Four-piece Bundaberg band Playing with Fire has teamed with Innes Park Country Club for an afternoon of live music and lunch on Sunday, 13 December.
A $20 cover charge includes a light barbecue lunch and helps to kickstart the revival of live music within the Bundaberg region.
Guitarist and vocalist Rob Brearley said the band was keen to put on a show for Bundaberg Region punters and hoped that live music enthusiasts would get behind the event.
“It's been a very tough slog to keep a band rehearsed and ready to play in the face of uncertainty, especially without knowing a date for when live music could return,” Rob said.
“Thankfully, it looks like we might be able to look forward to a more normal time for bands next year.”
Playing with Fire is a relatively new concern on the Bundaberg scene but boasts more than 100 years of accumulated playing experience and have a repertoire of more than 80 songs to choose from.
Lead vocalist Colleen Peterson and Chris Castles (bass and vocals) are Bundaberg products with Rob and drummer Lloyd Bainbridge more recent arrivals to the region.
Rob said a common love of music and playing live were the motivating factors for the band’s formation and all four members prided themselves on being fully rehearsed for and responsive to their audience.
“With a song list drawing on a broad selection of popular artists, including Blondie, Garbage, U2, the Rolling Stones, Midnight Oil and the Kinks, Playing with Fire’s line-up is keen for the return of regular music gigs and is equally at home playing clubs, pubs, festivals, weddings or corporate functions.”
