You need management
We see entertained people
Fighting for your right to party
It's all about the music
Ask not what good music can do for you, but what you can do to hear good music
Managing the soundtrack of your life
Your local music fix
Band management. Not man bandagement.
The future of local music.
Awesomeness in real time
Musicphiles of the world, unite!

Mannequin Republic would like to wish all of our mates and fans a happy new year and wish you all the best in 2017.
2016 was a year of writing and recording for Mannequin Republic bands, with fewer live shows than usual, but some excellent new recordings made throughout the year.
Our own Bayharbour has released a couple of great singles plus the debut of their first full length album, Time Lapse released at the very end of the year, which has already stacked up a pile of rave reviews.
A Beach Of Silence’s long year in the studio and negotiating the release of their third full length album, Secrets, has resulted in one of the most talked about music videos of the year being dropped at the end of 2016 with anticipation building for the album’s full release on February 24, 2017.

AAA Backstage has built high a reputation for itself based on its detailed and original content, having interviewed and reviewed some of the hottest bands to come across the Australian music scene.
Recently those talents have been applied to the latest single by Bayharbour, “Life In The Clouds” which dropped last November. Writer Jack Dooner painstakingly dissects the single, going into aspects of the music construction and lyrical content alike.
Commenting on the use of contrasting vocals between Nat Patterson and Jay Sibthrope, the intricacies of the guitar riffs and the dynamics created by the drums, this critique highlights just how much thought and hard work went into this new project by Bayharbour.
The article also features the new video for “Life In The Clouds” and a short synopsis of the clip itself.
