Creative Community

It’s hard to believe it’s almost a year since the 2017 Surrey Hills Music Festival Lead-in Event – a fun filled night enjoyed by all!

This year’s lead-in event is sure to be another great night. This event helps us by raising funds to enable us to keep the Surrey Hills Music Festival (to be held this year from 16 – 18 November) as a free event to be enjoyed by the whole community. We hope you can join us!

Our MC for the evening will be Jon Von Goes from Triple R and JVG Radio Method.

To start the night off, tune up your vocal chords and join in with Melbourne Singer/songwriters Rebecca Barnard & Billy Miller from the Singalong Society, singing your favourite songs from a variety of artists such as Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Billie Holiday, Rolling Stones and more. (Or just listen if you prefer.)

Then, put on your dancing shoes to enhance your enjoyment of more great music from JVG Guitar Method who were once described as sounding like Status Quo with John Laws out the front.

Featuring fantastic A-grade musicians – our MC Jon Von Goes, Ash Davies (Drum Heaven, the Dingoes, Lisa Miller, Matt Walker and many more), Dale Lindrea (Bass Hell and the Vanguards), and Mark Ferrie (Rockwiz Orkestra the Mercurials, the Models, and more), they never fail to put on a good show.

The Port Fairy Folk Festival 2019 promotional material describes their act as “genre hopping stuff in the too hard to categorise basket, where the rhythm is relentless and the ordinary is extraordinary”.

Come and see for yourself if they really do sound like Status Quo – or if they are even better!
