B2M Hit Ravensthorpe!

Media Release


Fresh from recording their new album Home, B2M will treat audiences around regional Western Australia to their high energy music during their album launch tour in February and March 2015.  B2M were nominated Band of the Year at the prestigious 2012 Deadly Awards ad have also launched a ground-breaking cyber safety clip, Strong Choices, which addresses the problems of inappropriate use of digital media.
 
B2M are from the Tiwi Islands, Northern Territory and their name is taken from the two Tiwi Islands, Bathurst and Melville. The band sings in both English and Tiwi language, promoting positive attitudes through their upbeat tunes.  The six-piece R&B group will get Ravensthorpe audiences dancing at the Ravensthorpe Town Hall on Wednesday 4th March during their tour to 11 regional venues from Broome to Esperance.
 
"B2M...wow, the music, the joy, the talent- it was contagious.  It would have been a standing ovation that demanded an encore- but everyone was already on their feet dancing!  We couldn't get enough of them," said Phaedra Watts, Artistic Director of the Nannup Music Festival.
 
"what an opportunity for WA regional communities to see B2M play live.  Not only are these men respected role models in their community, but each member is a well -known identity in Australia's Northern territory.  The message they share through their music, encourages young people to make positive choices and changes in their lives." says Jessica Machin, Chief Executive Officer of Country Arts WA.
 
The tour is presented by Country Arts WA and sponsored by Healthway promoting the Mentally Healthy WA campaign message, Act-Belong-Commit, as part of the 2015 Shows on the Go program.
 
Healthway Executive Director, David Malone said: "The Act-Belong-Commit message encourages people of all ages to take action to protect and promote their own mental well being. Healthways' partnership with Country Arts WA for Shows on the Go touring programs is an ideal way for us to get this important message out to many communities throughout regional Western Australia."
 
"When people come together to enjoy these performances this helps to generate a sense of belonging which is a vital part of positive mental health.  By joining family, friends and neighbours for the B2M band performance, people in these communities will be showing that they know how to Act-Belong-Commit."
 
Internationally travelled B2M have hit the stage in East Timor and China.  In the band's short history they have already achieved what takes some bands years to achieve. For more information visit www.countryartswa.asn.au/touring/shows-on-the-go
