05/09/20 Richard Keegan – Radio Blue Mountains RE Margret RoadKnight Five years ago. Really ? I was the support act downstairs for that gig. It was a huge thrill to be on the same gig as Margaret and a brilliant that there are businesses like Fusion Boutique who bring in great musicians to the mountains, and who support local acts like me.
I think I will have to feature Margaret’s music on Monday’s Australian Music Masters on Radio Blue Mountains. Thanks Charity for reminding me of this great memory.
04/09/20 Rosie McDonald Charity Mirow your gigs are really very special and I hope you get back to presenting them again soon. The RAPT gig in such a wonderful iconic venue was a treasured gig. Thanks for the reminder.

Their pop up bar has a good variety of quality food and drinks. I will be keeping an eye out for future events.
11/02/18 Lolo Lovina And it’s because of you dear Fusion Boutique Presents that the musical arts scene is alive and kicking in the Mountains
Lolo Lovina Thank you for having us Charity! Was a super special evening this one <3 The contribution that you make to the Mountains community and to the musical arts community of Australia..not to mention to touring OS artists is absolutely incredible. The effort, energy and love you pour into every detail of your business (and all of ours) is second to none. From decorating venues, creating gorgeous posters, taking care of artists needs, marketing, promotion etc.. etc.. all with a little gorgeous bundle that is less than 1yr old is just WOW!! (I don’t think I got out of my pj’s or left the house for the first 3 years of parenting!!) Bravo bravo standing ovations to you
Louise Sawilejskij Fusion Boutique Presents – you are such a great team to work with and an absolute inspiration to me and our Hut team. THANK YOU for everything you do within the mountains commuity and the live music industry. We urge all Blue Mountains community to get behind this team too and support live music in your area. I can’t wait to come visit again soon <3
23/10/17 RE Cass Eager at the Metropole What an awesome night that was – great venue, great service and obviously – loved the music. Thanks!! Kelly
Katoomba Music just back from this gig. .Sarah McLeod was loud and fabulous. This was a committed rock gig. Sarah’s voice so powerful and melodic. Mick Skelton’s drums a joy. Sarah has sorted lots of bass out of her guitar so don’t worry about this being a two piece. Thanks Charity for getting this act here.
20/08/17 Brian Smith RE Davidson Brothers Fantastic Show These two “Red Devils” and thier terrific band..provided the most exhilataring and intimate show..A Great Idea realisied as a result of great prepartion by Fusion Boutique and a 1st Class Perfomance by Lachlan, Hamish and their Merry Band of Minstrals. They gave us a “Nine Pound Hammer” and more.
Katoomba Music 12/07/17 Celebrating our much-loved Charity Mirow of Fusion Boutique Presents today and her and Tim’s gorgeous baby girl Winter ❄️ this photo was taken at Katoomba’s community centre where local band Sonori & The Rhythm Hut’s the @rhythmhunters played a couple of months back – an inspiring, energised night which Fusion Boutique promoted. Katoomba’s live music scene is so lucky to have such an excellent promoter. You maintain such a standard of excellence, even with the added element of Winter in life & business, which while we would never expect we appreciate & are in awe of – THANK YOU
The Coconut Kids We want to say a sincere thank you for the kind and generous hospitality we received at the gig last night and what a beautiful venue! Special mentions to the indubitably talented Belle Jar and the super hard working Charity from Fusion Boutique Presents.
02/07/17 Julien Joel Clement That was a fabulously fun gig. Loved it!
19/06/17 Deb Dare I love the Metropole guesthouse I’ve been there several times for concerts now and they are brilliant.

Cathy Kirkpatrick, Nomadic Fish Productions As this year draws to a final curtain, I want to pay tribute to one of the finest people I know: Charity Mirow. Charity has enriched the cultural life of the Blue Mountains by working tirelessly as she hosts show after show, gig after gig, magical presentation after stunningly beautiful and life-changing performance by some of this world’s most exceptional artists. She is a true facilitator and advocate of art.
I had the pleasure of first meeting Charity in 2014 when she engaged Mic Conway’s National Junk Band to play at the Katoomba RSL. She offered a good guarantee, then proceeded to work her guts out to ensure that an audience was present, costs were covered, the RSL was happy, and the band were elated and very well looked after.
