COMING UP: Local band Sox and Robbers will take to the stage at this month's Live n Loud event.

Young performers from the Mid Coast area will take to the Manning Entertainment Centre stage for the next installment of Live n Loud.

The event will be held on Friday, September 14 and is organised, promoted and run by members of the Manning Youth Action and Interact team (MYAIT).

Keegan Gibson, Hudson Rose, Xavier Hunt, 5 percent panic and Sox and Robbers will provide the entertainment while an open mic segment will open up the stage to budding artists. MidCoast Council’s Lyndie Hepple said the event provides a safe platform for performers to showcase their talents.

“Live n Loud is a safe and supportive environment for young performers to develop confidence and build a stage presence. It’s also a great place for young people to come together socially, enjoy live music and be part of something specifically relevant to youth in the Mid Coast region.

“It’s incredible to see the breadth of talent from teenagers in our region, and the way the event has evolved into a professionally organised night of entertainment,” Lyndie said.

A group that participated in a recent series of sound production workshops will put their newly required skills to the test on the night. The event runs from 6pm to 9pm. Entry is a gold coin donation. 

Live n Loud is a supervised, drug and alcohol free event. To stay up-to-date, visit the Manning Youth Facebook page.
