Gundiah Hall’s 90th Birthday is coming up on Saturday 11 May offering not one, but two local stars...
Lex K is a member of the pioneer Kunst family that settled in Munna Creek near Miva.
He is an established Country Music recording artist with Kross Kut records, songwriter and wellknown local performer.
He has performed at Gundiah Hall since the 70’s when he performed with GALA Sounds.
Lex has won the Tamworth Songwriters Associaton award for Songwriting (2005). And many other awards for songwriting across Queensland over the years.
Lex has written 62 songs and had 42 recorded, 7 by other artists.
He is on the Country Music Rock of Recognition for his contribution to Country Music.
Lex is also an organiser and the energy behind the Munna Creek Country Music Festival every October.
He is a ‘platinum donator’ and lifetime member of the Flying Doctors Association. His new album coming out this month is “A Well Travelled Road”.
He has organised our performers and been gracious in donating his time and credibility to the Hall’s 90th event.
Phil Truscott and ‘Family’. The other reluctant, home grown performer is none other than our Division 2 councillor, Phil Truscott. Phil has performed with the Christian group ‘Family’ since the 70s. They held the record for selling the most Records/tapes/CD’s of any Christian Artist in Australia. Family released 18 albums including compilation albums and 15 singles in the UK, USA and Australia and were recorded in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Los Angeles and Nashville.
Family has been the only Christian artist ever to be invited to sing for an Australian Prime Minister, Queensland Premier and Miss Australia Function.
Family won a Country Music Award at the Tamworth Country Music Festival for “This House Runs On Sunshine”.
All this fame for the Gundiah Hall’s 90th anniversary, but Phil’s performance comes at a price.
He says he will ONLY do a number if we raise enough cash for the Hall. So dig deep and make a donation to ‘Make Phil Play’. See our website: gundiahgazette.com.au for a link to paypal donations. (DO IT TODAY AND MAKE PHIL PLAY!!)
