Bundaberg Region residents are invited to head along to Brothers Sports Club on Thursday morning as Channel 9's Today Show crosses live to the venue.
Weatherman Tim Davies will chat with a selection of Brothers’ alumni to discuss the venue’s rise from the COVID pandemic and how Brothers contributed to the community when the cross takes place from from 5.30 am to 8.30 am.
Brothers Sports Club General Manager Ross Dowd encouraged the Brothers and Bundaberg communities to take part and help to create a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere for the live cross.
“We want to display Bundaberg’s community spirit to the nation as they wake up with Today,” Mr Dowd said.
“A large local attendance will help.
“I encourage team colours, community group colours and general supporters to drop in for one of the six crosses, or the whole morning.
“There may be people in the region, like myself, who have been separated from family and friends across the country for quite a period. This offers a unique opportunity to give them a wave also.”
A free sausage sizzle run by Brothers Sports Club volunteers will be available between the live crosses, which are scheduled for 5.30 am, 6 am, 6.30 am, 7.35 am, 8 am and 8.35 am.
Pub choir event part of Today program
Today will also discuss a unique, sold out event to be held at Brothers Sports Club on April 22.
Bundaberg Rum’s Raising the Bar initiative is taking Pub Choir on the road for a tour of select regional licensed venues.
Pub Choir is a musical act founded in Brisbane, and has fans from across the globe, including musical legend Mariah Carey.
At each Pub Choir event a popular song is taught to the audience in three-part harmony, concluding with a whole-of-audience performance, which is filmed for social media.
“We welcome the Raising the Bar initiative to help rebuild the confidence of patrons to return to their ‘local’,” Mr Dowd said.
“We’re very proud to have been selected as one of only seven venues to host the special concert throughout Queensland.
“The Pub Choir event is governed by strict social distancing practices, so tickets were snapped up within hours of tickets becoming available. We have made contact through this process, and hopefully Brothers can bring Pub Choir back when restrictions ease further.”
