Chance for budding musos to play live

BLOSSOMING musos - young and old - in the Gladstone region, it's your time to shine.

The Agnes Water Surf Life Saving Club (Beach Break Bar) is holding an acoustic session on Sunday, from noon to 3pm.

Organised by "Mad Hat" Maurie Nicholson, the event is all about having a go.

"I gather it's good for the people who can't book gigs to come and play a song and have a go," Mr Nicholson said.

"It doesn't matter if you stuff up, it's just a good day out.

"The aim is to provide a friendly and positive space for musicians to play for a live audience."

It will be an open-mic style event, with any type of instruments welcome.

Bob Gammage will also be doing an artscape piece where the public can add a brushstroke, and the Discovery Coast Markets will be on at the SES grounds.

A happy-hour lunch deal is on offer from 11.30am.
