For the 9th consecutive year, some of Melbourne's best live musical and comedy performers will be turning out to do their bit for the Sacred Heart Mission's – Heart of St Kilda Concert. Being held on Tuesday 6th September, this huge variety concert is a feel good family celebration raising funds for a very worthwhile cause.
Brain Nankervis (aka Raymond J. Bartholomeuz, eccentric beat poet), is returning as MC and will be at the helm of a totally unique night of very high-profile entertainment. Other performers will include rock musician Toss Wilson, Killing Heidi's Ella Hooper, musical storyteller Russell Morris, Something For Kate's Paul Dempsey, Koori rock singer/songwriter Kutcha Edwards, hilarious comedian Judith Lucy, songwriter Shane Howard, award-winning British comedian Jeff Green, the unstoppable Umbilical Brothers and singing troupe The Rebelles.
Other celebrities in attendance will be Red Symons, Jimeoin, Deborah Conway with Clare Bowditch and Maddy and Memphis Kelly, Russell Morris, Olympia, The Meltdown, Rebecca Barnard and Billy Biller with the Caravan Choir and Melbourne Tap.
Last year, the Heart of St Kilda Concert raised a huge $79,000, feeding nearly 20,000 people through the Mission's Meals Program. The Mission provides over 160,000 meals every year and they need all the support they can get to fund their good work at the dining hall in Grey Street, St Kilda.
Original curators and producers Larry Ponting, Wal Bishop OAM, Palais Theatre CEO Neil Croker and St Kilda local Brian Nankervis rounded up some of Australia's best to manifest their vision of an event not only intended to entertain, but support those much less fortunate living in our community.
