John Carter Cash and Ana Cristina Cash perform House of Cash at Bangalow A&I Hall on Wednesday 18 April

House of Cash

Wednesday 18 April |Bangalow A&I Hall | $48 

Did you know that 27 years ago Johnny Cash went to Stanthorpe to play a show that raised more than $10k for the Blue Nurses? He played to only just more than 500 people in the civic centre. It seems inconceivable that a man who has been so mythologised could have played in such humble circumstances. But Cash is a man of the people. And the legacy lives on, with Johnny and June Carter Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, coming to Bangalow to play a fundraising concert for Feros Care Bangalow Village and Bangalow Arts Society Ltd. Cash’s son has been involved in music all his life and is himself an accomplished and award-winning record producer. He is also a singer/songwriter and author and with his wife, entertainer and songwriter Ana Cristina Cash, he preserves the family legacy as a caretaker to the heritage.

House of Cash, one night only, straight from Nashville, Tennessee, supported by the local legends supergroup Backwater Brethren.

Andy Aid at The Brewery

Andy Aid

Sunday 15th April |Byron Brewery | 5pm | Donation

Andy Rberg, originally from Sweden, had an horrific car accident while on holiday in Bali earlier in the year and did not have travel insurance. Not only was he badly injured, including having metal plates inserted in his

left leg, but he was left with an astronomical hospital bill that will take him years to pay off, especially since he cannot currently work. Mates of Andy are putting on Andy Aid with music from the incredible Kyle Lionheart, Dos Loona, which features Holly Tapp on vocals – she was a finalist on The Voice last year – and up-and-comer Rory ONeil. There is also an art auction featuring some work by Austin Nitsua, and a massive raffle.

Please come down and help Andy get back on his feet
