Bairnsdale Country Music Club

The Bairnsdale Country Music Club invited 'Our Kinda Country Club' to put on a show for them today, the 14th of June 2009 at the Bairnsdale R.S.L. That's something different, so when I was asked by Dawn O'Connel if I was interested I accepted.

I really wasn't sure what to expect in the way of equipment, so I brought all of my gear. I was most surprised to find a P.A. and microphones with a sound operator waiting for us. Very nice. I still took in my P.A. as I expect mine has a lower bottom end than there's and I was playing bass for most of the afternoon. Lyndsay and Gail Hammond were also on the show.

I performed solo for the first half hour starting at 1:00 pm, followed by the rest of the club. Lyndsay Hammond sat in on lead guitar for most of the afternoon.

The room was full, the sound was great with an engaged audience, what more could you ask for? Bob Cooper and I performed originals with the others doing covers of standards. In no particular order, the performers were: Bob Cooper, Fiona Waits, Arthur ?, Ron Munn, Lyndsay and Gail Hammond and me.

We finished up at 4:45 pm.

A memorable afternoon.
