Oz Bayldon – A Time For Change

Image source: IN Noosa Magazine

Oz Bayldon is a rare bread. He’s a world record holder for a number of unique gigs, like the highest concert on land which happened in Nepal and he’s working on a few other record-breaking plans, including the longest performance down the Amazon River in South America, and the craziest gig, which will include a performance on top of a hot air balloon.

The question I can hear you asking is why?

Oz has been a musician and an event and venue manager for over 20 years, most of that time in London, and he admits he lived a clichéd sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle until a trip to Nepal where he met a group of local children who’d been repeatedly, physically abused by their parents and gang members, and then the kids with their broken limbs, were made to beg for money on the streets.

This was a life-changing moment for Oz.

Listen to the podcast now. Then read more about the Noosaville local who’s changed the lives of kids here and all over the world, in Oz Bayldon’s story.
