All Back Home raises $16k for charity

THE 2014 All Back Home show raked in more than $16,000 at the concert on Saturday night at the Royal Suva Yacht Club.

And show co-ordinator Nesbitt Hazelman said after expenses, a net profit of close to $8000 was expected.

"Because we are making this an annual event, some of the proceeds will be retained as seed capital for next year's show," he said.

"We need to make sure the show is self-sustainable. We are looking at donating in excess of $5000 to the St Giles Patients Fund."

Hazelman said a committee of musicians from Australia and Fiji would be formed to develop a three-day program for the show next year.

"We will hold the show from June 25 to June 27 next year and we have chosen these dates to coincide with the new public holiday — Fiji Sports Day."

Internationally renowned bassist Victor Rounds committed to raffle a custom-built bass guitar which will be signed by him at next year's show.

"Next year, there are discussions being held to host a gala dinner on the first day of the event where people can enjoy dinner and listen to some world class jazz and contemporary music courtesy of our local musicians."
