Andrew Cox and his band will be strumming, drummin

Andrew Cox and his band will be strumming, drumming and humming at the Brunswick Heads Hotel this Friday, January 6, from 7pm.

The experience of living in Nigeria, England, Lebanon, Zambia, Jamaica and America has impacted Andrews view of the world (as if it wouldnt). This impact is reflected is in his music. He recently performed at the Dolphin Awards night in Byron and has released an album Demonstrate It and thats just what hell be doing this Friday.

The lads from The Re-Mains are preparing to ride into country heaven (Tamworth) later this month. But you can catch them earlier...

About to plunge into the blazing hinterland on their annual pilgrimage to the Tamworth Country Music Festival, The Re-Mains will be plying their brand of country rock and roll at the Lennox Point Hotel this Saturday, January 7, for those of us who wont be visiting the festival of cowboy hats over the Australia Day week. Boasting another four star review in the Weekend Australian for their recent album Field Conditions, 2005 was a big year for the NSW banjo-pluckers, with 100 shows played all over the country and a lot of kilometres clocked up on their Hiace van. 2006 looks even bigger.

Weve plugged into a bunch of rootsy festivals across the continent and look to be hauling our sorry arses all over it this year, said frontman Mick Daley. He loves it. And so do the growing number of fans that dig the dusty country rock of The Re-Mains.

Shane St James is a master of the power of suggestion, and he will be beguiling (listen to my voice he will be beguiling) the Ballina RSL Club audience this Sunday, January 8.

Members of the audience behave in a totally uninhibited and outrageous manner. So if you like to laugh at people who think they are hens laying square eggs, this is for you.

When Shane suggests, people comply.

Show starts at 8pm. Tickets are $16/12 and available on 6686 2544.

Aussie comedian Col Elliott will be firing off the laugh bullets at the Ballina RSL Club next Thursday, January 12.

Col is a born story-teller his expressions and acting ability are geared to his audience. Col is at home on the stage, whether it be in the role of one of his alter egos such as Chooka the roadie or just being himself doing stand-up, political satire or picking up his guitar to sing one of his outrageous ditties.

Tickets are $25 and available on 6686 2544.
