THE organiser of Kiama's Music in the Park has a list of performers eager to extend the series, he just needs further support from Kiama Council.
Charlie D'Amico hit on the idea for the family-friendly Sunday afternoon band event after staging a fund-raiser for the victims of the February tornadoes.
Sunday's event is the third and, at this stage, final in a run of free concerts staged at Hindmarsh Park.
The afternoon includes rides and face-painting.
Mr D'Amico said the performances had been a hit with the public and performers.
The event received financial support from Kiama Council and Kiama Tourism.
Mr D'Amico said he has more than a dozen choirs, bands, duos, singer/songwriters keen to take the stage in Hindmarsh Park should the monthly concerts continue.
"We have got so much talent here," he said.
"It's important young people have somewhere to play."
Mr D'Amico said he would approach Kiama Council to seek an extension.
"We need to have something in Kiama over the summer months . . . We need to be using that stage," he said.
Aaron Gullotto from four-piece band The Sabres thanked Mr D'Amico and the council for giving his band the opportunity to play what will be its third gig.
"There are not many venues that under-18 bands can play, so we are very grateful," he said.
Joining lead guitarist Aaron in The Sabres is singer Toby Allen, bass player Ben Cunningham and drummer Ryan King. All are teenagers at Kiama High School.
Aaron said he, Ben and Ryan had been jamming in Ryan's basement for three or four years before realising fellow student Toby could sing and putting him up front.
If they could be another band, Aaron said they would be Led Zeppelin or AC/DC.
"They are the two bands we wanted to be," he said. "There is something special about the old music. The new music is all about parties and dancing and that's OK too, but there is something special about real instruments."
Sunday's schedule is: Noon - Voices By The Sea; 12.30pm - Sing Australia Choir; 1pm - Blowhole Buskers; 1.30pm - The Sabres; 2.15pm - Daniel D'Amico and Alex Specogna; and 3.15pm - Big Blues Party.
