AS musicians from Australia jet in in preparation for the 2014 All Back Home show on Saturday, local co-ordinator Nesbitt Hazelman said music lovers were in for a show like no other.

"This year we're not only raising funds for the St Giles Hospital Patients Fund," he said.

"We're also going big on encouraging the youth by hosting a series of workshops midday Saturday.

"Internationally renowned bassist Victor Rounds and one of Australia's upcoming drummers, Lisa Purmodh, will be holding classes for youngsters interested in learning about making it in the music industry.

"They will also share their experiences about taking care of business in the music industry."

After the workshops, the All Back Home show proper will kick off with a performance by the Fiji National University brass band.
