We are super excited to announce the much anticipated launch of the 2013 Regional ‘JAK HOMELAND TOUR’. JAK is a high energy Rock Band from Brisbane known for their uniquely entertaining unforgettable shows. They have taken it upon themselves to share their passion for music with regional Australia. Giving audiences and local musicians in areas of the country typically overlooked the chance to attend well-staged rock concerts. JAK hopes to highlight to tour promoters and bands alike, both nationally and internationally that inland Australia is as viable as the tour circuits in more saturated coastal centres and capital cities. Jak will be visiting Charters Towers in June.
