Taking a Trip Down Memory Lane

by on May.22, 2014, under info

Well HELLO there! Vicky here…one of the newest members to join the Tune-Up gang. Welcome to my first blog post! I have been excited to write this post and I finally have my chance on a cruisy, chilled Monday night at the bar.

It’s been such an awesome experience working here at the bar, I’ve been meeting some really rad people! Meeting the Tune-Up girls and all the regulars has been so much fun, I know I have made some awesome friends. And of course all the other characters that come through the doors.  It has been a crack up!  One of the funnest parts has been going back to down memory lane with all the songs that are selected and the bar, and remembering some awesome forgotten tunes. It has also been amazing to learn how many song lyrics I have been singing wrong all of these years!! Haha!!

The gang here have got to talking about the live music we have seen over the years and the best concert you have ever attended. It has been a test on the memory that’s for sure! It’s funny sometimes how your music taste can change over the years, from your teenage years to your adult years, but there is always a favourite band or genre you seem to come back to. For me though, I have such a diverse range of music that I love. I still love all the music I listened to when I was young, all the music my parents loved and all the new music that comes out today. For me, there is no real genre, I either hear a song and I love it or I hate it!

So on that note, I will get back to my research of the Tune-Up song book to start my list of favourites. No doubt it is going to keep changing but I got to narrow my list of songs I love to sing down otherwise I will hog the mike too much!!


p.s – my favourite concerts were…Muse, Eminem and Gotye!
(so far…)

When Kats is away, his mice will play

by on May.10, 2014, under info

Ahoy there! Bec and Georgie here….As some of you regulars may have noticed, our beloved boss Kats has been rather MIA this week due to short vacation he’s having at the Gold Coast Hospital …don’t worry, he’s alive and well, they’re just fixing a few loose screws in his brain 🙂

What this has meant for the Tune-Up girls is a week-long party without the Kats-man! And boy have we been up to mischief! Haha. Not really…..but we have enjoyed running the joint on our own.  All we’ve really been able to take advantage of is being able to play Taylor Swift night after night without Kats rolling his eyes at us…….oh and our regular visits to Oporto at 1am every night for hot chippies!

Amidst Kats’ absence, we have learnt a few valuable lessons. Such as:

-No, women cannot fix things…including microphones or toilets…in fact we’re completely useless when it comes to these “mechanical/tech” things.

-Kats actually has a LOT of admirers….in other words it seems as though EVERY man and his dog have noticed that Kats hasn’t been here. It seems his presence is more noted than we thought!

-Carrying kilograms’s of groceries and stock is INCREDIBLY phsycially demanding…..we better have lost at LEAST 10 kilos each after the physical exhaustion we’ve endured the past week and a half.

-Kats really DOES work very hard. After having to take on all of his “owner” rolls, we’ve realized just how much he does….he shops, he carries stock, he fixes things, we answers calls and emails…..he really is the whole package and we don’t think we’ll ever be able to match his Power Ranger super human abilities!

-And last but not least, the biggest lesson we have learnt is that Tune-Up CAN still run without the Kats man….who would’ve known! We were certain it was going to fall to pieces after the first day….

Anyhow, we’re happy to report that Kats is back in our arms and perfectly healthy and now the hole that lingered without Kats here has been filled again. So make sure you come up and say hello to your favourite bar owner!! He’s missed you all!
