Our group plays many different types of music that include about a century of favourites. These cover popular wartime songs, variety tunes, rock, pop, blues, folk and contemporary songs of the mid to late 20th Century. Our eclectic range of music is easy to play and great to sing along to.
We also have special theme evenings such as 60s, Elvis, Beatles, Celtic nights, Rock ‘n Roll, Footy Songs, Christmas songs, Halloween, the Blues, Country and Western, Rock Legends and many more.
We have a wide repertoire with access to a library of more than a thousand songs. Our club has developed three main songbooks and a variety of themed books.
