On a beautiful Sunday afternoon at Blueys, a very appreciative and large audience witnessed Alby Lincoln handing over the hosting duties, after 10 years behind the wheel, to Dan Burns. Dan then proved that he was the man for the job by running a smooth show with no noise problems and then seeing out the end of the show with his own set, including some of his original material.

Dan’s easy-going style set the stage for all the musicians and audience alike, and he is the beginning of bigger things for Locals Only. The show was further enhanced by the appearance of Jay Bushby, who began his set with the Absent Friends tribute song, ‘I Shall Be Released’. Jay showed an enthusiastic audience some of his original songs and his unique professionalism. An appearance by Erin May, a relatively new band, who have just finished completing their new CD.

These guys are going great and will go a long way. The Think Pink Breast Cancer Research Fund also raised much-needed funds for a very worthy and important cause. The sound gear was provided by the guys from Cool Coda, who will be appearing at a one-off afternoon event on Sunday 8th August at 1 pm.

They play music from the UK, US, NZ & Australia and feature an old Bribie favourite, Shotgun Jim, of ‘College of Beer’ fame an event not to be missed. Thanks to Matterson Knyvett for excellent sound engineering on the Locals show. The next Locals Only Show is on the 29th July commencing at 1 pm and featuring a couple of new acts.
