On the way up to Brisbane for the PANZfest 2015 Steelband Festival, those travelling by road decided to take the opportunity to play a couple of gigs along the way to keep our hand in and to break up the trip. Our first gig was at the William Farrer Hotel in Wagga Wagga.
A small group (Rita, Tony, Lisa, Isaac, Jacob, Sharen and Sarah, with visiting guest Steve Lawrie playing percussion) featured in the regular Tuesday Music Trivia Night at the pub, playing introductory snippets of several of our songs and having the contestants guess the name of the song. Obviously we played very well, because most the teams were able to guess correctly! Quite a different format for a gig, but great fun anyway. Afterwards a number of locals stayed back for a few drinks and to ask about the pans and then joined in for a guitar singalong with several band members.
