Illawarra bands will sing for someone else's supper this weekend when Main Street Studios hosts recording sessions to benefit the region's homeless.
Main Street owner Adam Jordan has regularly run discount recording days for bands to get experience in the studio, but this weekend's sessions will be for a good cause.
"I saw a homeless gentlemen in a park and I felt for him. I wanted to buy him a coffee or a water just as a simple gesture, but was worried it may insult him and I didn't do it," Mr Jordan said.
Instead Mr Jordan will donate all proceeds from the special sessions to the Wollongong Homeless Hub.
"Anyone could end up homeless at any time. Nobody wants to be homeless, nobody should be homeless," he said.
All 10 recording slots have been filled at the discounted rate of $150 for two hours' recording and one hour's mixing.
"It gives younger bands who can't usually afford recording fees a chance to come in and record in a real studio," Mr Jordan said.
