Go Your Own Way With This Fleetwood Mac Tribute

The illustrious and enchanting Tusk, the Storybook Tribute to Fleetwood Mac, is coming to Airlie Beach, and they are bringing with them charm, character, and class.

Making the line up we have Penni Jones, as Stevie Nicks, who is hauntingly authentic and beautifully poignant, with near perfect renditions of the unforgettable tracks.

With her is Dalys Timpanaro as Christine, James Towers as Lindsay, Rob Brens as Mick Fleetwood and Grant Canterbury as John McVie, a powerful team that ensures this production is perfectly reminiscent of the original act.

“Collectively we share decades of experience from various cover bands in the 90s, 00s and now,” Penni explained.

“We have had tours of Australia and the world doing backing vocals for the country's greatest artists, cruise ship shows and European tours in various original acts.”

Tusk begun with Penni in 2015, wanting to create a more interactive show than the traditional tribute show.

Perfecting the performance to be accurate and beautiful, the audience can’t help but be transported back in time to when Fleetwood Mac shined.

Taking on the Airlie Beach Hotel, Tusk will be entertaining the patrons and creating a lively party atmosphere for a weekend of unstoppable music.

“The Airlie Beach Hotel is our favourite part of Airlie Beach, of course. What an amazing venue! Bringing the countries best shows to a place that has such a beautiful and warm vibe. Everyone is on Airlie Beach time and is always happy, welcoming, and relaxed,” Penni said.

The show is unforgettable and unstoppable, one of the best dance parties.

“When the band plays, it becomes a dance party, including a drum solo!” Penni said.

“We can't wait to get up there and share our show with the community and The Pub!

“I personally look forward to getting out in the crowd again and having a Fleetwood Mac dance floor like our last show.”

And what is Penni’s favourite track of Fleetwood Mac?

“Edge of 17 and The Chain, simply for their incredible intensity and high emotional content,” Penni said.
