Charity Mirow from multi award winning ‘Fusion Boutique Presents’ has been presenting and promoting unique and quality live music in a range of venues in the Blue Mountains for over 12 years.
Obviously, the situation surrounding COVID, lockdowns and frequently changing venue restrictions has presented its challenges. The entertainment industry is one of the first to be impacted, and the last to be able to get back to a viable position through breakouts, public health order changes and border restrictions.
While a number of shows have needed to be postponed again through the current stay at home order period, including the launch of their new “listening space” concert series at the Palais Royale, Charity is determined to push on. She says that the uncertainty is frustrating but her passion is unwavering and the value of being able to present fabulous artists in personal and respectful ways, while uplifting the community and supporting other local businesses, is enormous.
Charity would like to encourage patrons to keep buying tickets as far in advance as possible, rather than leaving it until the last minute. It is this support that will help ease the load on everyone involved including artists, bookers, managers, agents, and local venues and staff.
Guests can still book shows with confidence knowing that if a show needs to be cancelled for any reason, then guests have the option to have tickets refunded, transferred to another show or attend the new dates if a show needs to be rescheduled. In the instance of guest illness tickets can be transferred on request too.
Service NSW vouchers have been extended until 31st August and Fusion Boutique are accepting ‘Discover’ vouchers for ticket sales of concerts of any date and even for gift vouchers. Guests can use one through their online booking system or contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss redemption of multiple vouchers. All show ticket pre-sales are also discounted too.
They are looking forward to bringing Australian folk, rock, and blues singer, songwriter Kim Churchill back to the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel on 5th of September. Kim was the last ticketed show that they had the pleasure of presenting prior to the initial lockdown in 2020, and it was of course a sold-out show.
Their launch of the new “Palais Performances” series in the grand ballroom of the Palais Royale in Katoomba will now be on 14th August with ARIA award winning Dave Graney and Clare Moore. Following this will be Montgomery Church’s ‘Where the Quiet Can Hide’ Album Launch tour on 11th September. This beautiful evening of live acoustic music will be complimented by the addition of very special guests, Charlie & Jensen.
Concerts planned for October so far include T. Wilds ’10 Songs’ Album Launch in trio format with Matt Toohey (Kid Cornered) on guitar and Anna West on cello, upstairs at the Bootlegger Bar, and also a very hopeful plan for a dancing show with The Crooked Fiddle Band on 16th Oct at the Baroque Room. This event will proceed according to the public health order requirements current at the time.
