Time to put on those dancing shoes
The award-winning Sunshine Coast Concert Band is set to get people up on their feet and swinging when they put on their last dance for 2007 on Saturday, October 13 at the Kawana Community Hall.
The band has been hosting dances for years and they have become a regular fixture on the calendar for those who want to get out and enjoy old favourites such as the foxtrot, modern waltz, cha cha and, of course, rock and roll.
The 40 piece concert band led by Musical Director, Ken Chadwick and accompanied by singers Bev Gourlay, Jane Michele and Alan Winter will be performing some of the big sounds of American Patrol, L-O-V-E, Malaguena, String of Pearls, At the Jazz Band Ball, Golden Wedding, Sway and In the Mood.
Over the years the band has raised funds for charities across the Coast including the Lions Club, Rotary, Nambour Special School, Nambour Children's Hospital, Queensland Cancer Council, Legacy and many more.
"The support for the band has been fantastic this year and as a result we were able to get out there and raise much needed funds for a range of local charities," Musical Director, Ken Chadwick said.
The evening which is BYO is from 7:30 - 11pm and tickets cost $15. As these dances are usually sold out, it is advisable to arrange tickets in advance by contacting 5450 6680. The Kawana Community Hall is off Pt Cartwright Drive in Nanyima Street, Buddina.
