Deni Chapple and friends

Deni, being a lover of kids, was a teacher for many years but family and her dedication to music got in the way so these days she'd prefer to follow her natural love which is music where she is both performing as a singer guitarist and “spinning the discs” with Deni’s Mix on Wild Horse FM. Her friends or accompanists are many and varied, but on this outing will include at some point Doug Pullen - bass, Mike Duggan - percussion and Denis Green - harmonica, and might just include special guest Roger Beare on sax. To hear her sing here is a video featuring her in a duo in which she also performs as

The Claptomaniacs


Who are they? The Claptomaniacs formed in 2014 in the Noosa shire with a common love for music of their own times. They are all locals, experienced musicians with thousands of hours of professional performances under their belts respectively.
Are they just another cover band? No, they select quality dance and ballad material, initially from Eric Clapton's huge repertoire, then from a limited range of bands. They don't attempt to act as a multi-person karaoke machine.
Are they a tribute band? No, while they do love to give tribute to the artists they cover. No impersonations, fancy dress costumes, wigs or face paint, just good music.
Who do they cover? The repertoire includes material originally performed by Eric Clapton/Cream, Joe Cocker, Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers, Rolling Stones, Boz Scaggs, Atlanta Rhythm Section and more.
Lead singer Ken Gamble is widely commended for his renditions of Joe Cocker's vocal and performance style.

Evan has been playing and singing since he and his wife Lyn helped run the Moreton Bay Folk Festival in 1969 – the first folk festival in Queensland. In those days, when Frank Nicklin and Joh BP ran the police special branch, it was “Dangerous” to sing folk music or protest…
After having sung at more folk clubs and festivals than most people care to remember, Evan still loves to entertain audiences with songs of good humour, social and political comment, accompanied with guitar and self built Autoharp. Music makes the world a better place, so Evan wishes the inaugural Eudlo Music Nights every success

The Good Doctor (Michael Whiticker)

MW in white multiple 15 copy
People sometimes wonder what musicians do for a “day gig”. Well the "doc" in the name won’t help there, as although he is a doctor, it is of music, so Michael’s day is taken up by a full time commitment to his art with his recording studio, PA work, composing and mentoring. If you are interested to check out some of Michael's websites try to get a taste of his passion for recording and music production, and then is an open-mic organisation he runs in the Glasshouse Mountains area where lovers of performance have the opportunity to get up and do their thing on a regular basis. And if you are short of a night's entertainment his personal website is a "good" read… Or that at least is what his mother said… But if you are wondering what he is going to play for this show then it is a bit bluesy and a bit swampy and includes an original or two and even a bit of an instrumental might find it’s way onto the stage!
