The Second Annual Howie's Kick Off
Shiny Head Productions presents
Local music legend Howard “Howie” Kehl was not just an ARIA-award winning songwriter and drummer, he was a mentor for up-and-comers in the local rock music scene. Howie’s sudden death in 2015 created a hole not only in the hearts of his family, friends and fellow musicians, but also in the support network he had harnessed for new talent.
Now Howard’s 30-plus years of dedication to music are being honoured through an Annual Development Award as part of the SCALA Festival Of Original Music Song Competition. The award is in the genre of Rock Music.
To help fund the Award, The Second Annual Howie’s Kick Off, a family friendly afternoon of live Rock ‘n’ Roll with Imogen Brave, Poundcake, FastMotor, Amberlist and the inaugural award recipient, Peter Jenkins. Special guest is Vince Contarino. All of the artists are volunteering their time and talents.
Howie’s Kick Off is proudly presented by ‘Shiny Heads Productions’, a group comprising six of Howie’s close friends and musicians, formed to celebrate Howard’s legacy.
The Shiny Heads are:
• Vince Contarino (Zep Boys)

• Catherine Blanch (Third Drawer/Catherine Blanch [Boy] Band)
