Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Shania Twain Tribute Show Comes To The Pub

Get ready for another weekend of fantastic live music, loud and free at The Pub, Airlie Beach Hotel.

With the dynamic and engaging Australian Shania Twain Show you’ll be belting out lyrics like never before.

This incredible tribute band is fronted by lead singer, Ally Friendship, who said she has been performing from the age of 14 with her sister and always knew she wanted a career in music.

She has always loved music and chased that feeling her entire life.

Despite admiring Shania’s songs and being told she looked and sounded like the megastar, at first Ally never thought of performing her songs for a living.

That all changed when in early 2020 she was approached and asked to perform in a one-off Shania Twain tribute show.

With the show’s organiser having no intention of continuing it, Ally and her band took the opportunity and decided to start performing Shania Twain hits regularly.

‘We could see something really good, and thought someone should continue it,’ said Ally.

Their first show was a sell-out, and they have been riding the wave of success ever since.

The Australian Shania Twain Show has been performing for almost 5 years and has recently reinvigorated the show to launch a new era with this powerhouse singer at the helm.

The band are seeing success from their hard work and are now travelling all around Australia.

They have performing at a range of high-profile events including Country On The Green, the Tamworth Country Music Festival and the Great Western Hotel in Rockhampton.

The Airlie Beach Hotel are next on their list and Ally said they are excited about bringing their Australia-wide show to the Whitsundays.

This will be the first time that Ally and her band have been to the region and they are looking forward to soaking up some tropical charm.

Ally in particular said she is excited to meet the Whitsunday locals and create a party atmosphere for all to enjoy.

‘We always like to have a chat after our show and see what the people thought of it!”
