Local bands are tuning up for an afternoon of entertainment in Wagga to raise awareness of mental health.

“Original Bands Only”, will see a number of local bands perform at a concert at the Home Tavern on Sunday September 15 from 2pm to 6pm.

The event will be headlined by Wagga band Utopia Broke.

Supporting bands include 13 Wins, Keeping Autumn and Dave Biggin.
