After three years of procrastination since the eviction of the Fly by Night musicians club from the Fremantle Drillhall, Sunset Events has announced that they secured a liquor license for the 800 patron  Freo Social Hall venue.

I noticed last Friday when I had a meeting at Fremantle Prison, that there were a lot of tradesmen around the hall, so hopefully it will open sometime next year.

MUSICIANS FOR MALAWI AT FLY BY NIGHT

Posted in charity, children, education, fly by night club, fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on July 29, 2017

 

In 2015, Nola Formentin sold everything she owned in Fremantle and moved to Malawi in SE Africa. After an initial six months volunteering with an NGO, she was offered a job teaching music, swimming, art and environmental issues at a primary school near the city of Blantyre.

Nola now ants to raise money for Malawi at the Musicians for Malawi concert to be held at Victoria Hall on Saturday 5 August. Doors open 7pm and the night is run by The Fly By Night Musicians Club.

Headlining the evening will be Opera Australia’s Baritone Jose Carbo accompanied by David Wickham, supported by local opera singers Alexandra Bak, Jenna Robertson, Kelly Robertson, Helen Brown and Alessia Pintabona. The night then turns contemporary, with upcoming singer/songwriter Synaed Roche and The David Hyams Trio. Then finally, local country blues band The Suntones will have everyone dancing the night out! All artists are donating their time and talents for the evening. There will even be food available at the club. All proceeds go to Nola’s causes.

There are many NGOs around Blantyre in the south of Malawi. Nola has visited some that have touched her heart and she hopes to find donations to help them on their way. These include Morning Star JS Ministries, a locally run organisation that provides a safe and caring place for young men to gather and learn life skills.

They run a soccer team and need funding for uniforms and equipment, as well as rent for the clubhouse. The Jacaranda Foundation is an incredible school run solely for children affected by HIV/AIDS and has fostered some amazing talent both musically and artistically, sending students to summer schools in USA and Europe. The Fatima Centre is a small orphanage run by a retired English couple, fostering 25 orphans from their local village.

All these organisations are run entirely on donations and Nola would like to invite you to help her raise money to support these wonderful schools, which in turn will help educate and nurture these special children.

GOT ANY RUGS OR CARPETS FOR THE FLY BY NIGHT?

Posted in fly by night club, fremantle by freoview on September 14, 2015

The Fremantle Fly by Night Club in its new premises at Victoria Hall is looking for rugs and carpets. It’s not like they want to fly around like witches but it is to keep the sound down so they won’t get nose complaints from residents.

Below is their Facebook post:

Do you have a spare rug of carpet to help the Fly control the sound made on stage?

We have made Victoria Hall sound great, but we need to keep the sound within the Hall. The Fly by Night is required to do some sound proofing to Victoria Hall, which the Fly has quotes for and it is achievable but until the lease and liquor licence are all in place the Fly requires to implement a short term solution.

Our neighbour is getting upset with the so called noise so we need to action asap before the Fly host South Fremantle High School’s band showcase.

If you have any rugs or carpets the fly would appreciate the donation by this Wednesday.
