The Deep End arbias rock band have been busy with a live concert at the Darebin Music Feast, an arts festival to support emerging artists and disadvantaged people in the City of Darebin.The music event Deep End Rock Gig: Music from the Heart presented a diverse show of original music by The Deep End together with their take on many classics such as Nina Simone, ACDC and Elvis. The gig was well attended, and many people living in Special Residential Services came along to enjoy the show. In October for Mental Health Week, The Deep End, along with the Marimba Percussion Group, played an afternoon of live music. The mini music festival was co-ordinated by arbias and Hope Springs and hosted by Hope Springs at Heidelberg West Uniting Church. The event included an afternoon BBQ with a gold coin donation.

The band look forward to the One And All Festival in Warrnambool this November. With the support of arbias and The Warrnambool City Council the eight members of the band will travel and stay overnight in Warrnambool before playing at the main event, “A Day on the Civic”. The Festival provides opportunities for participation for people with or without a disability.
