PERTH: 21 – 27 September 2010
Following the Nenad Bach Band’s successful two shows at the Lucy’s in Pleasantville, Nenad Bach went to Australia! First stop was in Perth [Western Australia] where he was a guest performer at the 2010 Smoke Free Perth Royal Show. This is Perth's biggest community event attracting 400,000 visitors from the city and the country every year. With a rich history spanning 170 years, the Show is an iconic social and cultural event which showcases WA agriculture, small business and entertainment.
Nenad was among the artists who were guests of the WA Croatian Community at this event to showcase talents of Croatian background and to promote this event throughout the world. Nenad was looked after the Croatian Consulate official. During his stay in Perth, he also performed at The Esplanade Hotel in Freemantle, which held the Croatian Food Exhibition.
Aside from his performances, Nenad also had interviews by two local radio stations: http://www.6eba.com.au/1/croatianradio.php 6EBA 95.3FM by Tugomir Matokovic and Darinka Ravlich.
107.9FM http://www.radiofremantle.com/ by Fr Nikola Čabraja.
Nenad also had a telephone interview by Sergio Marusic of Radio 3ZZZ 92.3FM. http://www.3zzz.com.au
On a personal level, one of the enjoyable parts of Nenad's visit to Perth was meeting for the first time his niece, Mara Halcomb, and two of Violi Calvert's friends.
