Mainstreet Band - Gargarro Garden's Soundshell
There’ll be a rather nice afternoon of music coming our way on Anzac Day, Sunday 25 April. The Melbourne based ‘Mainstreet Band’ is coming to Girgarre for a variety concert to be held over in the Soundshell from 1:30pm until 3.30pm. The Mainstreet Band has been a popular act on the music circuit now for 20 years. They are known for their generous support of worthy projects and the Committee of the Gargarro Botanic Gardens Inc. sincerely thank them for donating their music in support of the Gardens.
The band has a core group of talented musicians featuring, vocals, guitars, drums and violins. They are a regular feature at many and varied festivals and fundraisers, including such groups as a Motor Cycle club, a bush fire fundraiser evening and were a major band at the 12 hour Woodend Music Festival. Accompanied by guest artists and at times, visiting international musicians they offer a variety of styles sure to please everyone.
Beginning with a classic set blues rock and rock and roll, the afternoon will also include a tribute to Anzac Day led by Mary Petts and William Pitts, followed by the mellow tones of Skye Tavai, a Cook Islander vocalist now living in Australia who will be accompanied by acclaimed guitarist, Joe Gigliotti from Music Land. The afternoon will wind up with another classic set by the band, joined on stage by their guest artists, for a grand finale.

Invite a friend or two and be prepared for a pleasant afternoon supporting your local Gargarro Gardens project. (Irene Labbett)