As an independent operator (Fusion Boutique), she has scoured every orifice of the Blue Mountains, finding the best (and usually undeveloped) places where performances can take place. She instinctively matches each artist to the best situation, and sweats blood (and presumably some tears) until “it works”.
Charity, people like you are GOLD. Without you, my job would be nigh impossible (and a lot less fun). My hat goes off to you! Looking forward to a new year of surprises and adventure.
Much, much love.
Susanne Evans Absolutely! Charity Mirow: you rock this place, and we really appreciate your work.
Garrie Sinclair Ditto Cathy Kirkpatrick [ although I’ve not met her I do remember her “attention to detail” when I had Hat n Cara perform there back in………………….. ? ]
Louise Sawilejskij Agreed! Charity Mirow is one of the best people I know! Love your work Charity! Have a wonderful Christmas xx
Wallis Bird What a brilliant night I had with her and Tim, here here, bumper night!
Brigitte Grant yes, so agree with this Cathy !
Carole Hampshire Such a great concert on Sunday by Wallis Bird. I’ve never been to the The Metropole Guesthouse, Katoomba before. It’s an amazing olde worlde place. Thanks go to Charity Mirow for organising this event. Wallis blew away a few cobwebs with her immense energy. My mobile phone photos were pretty ho-hum so posting the lovely photos of Brigitte Grant Photography. If you get the chance to see her, go!
Rhythm Hunters: Nov 20th What a night! Katoomba you really know how to turn it up! Thanks for the hospitality, dancing and great vibes! We’ll be back next year- stay tuned!
Huge thanks to Charity at Fusion Boutique Presents for the constant support to us, and to the community in Katoomba. They work so hard and really bring great things to the mountains!
Katoomba Music Oct 29th Thanks to Charity of Fusion Boutique Presents for bringing us such a great show. Leotrix started off a great night on a great note with his live delivery of fun-loving and dance-inducing remixes behind the DJ desk! Sonori’s layered, emotive soundscapes with Lulu’s soaring sensual vocals could have you either moving or frozen, transfixed.
Tijuana Cartel had everyone north of the mixing desk bouncing like a summer festival. They move between lots of grooves and styles, some virtuosic classical guitar, trumpet and percussion trippy pop vocals heavy electronica.
Fusion Boutique should get an award for their work in putting on these events…Oh I think they did!!!
Amy Tyson shared Fusion Boutique Presents’s event. What an epic, wild night. So much fun. I’m glad I live in a town where everyone dances. Tiuana Cartel were insanely unreal. Talented. Sonori were gorgeous. Sounding polished! Thanks Charity, for all that you do. You have a marvelous gift.
10/10/16 Cheryl Adams 5star Went to my first Fusion Boutique gig last night at the Metropole and was very impressed!! I knew l loved “All My Exes Live In Texas” but the venue was a very pleasant surprise. The pop up bar had tasty food and drink and the organisation and atmosphere were impeccable. Well done Charity Mirow. I will definitely be back.
02/10/16 Michelle Robinson Thanks for an amazing evening Frank Yamma
and Charity Mirow.
Had a sweet night with Áine Tyrrell and her fabulous lads. Fine folks! The Metropole Guesthouse, Katoomba is a tasty venue too…. Lots of kudos to Charity Mirow. You are a Blue Mts treasure!
We also ran out of CDs and T-shirts (from the MASSIVE supply we brought:)
Thanks for another awesome weekend Newcastle and Katoomba despite it looking like this most of the time. Thanks to Safe Hands, Majora, Dumbsaint, Sonori and White Gums for being apart of it. An amazing special thanks to Charity who really looks after us and many other bands in Katoomba. We know how hard it is to get things happening and developing scenes in regional areas, and really goes above and beyond to make sure everything runs to a high standard. Especially getting people to come and see a band they’ve never heard of. We even get a real rider and accommodation! (thanks to Hotel Gearin) It’s the small things. Thanks Charity! Checkout Fusion Boutique Presents for Shows in the Blue Mountains. – We Lost The Sea
Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen It was a pleasure to be back in the mountains, thanks for making us welcome, we had a ball!
Look forward to working with you again in the not too distant future!
