Good Nights in search of funding to keep it 'up and running'

Good Nights is gearing up for a busy couple of months packed with shows this winter, before taking a break towards the end of the year.

Following a hugely successful two years of independent music shows in Bunbury, Perth and the South West, owner and operator Kelsie Miller is planning on taking some time to reassess the shows with the hope of making them more viable for the future.

“I have had incredible support from the Bunbury community over the past two years, as well as Mandurah, Bridgetown, the Ferguson Valley and Perth where we have started to build an audience for Good Nights,” she said.

“Good Nights will absolutely continue into the future, I’m just looking at the best possible ways of keeping it up and running.

“This means applying for funding, potentially securing sponsors who are keen to get on board and support the events and re-evaluate the business model.”

Good Nights will host some incredible shows this July and August in Bunbury, with a focus on cosy intimate venues such as 3Ciana, The Red Mill Store, the new Wild Vinegar Co headquarters and Bunbury’s hugely popular Market Eating House.

On the lineup is an array of talented local, Perth and interstate acts, including WAM award-winning blues musician Dan Howls who will perform on Saturday, July 22 at The Red Mill Store and Sunday, July 23 at the Gelorup House Concert; and east-coast duo The Ahern Brothers, who are touring with Good Nights as part of their massive national album release tour, and will perform at Wild Vinegar Co on Friday, August 4.

Carus Thompson will put on a special winter show for fans at 3Ciana on Saturday, July 8 while multi-award winning musician Riley Pearce will round out the upcoming shows on Sunday, August 20 with a live performance at Market Eating House.
