On Wednesdsy night, Nova listeners and special guests were treated to an exclusive performance by one of the world’s most exciting new artists, Stephen Sanchez. Hosted by Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa with Kate Ritchie, the event was held at The Eveleigh by The Grounds in South Eveleigh, Sydney.
After an introduction by Nova’s Mel Tracina, Aunty Joan Bell gave a warm acknowledgment of country. Then, Fitzy, Wippa, and Kate took to the stage to kick off the set.
With a high energy set, Stephen Sanchez has the crowd singing along to, performing hits such as Hold Her While You Can, Mountain Peaks, and Until I Found You.
Despite being too young to drink in his home country of the USA, Sanchez got into the Australian spirit quickly, doing a shoey much to the delight of the crowd.
Special guests included Aunty Joan Bell, Nova’s Chrissie Swan, Home & Away’s Stephanie Panozzo and Juliet Godwin, TikTok star Tilly Oddy-Black, Married At First Sight couple Duncan Simpson and Evelyn Ellis, influencer Chad Hurst, and Nova podcast ‘Back to Reality’ host Taku Chimwaza. Media in attendance included Trent Thomas and Tess Connery from Mediaweek and Tim Wall from Channel 10. Nova executives were also in attendance, including Peter Colosimo, chief operations officer and Brendan Taylor, group program operations director.
