Get Hairy

Get Hairy is month-long event in August to assist in raising money for the Foundation so that we can continue to provide support and assistance to emerging Tasmanian musicians.


If you are unable to grow a Beard, you can still become a CrowdRaiser, all you need to do is ditch something that you love (like chocolate) for the month.


Nick was also extremely passionate about Movember, and therefore we have decided to donate 50% of all funds raised through this event to the Movember Foundation.

Who We Are

Following the sudden passing of Nick, our much loved friend, brother, cousin, son, grandson and soulmate this foundation was formed as a way of continuing to celebrate his music and support other emerging musicians to live their dream. With all of this in mind, his friends and family are working together to develop a grant in his honour for an up-and-coming musician to go to that next level that Nick was always striving for.



Who is Nick Balcombe?

Nick was a passionate Tasmanian living his his dream. While a very successful web designer and a much valued employee of the water industry, his passion was his music and loved ones. Following his tragic death due to stroke, his vast network of friends and fans have been keen to do something that celebrates his life and achievements, and create a legacy that Nick would be proud of.



 The Grant

All up and coming musicians would understand how hard, and expensive it is to make a living and to “crack the big time” in the music industry. Through Nick’s legacy the Nick Balcombe Foundation (NBF) offers a ‘leg up’ via an annual grant to a motivated and enthusiastic up and coming musician and/or band from Tasmania. We want to help you live your dream so that Nick’s can live on.
