The Chris Cook Band sings Slim Dusty. Chris Cook met Slim Dusty in Coffs Harbour in 1977. They met up again in the Northern Territory about 20 years ago and went fishing together on the Roper River. A firm friendship was established between them which remained strong for the last 12 years of Slim's life. Slim Dusty recorded three of Chris' songs - "When the Country's Wet", "Diggin' a Hole in my Guitar" and "Rollin' Down the Road". Chris plays energetic country guitar, skilful and toe-tapping fiddle and highly polished bluegrass/hillbilly banjo. He is an enthusiastic and engaging performer with over 35 years experience whose infectious vitality, distinctive and inimitable style and musical competence ensure an entertaining and enjoyable show. He's backed by Robert Renfrew on double bass and Jamie Cantwell on drums and percussion. The Show is presented with the knowledge and approval of Slim Dusty's wife Joy McKean.

But before the guys make their way back into the studio they insisted on hitting the road to visit some of their favourite regional hotspots. This event is for all ages.

Love is on the air! Pull up a cabaret seat and tune in when outrageously ocker duo Barbara and Barry bring the laughs, love and music with Sweet, Sour and Saucy. The 1950s inspired radio talkback jazz cabaret features songs of yesteryear from Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Eartha Kitt, along with a dose of dodgy relationship advice from these self-appointed "experts on love". Barbara and Barry (real life couple Melissa Western and Tnee Dyer) will charm lovers and lonely hearts with their knockout vocals, virtuosic piano playing, witty repartee ... and something they call 'erotic spoons'. The brassy banter between the pair is a laugh-out-loud delight as the vintage musical duo solve - or at least, attempt to solve - dilemmas of the heart. There are some surprises in store too as Barbara and Barry reach out into the audience, making for some hilarious moments of audience interaction.

They'll sing and dance to fun-filled jazz numbers, magical nursery rhymes and rocking originals. It's high energy musical fun for the young and the young at heart. They are committed to entertaining and engaging children using quality original music and narrative driven, story-telling techniques. They use audience participation (offstage and onstage) to enhance feelings of joy, wonder and spontaneity thus authenticating the experience of adventure for the audience. They draw on their sophisticated skills in music making and theatre, adapting them for the under six years market. Adventure Time includes well known songs like Row Your Boat, Baby Face and Monster Mash.
