DALLAS FRASCA

“Music Victoria is the voice for bands and musicians! We have saved a tonne of cash for my band for not having to pay excess baggage fees, discounted advertising rates, insurance amongst a tonne of other stuff and are always approachable if there is something you are unsure about or need guidance with. They’ve been a strong voice for women in the industry, if you got a problem, yo, they’ll help solve it. MV are on the streets, in our venues and moshing at our festivals. Never has there been an organisation that have made so many positive changes in our industry. You want it? SUPPORT IT”

MICK THOMAS

“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.”
