" Music Victoria is doing much needed work to improve working conditions and increase opportunities for Victorian musicians across the state. I urge you to support this important organisation in order to maintain and further Melbourne’s reputation as one of the great musical cities of the world."
"Music Victoria was formed to actively encourage and support this tradition of live music. Since their formation only three years ago the organisation has already made major inroads as the voice of Melbourne’s music scene. I am proud to be able to lend my support to the good work they do."
"As a musician and citizen, I am so grateful to Music Victoria for looking out for our music community. Breakthroughs in things like the live music laws and baggage allowances are amazing achievements and essentially helps to maintain a wonderfully supportive and nurturing environment for the arts in Australia."
"My fellow musicians, let us utilise our collective differences, across all genres and all ages and band together to fight the good fight! Music Victoria provides a voice that can speak for us all and be heard across the entire state. Get on board!"
"As new band organisations such as Music Victoria working to ensure we have a future, is vital for us to continue growing as artists. We urge all other young bands to show their support by becoming members."
"We love music, we believe in music, and we're here to advocate for the place of music in Victoria. Your membership allows Music Victoria to get out there and fight the good fight. Sound good? Then c'mon - Jump on the bandwagon! For around the cost of a slab, please generously support Music Victoria, so we can support you."
"The more people that get on board the Music Victoria membership campaign, the stronger it will become, and the sooner it will be able to benefit everyone."
"It's so important for musicians, venues and live music lovers to have one strong voice that it's hard to believe that Music Victoria hasn't been around forever. Now that it's here, we need to support it. 33 bucks is not a lot but it ensures Music Vic can carry on the great work they've been doing over the last 2 years."
"Music Victoria seem to be taking the kind of progressive steps that actually help the inner workings of the everyday band. Basically, anyone that negotiates baggage allowances with airlines to help with all our gear is alright by us."
"Attempting to play music as a profession can be a surprisingly isolating experience. You can spend a whole heap of time on the computer just trying to get things happening, doing the books, booking stuff. You ring people, you work in the studio, in the back room - and you often wonder if you are heading in the right direction. An organisation like Music Victoria can provide a really welcome sounding board and a sense of solidarity and community. It provides a sense that your quest is not a lone one and that someone else is on your side."
"It's impossible, if you're a muso in Victoria, not to have benefitted in some way from Music Victoria! You play a gig, they've helped you. You go on a plane to play in some other god forsaken state, they've helped you."
"Being a part of the music industry is an amazing adventure, and like all great adventures there are many joys and perils along the way. You need friends to help you, to guide you away from the pitfalls, to keep you company as you walk through the valleys and to give you a hand as you climb the peaks. Music Victoria is such a friend. Become a member today and share the wild and wonderful journey with them, you'll be glad you did."
