Soul Fly Band....

a band of Gig Buddies

Who are we?... We are an advisory group of participants set up to oversee and advise the Gig Buddies Sydney project. We catch up monthly and help shape Gig Buddies Sydney going forward.

Gig Buddies Sydney prides itself on being a truly user led organisation. If you think we can make Gig Buddies better... we want to hear from you.

 

You can contact Soul Fly Band (Audrey, Lachie, Stavros, Jack, Myra and Fraser) and let us know what YOU want from the service. Just click the link below:

Soul Fly Band mission statement:

 

"We meet new people, we get out more, but most importantly we have fun and become friends.

 

We are the Soul Fly Band. We help people with disabilities get out more and do different things.

 

We help shape the Gig Buddies Sydney project by coming together once a month."
