We had an intimate gathering for our final Vibes on the Green for 2013. The music was great, we had everything from spanish style guitar, originals pieces, classic covers and an instrumental jam. It was so nice to just lay out your picnic blanket and chairs and let the sweet tunes entertain and relax you. Throughout the day, Jack and Harry, some of the Central Coasts funkiest artists, transformed a car into a work of art. They used spray paint to turn a bleak old hatch into a colourful and fun car to drive. This event is a place for the local arts community to come together and support each other and share their talents with friends, family and other locals. It has been such a successful event and we at ROAR love supporting Jai from Munjang Adventures in any way we can. We look forward to more art and music collaborations in 2014!

Vibes on the Green
We folks at ROAR spent some time brainstorming together with our cousin Amy and the Co-founders of Munjang Adventures (Jai & Josh) whilst surfing and sipping lattes on The Black Cats East Coast 2013 music tour. One of our key focus points was planning and supporting community projects or events that promote and inspires local creative talent in the areas of art, music and surf/skate culture. We are also passionate about encouraging our youth in making positive life choices and being responsible for their environment and surroundings.
We started out with organising back yard afternoon jams, after a day at the beach, in our local area on the Central Coast, NSW, Australia. These were called 'Munjang Rebel' Back Yard Jams, which involved some talented artists creating art projects whilst musicians provided some tunes and of course we had a tasty BBQ!
Regrouping after a successful jam we had an enthusiastic debrief and decided that there was opportunity to grow our event in the wider community. Jai fortunately ran into a local Council worker (Janette) at a local Cafe from Greater Toukley Vision (this organisation supports growth and popularity of local businesses in Toukley) and she responded with support of our ideas and passion.
Through this opportunity 'Vibes on the Green' was created and we were back at the ipads and laptops going through our creative social networks organising musicians and artists to share their talents with our community. Our goal is to make this event a well known music and arts day for the coast, where we all come together with like minded creative people and support and encourage each other.
