Featuring Local Talent & Special Guest Artists

Due to the weather, the last Locals Only show had to be cancelled. As much as we all look forward to seeing the show, it was deemed to be better safe than sorry. The lineup included a very special guest duo as well as another surprise guest artist. Luckily, though, they will both be available for the next show on the 30th September. The organisers were really looking forward to seeing the duo in action.

In other news, Erin May have released their new film clip to their original song ‘Spider ‘ on YouTube making this the second one, following their ‘Moonshine ‘ film clip. Check out both of them. Erin May is another one of the great finds of the year at Locals’. Both film clips were shot and edited by Cavell Schipp, also an accomplished musician with his own band. It was really special to see the return of Dave Lynch jr last Friday night and regulars were left wondering if there’s anything he can’t sing and play.

He’ll be back on the 14th September from 5ish – 9 pm. Also noticed a very good article on Jack James in the Mini Bribie Islander, written by Neil Wilson. He does a fantastic job of his column Entertainers around the Island, full of lots of information about our favourite musicians, which we wouldn’t know otherwise.

Returning to the Friday night stage this month, is Grant Daniel, an all-around great musician and vocalist. In answer to those who keep asking when he’s due back, his very busy schedule, especially on Friday nights makes it difficult to lock in dates but happy to say we’ve managed to secure his show for a couple of appearances over the next couple of months. The next Local’s Only Show is on 30th September from 1-5pm. It’s also NRL Grand Final day so a huge turnout is expected. Guitarist, Peter Orr has told organisers that he might be bringing along a couple of guests to play, as well.

Upcoming Events

14th September. 5pm- 9pm. Dave Lynch Jr. …to see is to believe. Guitarist /Vocalist extraordinaire! This is one of those performances that you’re going to remember for some time afterwards.
