Excellent show and dinner with most of the audience coming all the way from Noosaville. Just listening to the 2012 personally autographed 18 track CD, very easy listening, pleasant mix of vocals, guitars and backing harmonies. All enjoyable.

Award winning yet humble local musicians entertained all with the personalised combination of songs, bush poems and jokes while we enjoyed a country home cooked style meal. Very warm hospitality in a comfortable clean venue.
