The three original Wickety Wak members – Greg Doolan, Rob Rosenlund and Tony Jeffrey, along with the brilliant female singer Laura Doolan, are set to lighten the mood of Lismore tonight (Friday July 11) with one of their typical, fantastically funny Wickety Wak performances.

Greg Doolan says that he has seen a need to lighten the mood for the many people struggling in today’s economic climate. He wants to give a little of that everlasting Wak magic and let the audience ‘take a Wak pill and ease the stresses of everyday life’.

Adding to the Wak magic tonight will be the soothing voice of Laura Doolan, who is already known far and wide for her magnificent vocals. However, her talent goes far beyond her voice, as Laura is described as ‘a sweetheart of a person who can lighten up a room with her heartfelt aura’.

This ‘Waky’ combination is unique in Australia – four wonderful voices working in harmony or solo with the addition of the masterful entertainment skills of Greg Doolan – Australian Variety Performer of the Year.

See for yourself that the appeal of Wickety Wak is still apparent to every age group that witnesses the skills acquired over their successful 35-year career. Do yourself a favour – give yourself a mind break – and enjoy Laura and the Wickety Wak guys in this show named after their affectionate nickname – The Wak Boys…

Wickety Wak Boys – Lismore Workers Club, Friday July 11 at 7.30pm.
