Sunset Energy With ADF 1RAR Band

The Australian Army’s 1RAR Band is heading to Bowen, as part of their Southern Community Engagement Tour, for a special one-night concert.

The 1st Battalion Royal Australian Regime, the 1RAR Band has been instrumental in encouraging community engagement with the Australian Army, through the positive and uplifting tunes of their music.

“We’re a 22-piece full time band, performing for the community with modern and atmospheric beats,” explained Band Sergeant Major, James Duquemin.

Based in Townsville, this Southern Tour has the band travelling as far south as Mackay, Yeppoon, and Clermont, with the Sunset Vibes concert.

“Sunset Vibes is an electrifying evening that blends modern beats with Aussie classics, courtesy of the sensational 1RAR Band,” James explained.

“This isn't your average concert – it's a music experience that transcends generations. Whether you're belting out the lyrics to your favourite tracks or dancing the evening away with friends, the 1RAR Band's talent will have you hooked from the first note.

“Bring your crew, set up the perfect picnic, and let the good times roll on at The Bowen Sound Shell.

This is your chance to immerse yourself in the quintessential beachside atmosphere while enjoying top-notch live music that's as cool as the ocean breeze.”

Manager of Bowen Tourism and Business, Leanne Abernethy said it was very exciting to have the 1RAR band coming to Bowen.

“This will be a great family event for locals and visitors, and everyone is looking forward to it.”
