The show got off to a great start with the WhamBam ThankYou Band and a stand-in drummer, Paul Humphries sitting in for the day.The two teenagers from Bribie High, Bella Hughes and crowd favourite, Paige Montgomery, showing the crowd what a little determination, some confidence and, a great deal of rehearsal can do. Both young ladies ‘wowed’ the crowd with their respective sets.

Another artist, Wally the Bush poet, entertained us all with his original and very humorous bush poems. As the rain began to come down, Malcolm Smith grabbed his guitar and sang acoustically on the verandah to the delight of patrons.  Eventually ending his set back on stage with the PA going again.

Thanks, Malcolm, for keeping the mob entertained while the electrical stuff was being covered up. An old mate of Locals Only, TJ Mack, who very rarely gets a Sunday off, came to play..and play he did.

He’s a really great performer and Blueys is hoping to get him for one of the Friday night gigs in the next month or so….then the rain came down…so the Shave 4 A Mate was then organised. Once again, the Blueys audience dug deep, not only for the Shave but the Glenn McGrath breast cancer appeal.

5 beards were shaved and another just trimmed by the ladies, Kelly and Maria from the Straight Edge Cutting Bar in Bongaree amid chaotic circumstances. The Shave managed to raise around $800 which was a great help to the recipients.

Photos were taken by Deb Neill and can be seen either on her website or the Bribie Locals Only website.

We would also like to acknowledge the valuable assistance from Flying Fingers Typing Services and our friends at Victory Press who did a wonderful job with the Posters. Next Locals show will be on 29th April from 1-5pm.

See you there. Keep it Local.
