ABOUT GRAPE

Established In 1969 by Hamish Henry, the Grape Organisation managed many of Australia's greatest bands and venues. Based in Le Fevre Terrace, Adelaide the offices of Grape were a hub for Adelaide's musos, writers and artists. Grape  and Caine promotions were a thriving and dynamic group of talented people who went onto to become great contributors to the Australian music scene and help cement Adelaide as the centre of creative music in the late 60s and early 70s.

Amongst Grape's many artists, Headband, Lotus, Nostra Damus and Fraternity were the main attraction. Fraternity gained the title of Australia's greatest band in 1971 after winning the Hoadley's Battle Of The Sounds.

 

In 1971 Hamish Henry and his music companies including Music Power went on to organise and promote the Myponga Music Festival, which saw Black Sabbath headline and Daddy Cool steal the show. Grape also ran the popular 'Headquarters' in Adelaide plus a number  other iconic  musical venues along with organising and running multiple promotions and concerts  featuring amongst others  Deep Purple, Free and Manfred Mann at Apollo Stadium and nearly all of Australia's top acts of the time.

Today The Grape Organisation with its new General Manager Victor Marshall continues to promote the interests of Australian bands and its own label. Grape will continue with its tradition of releasing great Australian music and continuing to promote high quality concerts and special events.