The Escalators Well, we didn’t see this coming! SOLD OUT IN KATOOMBA. Brilliant to share our music with you all.
Thank you so much for the extraordinary work done by the event promoter Charity Mirow of Fusion Boutique Presents & for all of you – our network of family & friends who helped to get the word out about this gig.
We spent our time actually meeting & talking with music lovers at the gig, so we don’t have any selfies to post.
But we’re really proud of being able to share the ‘sold out’ poster….here it is!
Jenny McIntosh That’s awesome news… Charity is pretty amazing too
Stacey Oldfield reviewed Paragon Cafe — 5 star I recently visited The Paragon for a 3 course dinner and show by the delightful Kristin Hersh. The show was amazing, food was yummy and the service was fantastic! We were greeted with a very warm welcome and were extremely happy with the service. Thank you for a great experience. Can’t wait to visit again.
Gai Lloyd January 29th Bluegrass music and the blue mountains are a great combination. Tonight at The Gearin Hotel was a rare, intimate night of astonishing music. Two groups: Catgut (trio) and One Up Two Down (trio): Superb bluegrass packers, fiddlers instrumentalists and vocalists singing beautiful harmonies in an intimate happy atmosphere. Total treat. So glad I was up here in mountains, to be at such a special night.
We lost the sea event: Kasia Toppo Best gig the mountains has ever seen.
We Lost The Sea – Katoomba, you know how to treat a band! Great crowd. Good times. Probably the best round of applause we’ve ever had and some amazing interpretative dancing. Cheers to Charity and her work with Fusion Boutique Presents promoting the shit out of it and being awesome. We’ll definitely be back!
The Mae Trio – Thank you again to everyone who came out to Hotel Blue, for making us remember why we never want to leave the Blue Mountains every time we visit! Thank you Fusion Boutique Presents for having us and for being such a powerhouse of local music!
08/11/15 George Gerontakos “Wonderful to have such great musicians brought to our home town. Fusion Boutique is helping us maintain a healthy arts culture here. ps. thumbs up for bringing Frank Yamma to Katoomba.”
12/09/15 Gaye Thomas reviewed Fusion Boutique Presents — 5 star Fusion boutique events are so well run. Charity creates a gorgeous inviting environment and everyone is welcomed warmly. The standard of music presented is of the highest level and audiences can be assured of quality every time.
25/08/15 Joseph Zarb RE PURE BOHEMIA Art + Music + Food series Just a big congratulation and huge thanks for last night. That was a stand out succesfull evening and I know you worked hard for it xxx
18/08/15 Inge Courtney-Haentjes reviewed Fusion Boutique Presents — 5 star Friendliness, attention to detail, efficiency and dedication in promoting and creating the right atmosphere for an event… It certainly added some special magic to our concert!
01/08/15 Caroline Barrell Had a lovely evening at Pure Bohemia,at the Paragon cafe with excellent music, company, wine, dinner, life model Amber, and chocolates. Thanks to other attendees I have started using charcoal, and conte crayons. The newly refurbished stage is very good, a huge improvement on the old bar. Well done Charity and team.
18/06/15 Perrin Finlay-Brown You are a dynamo
21/02/2015 Gail Harry RE PURE BOHEMIA = excellence. Pure Bohemia is something you can’t explain – it’s so good. You must be there – unbelievably generous value for your ticket. I thought the model was a token stint, but no – there are fully five and 20 minute poses with the best Django Reinhardt jazz to get you into the zone. (I do believe music making is a super power!) High standard contemporary menu, the service staff can’t do enough for you. There are even sketch pads and materials to make art if you didn’t have your own stuff. Charity is a beacon in the growing live arts-lit-culture scene in the mountains. Be there at the beginning of something important and just enjoy yourself. Wear a cravat, a fringed shawl… think Titanic that didn’t sink. The band played on… art deco forever!
Greg Rich RE Yulefest with Pat Drummond Looks like everyone had a fun night! The setting are beautiful.
Matthew Dennett RE Brittany Shipway’s Broadway Baby A fantastic night!
Geoffrey Weule It was great to catch-up with Charity Mirow last night from Fusion Boutique who is responsible for promoting many of the live gigs here in the Blue Mountains. Charity does a splendid job and last night’s sell-out concert for Margret RoadKnight was no exception.
