We all travelled a long way to take part in the opening night of the Slim Dusty Country Music Festival… but then so did most of the audience. 600 people packed into the historic timber hall last Monday night for a 4 hour concert! It was an amazing night with two great bands. The organisers of the festival told us later it was the best opening night in the 14 years that the event has been running. The response from the audience was very positive with many thanking us for ‘bringing God back into country music’. 

We want to thank the ‘Change of Heart’ Bluegrass band from the Sunshine Coast for their performance on the night. A huge thanks to Mark Moulynox (pedal steel - dobro - banjo), George McArdle (Bass guitar), Brendan Huxley (Electric guitar), Jordan Huxley (Drums) and Trentan Kruger (Electric guitar). Thanks also to Peter John from Epik Films and Cheyne Grace for helping out behind the scenes. It was a great team effort!!
