Whenever I hear the word DREAM, I automatically think about that famous reply by Darryl Kerrigan (Michael Caton) in the movie, “The Castle” when he says, “Tell ‘em they’re dreaming” and the fact that we all dream about things from time to time will be the theme for the next Bribie Gleemen concert on October 20th. The Gleemen have entitled their upcoming outing, “Men Can Dream” and Publicity Officer John Gaffy has told me that as a fundraiser to support the Drought Relief campaign, the concert will feature songs that encourage gentlemanly optimism, wistfulness, valour and regret along with the occasional (but quite appropriate) amorous thoughts.
If past performances are any indication, this Saturday afternoon show will be one that should not be missed and seats are expected to fill quickly on the day. ‘At our last concert which was to raise funds for the Bribie Moreton Hospice Health Service, we were expecting an audience of about one hundred,’ said John. ‘We ended up with over two hundred,’ he added. As a band of men with good voices who take pleasure in being able to sing and entertain, the Bribie Gleemen have been performing throughout the district for many years now and it seems that they are becoming more popular each year.
After this concert, they will be planning for their Christmas show which will be held at the Uniting Church Hall in December. The venue for the “Men Can Dream” concert is the Bribie Island Recreation hall in First Avenue and the start time on October 20th is 1.30 pm. Tickets will be sold at the door and admission cost of fifteen dollars will include light refreshments. For anyone who wishes to make a further donation to the Drought Appeal, there will be a collection bucket at the door.
