We are striving to become a global leader in the music industry whilst making a positive contribution to our community and the world.
Over the last 2 years we have had the pleasure of working with a variety of world class artists and record labels including The Strokes, Middle Kids, Caroline Records, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Bad//Dreems, Good Boy, The Growlers, Big White, Kobalt Label Services, Dine Aline Records, YAK, Grenadiers, The Ocean Party, Morning TV, Clea, Fountaineer, Ben Wright Smith and many more.
I am a rock ‘n’ roll accountant with more than 10 years’ experience in the Australian Music Industry. I worked for six years at Secret Service / Dew Process as the in-house accountant under the business manager, Brian Quinn, doing all things business for the bands on the Secret Service roster, as well as accounting for the management company and record label.
Six years ago, I started my own business, RSM Accounting, specialising in tax and accountancy matters for bands and musicians. This includes but is not limited to show settlements, income reconciliation, invoice payments and book keeping, as well as handling all tax and compliance matters relating to lodgement with various government agencies.
If you or your band need a hand with any of the above, I can certainly help you out.

Jungle Love Festival
Now heading into its third year, the Jungle Love Music and Arts Festival has rapidly gone from the little-DIY-festival-that-could to one of the region’s most vibrant and punter-friendly.
We are proud to announce an epic 53-act line-up, a veritable smorgasbord of the best rising talent the great south east can muster across three jam-packed stages. Acting more as a surreal wonderland than a music festival, every part of Jungle Love has been meticulously pored over to provide a liberating and immersive experience for all attendees.
A luscious campsite nestled under a breezy canopy of trees, surrounded by a freshwater stream (that you can swim in) is the backdrop, and music is the soundtrack. Pulling out an array of impressive one-of-a-kinds; creativity is at the core of every planning stage and Jungle Love 2016 steps it up a notch. Featuring a massive two story treehouse-bar towering above the site in between the two main stages, the top floor will function not only as a brilliant place to take in the serene surroundings but also as a dedicated gold bar, for artists and those who want to embrace the full Jungle Love experience.
In addition to this brand new bar, we have a few other surprises in store. Whispers have begun of secret micro-venues dotted across the site. Hidden experiences and pleasant surprises are a Jungle Love tradition; stumble across visual art installations and impromptu performances, but those with a keen eye or a little bit of luck might find themselves in secret locations, immersed in weird and wonderful circumstances.
Jungle Love is a 100 per cent inclusive environment. Plus, a festival with ‘Love’ in the name should probably celebrate just that. Right? Hardcore Jungle Lovers can make it official any way they want with an (unofficial) ceremony in the Jungle Love on site chapel The Sanctuary of Seduction. The bikes are also back this year, but with a twist. The festival declares its love for all people (especially the LGBTQ community) by offering up free rainbow coloured bicycles to ride across the site. Pick up a bike, it’s yours. Not using it? Pay it forward to the next gem with tired feet.
To top it all off, this absolute paradise is BYO and culinary options are in abundance with offerings far superior to the typical daggy dagwood dog one might find elsewhere. Not only will your taste buds thank you but your belly will too. So come celebrate life, celebrate music, celebrate creativity and celebrate friendship. Float in the creek with a beer, discover your new favourite band and meet your new best mates. The Jungle Love community awaits.
According to Google there are two meanings behind our company. There is Mucho Bravado (n.) – an independent Brisbane-based music company specialising in artist management, music marketing, public relations and large-scale event promotion. And Mucho Bravado (v.) – to perform a large show of bravery or defiance. Both meanings are relevant.
Our little team consists of fearless leader Ben Preece, lead PR ladies Viv Mellish and Liz Ansley and intern amigos Becky Bartlett and Laura Flynn. We’re all about sharing is caring and that includes our office space which we split with sister company White Label Servicing.
