Really liked a Melbourne based blues/soul band called Blue Eyes Cry last year. Hope they come again.

Sounds really good. One of the venues is the Haruru Falls Panorama Resort which also happens to have 42 powered RV parking sites. So...... Doreen and I will be staying there August 6/7/8/9 plugged into the mains with a free shuttle bus to other venues right at the door. A pass to all three days of the festival is just $50.

Wow! What a show that turned out to be. With 48 individual acts there was something for everyone.
Here, for example, is a video of my top performers. I loved them, bought the CD, bought the T-shirt.
My dear wife hated them - but then she doesn't like Janis Joplin either.

It would take a death in the family to keep us away next year.... even then.....

hi missed all that, we were imprisoned with more mundane things, could we have more forum alerts available on site to the good times/ events we might miss due to not being on line or alert enough cheers earle

Problem would be Earle, that if you're not on line you won't see the alerts either. Can't see a way round that. Maybe best log in say once a week and check the Gig Guide thread.

Cheers
