Margaret River Primary School

Battle of the Bands Fundraiser

As key sponsor of the Margaret River Primary School Music Program, Settlers Tavern turned it on at the 27 November 2013 gig for Margaret River's rock stars of the future. In a much talked about gig in town four Margaret River Primary School Bands rocked it out on stage with an audience of adoring fans. The biggest night on the Margaret River Primary School event calendar saw families, friends, local musicians and mentors flock to The Tav for a two hour rock concert followed by dinner.

Margaret River Primary boasts an innovative and exciting music program delivered by Ms Helen Collis.

The primary school community took the opportunity to top up funds through the event selling raffle tickets and taking collections. Huge prizes such as an electric guitar were up for grabs.

Settlers Tavern owners Rob and Karen Gough, continue to generously sponsor the event twice a year supporting with venue hire, staging equipment and a professional sound production crew. Matching every dollar donated on the night accounts for precise funds that are used to purchase musical instruments, plugs and sound equipment. With big hearts and a strong connection to community this is one of their favourite events.

Local patrons in The Tav were impressed by the talent and confidence of all the young artists, many of them staying on to see each of the bands full sets.
