Aussie rock icon to serenade fans

Northern Rivers resident Bernard Fanning will offer an online show via Serenade's Patron Artist.

Serenade's Patron Artist is a monthly initiative with one headline artist selected to join the platform, who then chooses three support acts to pay it forward to.

Serenade invites artists to play their songs for the fans who pay for it.

Those who book a serenade receive a video with the song and special message (if requested by the fan) within ten days.

For one month, whenever a fan books a Serenade from the Patron Artist, Serenade will purchase another one from one of their nominated supports, with the fan receiving two Serenades for the price of one.
