First Post and Marty Casey Lands in New Zealand

My first post - wow - about time as I have had this set up since about October.

It's a New Year and I have so many things I want to achieve this year, and one thing on the list is to get this blog going.

The start of the year has been great, last week Marty Casey from Rock Star:INXS fame, arrived in New Zealand for a solo acoustic tour - "Making it Happen". He will be performing in Christchurch (x2), Dunedin, Invercargill, Queenstown, Blenhein, Nelson, Wellington, Auckland.

The tour is in support of CanTeen the NZ organisation supporting young people living with cancer.

The "Making it Happen" tour came about early 2008, with Tania (a fan) suggesting he come to NZ, will things soon starting gaining momentum; Jo from Grow Your Business ( was on board as soon as Tania suggested the tour. Using her business network, Jo tapped into graphic designers, an accountant, web developer, and I put my hand up to handle media activity.

All nett proceeds from the tour will be going to CanTeen to help them with their work in the community, and one other exciting things taking place during the tour will be Marty's involvement at the CanTeen National Camp, where he will be leading a song writing workshop. Marty will be going through the steps he used in writing his hit "Trees". At the end of the workshop CanTeen will have a single of their own.

Get along and see Marty Casey - and support CanTeen -
