It was almost THIRTY YEARS ago….
Birdland opened in Barrack St on 8/10/91 !!!
Wow – we’ve made it to 30 !! 4 moves, 2 ARIAs, a bakers dozen album releases and nearly 30 years on the clock.
A big thanks to all who’ve contributed in one way or another over the years: ex birdland workers, musicians, reviewers, promoters, record company folk, radio folk, – there are too many to mention by name. But we are especially grateful to you, the customer / client / friend for keeping us in a state of arrested development for the last twenty odd years.
Without your ongoing support we wouldn’t be here and we would have to get proper jobs. So a big thanks to you. Keep on keeping on.
