Final Friday February Fiesta this week in Nhill
The third of the Friday February Fiestas for 2018 will be held at the Nhill Lake Foreshore Reserve this Friday and is shaping up to be a dancers dream.

Rock and Roll, Swing and a touch of Rhythm, Blues and Soul is the theme for the evening which features Oozin Blues, a band that has been a feature on the music scene since the late 1980’s.

Drummer Steve Parry is a Mallee farmer and bassist Sammi James comes from Stawell. Sammi’s style is a mixture of funk, disco and fusion. Front man and singer Tony Edwards with Neil Rote on Guitar complete the line up

They will be supported by Blurred Lines, a band originating in Horsham which has played all over the Wimmera region for the last 10 years, specialising in Classic Rock, Top 40 Hits and all the best songs from the 60s to the present.

Graeme King, lead vocals, Bernie Hill, vocals and guitar, Trevor Howie, drums and Mark Enwright on bass guitar make up the group who have a big following due to their consistently professional sound and upbeat music.

Opening the program on Friday will be the Nhill College Band which is gathered from music students in both the junior and senior bands under the supervision of Music teacher Catherine Bates.

This year the band will be performing at the Stawell Music Camp, the Mega Music Day, the Horsham Eisteddfod and are currently in rehearsal for the school production of “JER” and the upcoming Horsham Arts Council production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”.

Rock and Roll is the mood of the night and Janeth Rebarbas and her Philipino friends from Horsham will show is how it’s done with a Rock and Roll Dance demonstration. To round out the multicultural aspect of the night the local Karen community will perform their famous and complicated ‘Bamboo Dance’.

The worldwide fascination with Dreamcatchers can also be explored on Friday evening with a workshop giving the children (and older ‘kids’ too) the opportunity to make wonderous creations with rings, beads, feathers and twine. This activity will continue into the night under lights in the Craft Marquee.

Friday 16th February 2018 is the final night of this series Fiestas, so is the last chance for this season to enjoy some great music and dancing, fill up on delicious food and just sit back and be entertained.

The evening starts at 7.00 p.m. and entry is $5.00 and under 15s get in for free.
