What can you do with 3 minutes and a microphone? Tell your story, shout your message, share your heart. Doors open/sign-up from 7pm.

SpeakUP has hosted world-class poets including Joel McKerrow, Luka Lesson, Zohab Khan and Manal Younus and is always an unforgettable night.

$10 at the door, with all profits supporting Musicians Making a Difference (MMAD).


The Sydney based singer/songwriter Pasko produces music that can best be described as universal soul, with smattering of all manner of styles, from Funk, Blues, R&B, Pop, through to Rock and even Classical.

Pasko's creative music style was shaped by years of slogging it out in the Sydney pub scene, covering tunes by the likes of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Rufus Wainwright and Allen Toussaint. However while most artists try to emulate the sound of idols they grew up with, Pasko simple writes from the soul & allows his songs to grow their own wings.

Pasko has had an excitingly diverse career to date with gigs at the Sydney Opera House, TV & Radio, on cruise ships, writing music for film and collaborated with the Aussie music greats such as Charlie McMahon (Gondwanna Land band) recording the DiDj Heart album and Ray Goodwin (Dragon, JPY & The All Stars) recording the latest album "The Lonesome Traveller".
