    Troy Cassardaley at TREC

    January 25, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 35 °C

    One if our main paid entertainment is here at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment Centre. We are seated well ahead of time and waiting for the show. After 10 minutes about half the people are here and already seated. The show was one of the best. Two hours with 15 guests.

    All outstanding performers who will take country music forward. Stand out performer was a young Finian Johnson. His voice is outstanding and I reckon he will be one to watch. We had also seen him at Bill Chambers show.

    Tonight we are seeing Lee Kernaghan.

    Busby Marou

    January 24, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Whenever we have the chance, we catch up to Jeremy and Tom. These guys are local to where we live and we have known them for a long time.

    The show was in the Goonoo Goonoo room at the Longyard Hotel. (Goonoo Goonoo is actually pronounced Gunna Goonoo.

    The show was opened by Brad Butcher. He had been nominated for awards at Tamworth this year. Not bad for a nearly local Mackay boy.

    Busby Marou put on another great show but surprised us all presenting is to a young Rockhampton girl who sang a song. (I will have to add more details later)

    Brothers 3 at Longyard Hotel.

    January 24, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 38 °C

    Today we have two paid shows here. The first is Brothers three. These boys are long time Tamworth favourites. We first heard of them a couple of years ago when they appeared on a TV talent show.

    They may have overdone the sibling rivalry act a bit but the singing is to die for. These lads are a great natural talent. Tight harmonies and great skills on the instruments. The real surprise though for me was hearing Taizen sing a unique version of Hallelujah.

    Pam bought 5 CD's and then downloaded the newly released album from iTunes. This is the it 10th year performing. All vocals are very tight with impressive harmonies.

    Last Shows at Tamworth Festival 2018

    January 28, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    We are seeing the Whistle Dixie band this afternoon at the Southgate tavern. We have already seen this band but they are way best this afternoon has to offer. Tonight we head to the Bicentennial Park for the closing ceremony.

    {edit}
    We returned back to the cabin with a decent storm hitting as we boarded the bus. We arrived back at the Tourist park just ahead of the storm but it did not last long.

    Sitting around with a cuppa we decided we would not go back to the park after all. We setup the Samsung tablet to stream the live feed and enjoyed the concert from the lounge. The only bit we really missed out on was the fireworks. We were not that terribly upset by not having to wrangle our chairs on the expected crowded busses.

    Those following my posts here or Pam's Facebook page will realize how many shows we have seen while we have been here. I am still catching up so come back later and I may have added some posts.
