Support Act Crew Survey

Support Act Crew Survey

 

Crew are a key focus for Support Act, a charity that supports artists, roadies and others working in the music industry, and their families.

Over the past few years, more and more crew have been reaching out to Support Act for help, but they are keen to ensure that they are reaching everyone in need.

Their sense is that not everyone is accessing the services that are available, perhaps due to the resilient and unassuming nature of many crew. But as we know, working backstage can be a low income, high stress, insecure vocation and many of us battle with addictions and depression.

This has in recent years led to crew coming together for events like Roady4Roadies which raised over $62,000.00 for the Support Act 'Roadies' fund to assist crew in crisis.

Roady4Roadies 2019 Event Wrap Up

Roady4Roadies-2020_960x640

The inaugural Roady4Roadies proved a stunning success in so many ways! The national event, an audacious campaign held on March 10th in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth and March 24th in Adelaide, has raised over $65,470.00, with nett profit of $56,790.00 already going to the Support Act ‘Roadies fund’.

Shining a big bright spotlight on the diverse range of highly technical and creative skills required of live music production crew, Roady4Roadies also raised public awareness to the dire outcomes many of them now face. The work is high octane, high pressure and sometimes highly dangerous! The intense pressure of the job itself can often lead to chronic physical problems, financial difficulties and mental health issues.

One of the most pleasing aspects was to witness so many of our top professionals, from all areas of the music business, pulling together as a team. Promoters, publicists, managers, agents, venues and artists, all freely giving their time... and money! All working along-side each other with the best crew in the country, the best in the world.

ROADY4ROADIES MELBOURNE

The Melbourne event saw in excess of 300 walk from The Palais Theatre in St Kilda to Point Ormond and back to watch the Mark Seymour, Dave Graney & the mistLY, J.R. Reyne, Sisters Doll and Jarosite perform. Minister for the Creative Industries and Minister for Mental Health Martin Foley chose the Roady4Roadies event to announce the Victorian Government’s $100,000.00 grant for Support Act, the first time any government has done so, before mesmerising the audience with his lead rolling skills!

ROADY4ROADIES SYDNEY

The day in Sydney was held at The Bridge Hotel in Rozelle. Over 200 gathered to hear a few words from Shadow Minister for the Arts Tony Burke MP, Lindy Morrison from Support Act, author and Roady4Roadies Ambassador Stuart Coupe and Shadow Minister for Music and the Night Time Economy John Graham MLC before being entertained by performances by Brendon Gallagher and FOK ROK, then Mark Callaghan and Buzz Bidstrup from GANGgajang, who were joined by Ollie Bailey - the late Chris Bailey’s son (The Angels, GANGgajang) on a masterful rendition of The Angel’s “She Keeps No Secrets”.
