Music In The House was created in 2006 as an opportunity for Support Act to recognise someone in Australian music for their musicianship, and as importantly, their broader contribution to the community.
It is now one of Support Act’s flagship fundraising events.
Over the past 14 years we have celebrated many wonderful Australian artists, listened to some killer acoustic performances of their music by artists they admire, and heard heartfelt and moving testimony from their peers regarding their influence and impact on our lives.
In doing so, we have been joined by the who’s who of the Australian music and entertainment industry, and have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for our programs which help artists, roadies and music workers who are doing it tough.
Our honour roll of recipients is as follows:
