A group of young musicians from Assumption College will soon play their debut gig, performing at Northern Republic in Euroa on Sunday.
‘Swim State’ was formed by Beau Farrell, Xavier Kelly, Josh Ryan, Liam Walker, and Harry Palmer, who met while studying VCE music and formed a friendship through a shared interest in music.
The group has also been under the guidance of guitar teacher and professional musician Matt Jennings, who has helped them to progress to be able to perform at live music venues.
“To see the boys progressing the way they have is a real credit to the commitment they have made to their music,” Mr Jennings said.
“They definitely have talked in spades and knit well together. I am really confident that they can kick some goals from here.”
Swim State competed in the Kilmore Busking Championships earlier this year, winning the people’s choice sward and finishing second overall in the judges’ votes.
The group will support Melbourne punk rock band Romero at the Euroa gig, and will play a selection of original songs.
There is a free return bus travelling from Kilmore, Seymour and Avenel.
The all-ages show will start at 5pm on Sunday at Euroa’s Northern Republic restaurant, with alcohol and smoking prohibited.
