LAST FRIDAY: What wears a suit with a jewel-encrusted turban on top with a feather in it? ROB PRICE … that’s what! What a superstar. He can sing, he can play and he can dance. AND he can wear a silly hat and still look like a superstar. The stakes just went up a notch for our ‘Best Entertainer Of The Season’ awards. I can’t wait for Trophy Night. Mr Price will be giving Sally Ford, Eugene Hamilton and Danny Walsh a run for their money, but WAIT! They’ll have to outdo one of the best in the biz when Tanya Lee Davies brings us her ‘Girls, Girls, Girls DO ELVIS’ show.

FRIDAY Aug 17th: LUCKY OCEANS will be special guesting with the amazingly talented Collingwood Casanovas and King Arthur. What a GIG this’ll be. The Collingwood Casanovas are urban bluegrass with plenty of fire and spark, going from burning picking to sweet harmonies with just the right amount of rough edges. With King Arthur. Expect flashy fiddle playing, fiery telecaster licks, and sweet steel guitar sounds, all over a powerful honkytonk beat. King Arthur will romp you through a golden era of American music. Both bands will be joined by LUCKY OCEANS on lap and pedal steel. I’ve also got word that Tracey ‘Country Cousin’ Miller will be joining the boys for a song or two. BOOK here for the Big HOE-DOWN with Lucky Oceans. Bookings highly recommended.
