Australia’s music community is uniting for a special outdoor event on June 4 at the Logan Village Hotel to aid the victims of this year’s devastating flood, which ravaged Brisbane’s southern outskirts.
With 199 homes and around 20 businesses inundated by the Logan River off the back of ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie in March, Queensland came together with emergency services and a ‘mud army’ of volunteers working to get lives back on track as the flood waters hit their highest levels since 1974.
Now it’s the music community’s turn to help with an exclusive show in aid of flood victims prompting the formation of ‘The Flood Aid Rock Legends” for one night only, featuring Buzz Bidstrup (The Angels, Gangajang), Mark Evans (AC/DC), Kevin Borich (The Party Boys) & Tyrone Noonan (George) coming together for a once-in-a-lifetime rock experience. The legends will be joined for the special Seven-hour concert event by Aussie country royalty John Williamson and James Blundell plus party band Route 33 and Logan’s own Ruby Jo (The Voice).
The event will be held at the Logan Village Hotel on Sunday June 4 and is being pulled together by a range of sponsors including Telstra, Jack Daniels and Mack Trucks as well as the venue’s owner McGuire Hotel Group who are all contributing cash and in-kind support to make the event happen.
The event is expected to raise up to $75,000 for flood victims, with the Laurie Koranski and Linus Power MLA, chairing the distribution of funds through various charities to get funds directly to the families who need the help and the Emergency Service organisations.
