When local clubs and pubs get it very right

I’m a big believer in the notion that if you’ve had a good experience you tell people about it. Too often though these days, people are quick to criticise and complain, but on Saturday night, the only words passing through my lips were the lyrics of the classic hits by Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks.

I’ve been to a lot of concerts in my 40 years, but the Dreams Show–Tribute to Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks–will go down in my books as one of the most memorable. These guys were seriously good.

The electric atmosphere was evenly matched by the musicians’ playing prowess and the singers’ vocals.

As a tribute band, this group is in a league of their own. I have no doubt this will be a concert people will be talking about for a long time to come. For me, it will be a night I remember forever–and not just because of the blisters on the soles of my feet from dancing for three hours straight!

The Tomakin Sports and Social Club absolutely nailed it by selecting this band to feature on its entertainment program. The room was overflowing with positivity and for a few hours no one had a care in the world–it’s what a good night out should be. It was the perfect escape from the daily grind and life’s challenges. Being uplifted by a live music act is hard to beat. And there are plenty out there to choose from, many in our own backyard. From all accounts, The Rubens who played at the Moruya Waterfront was another successful music gig the night before!

On the very same night as the Dreams Show, the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club hosted the Stars of Eurobodalla Dance for Cancer gala fundraising night, which was a sell out event.

Returning to the Tomakin Club, the week before they hosted the 2019 Eurobodalla Business Awards, which was another roaring success.

Eurobodalla locals are being spoilt for choice when it comes to live entertainment and it’s time we made it clear how much value these venues add to our lifestyle here on the South Coast.
