Multi-Golden Guitar winner Brendon Walmsley draws audiences into the world of his songs—perceptive stories about the joys and struggles of life, the importance of love and family, and the strength that comes through faith. On stage, he's a dynamic and compelling entertainer with a wonderful voice and the ability to take his songs to a whole new level.
Brendon’s debut single was the most played Australian country song of 1999 and in 2000 saw him collect the Golden Guitar for New Talent of the Year after nominations in an incredible 5 categories. Brendon's second album saw the release of several successful singles, including "Never Never" and "Adam" which both reached number 1 on the charts, as well as "Stay Where You Are" and the classic Rick Springfield hit "Speak To The Sky", which both reached the top 5.
Toowoomba-based Brendon joined forces with director and writer John Senczuk to create an original Australian 'country musical' set in Toowoomba Region, featuring his most popular hits (Rose and Rodeo, Bed of Roses, Last of the Big Gun Drovers, Still Falling and Stay Where You Are). Rose and Rodeo is a contemporary love story about resilience and the country spirit of determination.

Airy, earthy vocals and feel driven guitar - this artist's music is a cup of tea for the soul, with a shot of whiskey. Growing up on an alpaca farm in country Queensland gave Dana Hassall the perfect level of isolation to lock herself away and create. You can expect to hear a lot of life lessons, observations and the occasional love-gone-wrong story amongst her self-penned tunes.
Topp Gear’s music could best be described as easy listening with a combination of 50’s/60’s, country, country rock and ballads. Bring your dancing shoes and be ready for a good time.
Take a step back to a simpler time with local barbershop quartet, Good Fortunes. Barbershop music is characterised as being four-part a capella harmony, in other words, four men singing with no other musical accompaniment.
The four singers of Good Fortunes are long-time members of successful Toowoomba men’s chorus, High Altitude Harmony, and have a diverse repertoire from the Blues to the Beatles, and simply love to sing in that good old barbershop style.
