,” Mayor Wakefield said. This is a great program including an excellent line up of young, local musos. “The community told us they wanted a way to showcase the area’s emerging artists. We listened and Home Grown is the result. “I know everyone will be there to cheer these young people on as they make their way to the very top of the music scene,” Mayor Wakefield said.
