Bang bang fun

This year the Samba-Blisstas (pictured) will be celebrating five years of carnivale-ing their way around the East Coast with more gigs ranging from Brisbanes Valley Fiesta to Yambas Arts Fringe Festival.

And now you have a chance to be part of this local group.

The groups director Paul Barrett will be conducting a six-week course for total beginners and intermediates who wanna have some rhythmical fun.

The Carnival Drumming and Percussion Course starts on Tuesday, February 26, at the Moller Pavilion Hall in the Bangalow Showgrounds at 6pm.

The full cost is $170 with all equipment supplied and no experience necessary. (Just a love of rhythm and a desire to show off!)

Graduates from the course will have an opportunity to join the Samba-Blisstas and go on to perform at this years Lismore Lantern Parade, Bellingen Global Carnival and many other local events.

Bookings are essential. Phone Paul on 6680 4946. (Go to www.carnavaldrumming.com for Samba-Blisstas info.)
