Rock ‘N Roll To Christmas

Get ready for the Christmas party of the year, with the Tiny Homes Project.

Rock and rolling our way to Christmas will be musician Peter Tilbrook, vocalist and guitarist of Aussie, The Master’s Apprentices.

“One of Australia’s top 60’s bands was Master’s Apprentices and original band vocalist Peter Tilbrook still performs today as great as ever,” Sandy Clark, Fundraising Coordinator for Tiny Homes Project said.

“Peter will perform hits from his original band along with popular hit music from a variety of other rock bands through the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. He has been a busy performer all over Australia as well as many cruise ship gigs. He works with a group called The Party Cats and he’s guaranteed to get the Sailing Club up and dancing.”

Also, on the schedule for this Christmas Luncheon will be the tantalizing auction items, including a dinner voucher to Airlie Beach’s newest restaurant Eastwoods, a Penfold’s wine package, and artwork donated by Bridgette Peel Fine Art.

Bridgette also runs art classes at her studio 3 Little Birds, and one of her staff Noemi Martinez has donated her portrait of Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac.

Tickets are $110 per person, and include a traditional Christmas turkey roast, with all the best trimmings, Christmas pudding for dessert and a cocktail on arrival.
