Last month’s Sunday Special Jam featured African musician Kobya
The Billinudgel Hotel’s monthly Sunday Special Jam, brings artists to the stage who would not normally have that opportunity.
January’s Sunday Special Jam featured African musician Kobya, Aussie virtuoso guitarist Geoff Wright, Aussie drumming legend Loui Burdett as well as many others who set the crowd on fire.
As we hurtle towards February, what does the team behind the scene have in store for you this month?
This Sunday the special guests are coming to the Billinudgel Hotel straight from the Tamworth music festival, so you will definitely be getting a big serve of country music, featuring sassy singing sensation Leslie Averil.
Leslie, who is based in Melbourne, has been a professional singer for many years and is well respected in country and the wider music scene.
Accompanying her is Mr Rod Coe on bass. Rod has a high profile in country music and amongst his achievements he was Slim Dusty’s bass player for many years.
Australian guitar legend Geoff Wright will also make a return appearance. Geoff has played with many greats including Max Merrit, Tina Arena and JJ Cole.
On drums will be well known local musician Grant Robertson.
Sunday’s session will also feature local lovely Lou Bradley, who wows them out at the Tamworth festival and anywhere else she plays. Lou has something extra up her sleeve, with husband Phil on guitar, banjo and mandolin.
It is rumoured that newly formed local band Weatherless will be making their debut appearance featuring the sterling talents of a bunch of our own local boys.
So make sure you get yourself down to the Billi backyard on Sunday from 3pm for a fabulous afternoon of music on the big stage. Enjoy the atmosphere and good vibes, sit back, relax and enjoy or get up & dance.
If you’re wanting to be part of the jam on the day, arrive early to ensure a spot.
