The Band Nights at BMEC are to celebrate live music, local & regional musicians and the Bathurst arts loving community. Musicians perform in a relaxed environment, drinks and simple food can be purchased from the Bar and a dance floor is inviting everyone to let go of their busy everyday lifes and simply enjoy the amazing original music our region has to offer. Doors open from 7pm, music will start at 8pm. The Safety of Life at Sea is an original band with a distinctly vintage vibe inspired by blues and soul as well as the classic songwriters of the 60's and 70's. The rhythm section takes a leaf out of the books of Stax and Motown, and the piano went for a weekend in New Orleans and never really came back. Their second album Foxy’s Farm was released in 2017.
