PARTICIPANTS in this weekend's Relay For Life will have an added boost with folk duo Busby Marou stopping in to give them a bit of musical motivation.

Tom Busby and Jeremy Marou will make an appearance at Chanel College Oval on Saturday from about 5pm, before heading off to get ready for their performance at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre.

Relay For Life Gladstone marketing co-ordinator Hollie Hall said the band would play a few acoustic songs, chat to relayers and sign shirts to help participants complete the long night ahead.

Originally from Rockhampton, Busby Marou, are no strangers to Gladstone.

"We have played so many shows since then (Gladstone) so it's going to look good and we will rip it up," Tom said.

"We don't care about celebrity status, we just want to keep working hard. Australia is supporting us at the moment, especially the central Queensland region."

The band celebrated on Monday after its self-titled debut album hit gold, selling 35,000 copies. Busby Marou is in Gladstone as part of the My Second Mistakes tour.

People can still register for Relay For Life on the day by paying a $20 joining fee.

The current fundraising total stands at $102,000, with 67 teams registered for the two-day event.
