Great yarns, great music and a little bit of



That’s what’s in store on the banks of The Mehi on the second weekend of September, 2016.

Now if you don’t know what bocce is, don’t panic – it’s bit like bowls but you play in the sand.

No doubt you’ve got your head around the yarns and music side of the show.

Mitch Johnstone, Mitch Cosh and Murray Hartin have teamed up to organise what will be a fantastic weekend of entertainment at “Wandoona”, just off Gwydirfield Rd, Moree.

It kicks off on Friday night, September 9, with Muz and his exceptionally talented poetic counterpart and former Naked Poet Marco Gliori putting on their very popular 2-man show – but with a difference.

Threaded in and around the yarns will be a couple of other former locals providing the musical side of the evening.

Luke Butler is drifting down from Goondiwindi with his son, Sam, while Andrew Simpson will make his way west from Armidale. And let’s not forget a whole lot of laughs from comedian Alan Glover.

Saturday begins at midday with a bit of music and then it’s time for the kids to display their talents in the rhyming verse department in three divisions – under 8s, 9s-12s and 13 and over. There will be prizes but it’s all about putting the kids on stage. And if any of their musical mates want to belt out a tune they will be more than welcome.

Throw in sausage sizzles, giant paellas, pizzas and, of course, the bocce, and it will be a great afternoon.

The headline for the Saturday night concert will be 6-time Golden Guitar-winner Luke O’Shea, preceded by Muz, Marco, Luke and Sam + Lousy Jack, Simmo and Al.

There is a bar from 6pm-9.30pm on both nights, which will wrap up by 10pm.

Sunday is a very casual 3-hour Poets’ Breaky kicking off at 9am with yarns, music, comedy and again some of the kids will be invited back for an encore performance.

This year’s event will support The Westpac Rescue Helicopter and The Pallamallawa Public School.

Cost of entry to the event will be $25 for the Friday night, $30 all of Saturday, $20 for the Sunday breaky or a 3-day pass for $60. These prices will be a bit cheaper on line at 

Kids under-18 get in free.
