Local Legends Take On Passport To Airlie

Coming off the back of winning the Mackay regional finals for the 2023 iteration of Passport To Airlie, The Wild Sky are riding the wave of excitement.

Known for their sophisticated jazz with hints of hip-hop, metal and rock, The Wild Sky brings a unique musical experience, with at least one track to satisfy every listener around.

We’ve got Ron Croker on vocals and guitar, with his signature smooth guitar moves and gravelly voice.

He is joined with Evan Daly, on drums, who brings some of the best backing beats around, keeping the rhythm smooth and tempered.

The third man of this trio is Michael Peters, with his bass hitting just right and sure to keep the boys keen and easy.

With eclectic beats and excellent tracks, this band is excited to get on the main stage and bring their best for the grand finals of Passport to Airlie next Thursday.

“We’re very excited to be headed to play at Airlie Beach Festival of Music and so grateful to Passport To Airlie for giving us this opportunity,” said Ronny.

“We’re really looking forward to seeing our fans there watching us on the big stage Thursday night and over the weekend. Their support means a lot to us.”

Cherrie Hughes is the National Coordinator for Passport To Airlie and is excited for the grand final showcase.

“We’re really excited about the level of talent at the Thursday night Showcase in Airlie,” she said.

“It’s great that we can bring this all-ages gig with this huge diversity of artists from around the country to really celebrate the future of live and original music in Australia.

“It’s going to be a great night in itself even if music fans can’t make the main festival.”
