We had a wonderful weekend of shows in Albury, New South Wales, Australia at the Commercial Club and in Shepparton, Victoria at Riverlinks Eastbank Centre, Shepparton. The weather was a little chilly but our hearts were certainly warmed seeing you all on your feet singing and dancing with us! Such great joy in all the people we meet and play for in regional areas and we want to support and give a shout out to some fantastic local businesses. The band and crew all enjoyed a magnificent brunch at The Proprietor in Albury, followed by fun and games at Twin Cities Tenpin Bowl Wodonga and fantastic coffee and service at Fryers Street Food Store in Shepparton.
