The Australian International Music Show, taking place next month in Melbourne, Australia, plans to unite iconic names of the rock’n’roll and blues industry. The festival will last for two days, from October 2nd to 3rd, and announced to feature live performances from big names in the music business.
Festival organizers said that famous musicians will also be holding workshops and masterclasses to members of the public that are interested in playing an instrument. Blues legend and four times Grammy nominee Robben Ford will hold a workshop for members of the audience, but the ticket number for this workshop is limited to 300.
A big name in rock’n’roll, and former star of the controversial band Kiss, Brucke Kulick, will be present at the Australian International Music Show as well, and will give advice to the audience on rock guitar, while Jonathan Moffett, who accompanied on drums in concerts by other big names from the music business such as Madonna and Elton John, has scheduled a masterclass. Country favorite Redd Volkaert together with the ex frontman of Tea Party, Jeff Martin, will also be offering tips on instrument related topics.
The Australian International Music Show will be held at the Melbourne Exhibition Center and tickets cost A$20. Parents can also purchase tickets for children at A$10, but passes at Robben Ford’s workshop cost an additional A$59.
