This time around the team will deliver for your entertainment pleasure: A returning great favourite entertainer, Fiona Ryan with her fabulous flute, keyboard and captivating original originals; Rod Sims with his hearty vocal/guitar style; Barbara Brewster and whichever wacky warblers she can conjure up for this show; Simon Janes with beautiful guitar/vocals; Jaeden Ogden, a young performer with amazing guitar/vocal/blues style and power; and 15 Minutes’ very favourite Rainer Eichhorn with his great vocal power and captivating style.

On the way to the venue, check out David White’s 100,000 Christmas-lights display at 35 Summer Hill Close, Stokers Siding, from 8 till 10pm each night. Donations to Murwillumbah Leukaemia & Cancer Research Society Inc.
