Toni Sharp will be the featured artist at the next Parkes and District Country Music muster on Sunday, November 17, at 1pm in the Starlight lounge at the Parkes Services Club.
Members and guests may remember Toni from her recent appearance at the Bedgerebong Country Music Campout in early October.
Walk-up artists are encouraged to come along and join in.
September Muster - what a great start to spring with all the country music events going on around the area and our own muster featuring Phil Redenback.
Phil is definitely no stranger to Parkes audiences and his music certainly gets the toes tapping and the dancers up on the floor.
Sharing performing time with Phil was Mick Bruce, Barry Joseph, Gary Hollier, Craig Manderson and Greg Jankowski from Dubbo, Bruce Toole and Garry Hemming from Forbes, Ken Chalker from Cowra and Lindy Charlton from Parkes.
It was great to see Garry and June Hemming back on board.
Thanks again to the Dubbo crew for taking up band duties alongside Lindy, Brian and Pam.
Our members jackpot draw of $80 went to a well deserved Gary Hollier.
As was extensively advertised there was no muster held in October due to clashes of dates for our usual day with the Services Club, who are great sponsors of our Country Music Club and endeavour to provide free of charge the Starlight Lounge for our use whenever possible.
However there were many other festivals and events taking place around the region at Bedgerebong, Aria Park, Rosewood and Mildura and Dubbo Orana Club function being held on the last Sunday of the month.
