We’re five! 🎉 🎂

Happy birthday to us.

Thanks to everyone who helped blow out the candles on our fifth birthday cake last Thursday.

More than 60 buddies joined us at the Shakespeare Hotel, partying to the sounds of Lyndsay Lemalu, who performed especially for us upstairs and Tilda, who played downstairs.

And just like five years ago when we launched, we were joined by Gig Buddies founder, Paul (below left, taken at our launch in 2015 alongside Andrew and Maddie, both of whom also travelled from Brighton; below centre, taken at our rebranding night in 2017; and below right, snapped at The Shakey on Thursday alongside ACLL chair of the board, George).

Thanks to Paul for gracing us with his presence, and thanks to The Shakespeare for being such wonderful hosts.

Radio ga ga

A few weeks ago Carol spoke with Perth-based radio station Curtin FM, telling those in Western Australia about who we are and what we do.

You can listen to the conversation from this link.


New buddies
