Artists were singing in the rain

IT IS an annual Dalby event which brings together residents from Dalby to engage with musicians young and old for an afternoon of entertainment.

The Pre-Sale concert held at O'Shea's Bi-Right was held in trying conditions on Saturday, October 14.

Grey skies threatened the event, however the rain stayed clear for long enough to get through most of the performances.

Richard O'Shea said the day was a success, and it was great to witness musicians of all experiences perform for the 150 people strong crowd.

"We had over a dozen acts with varying levels of experience from absolute first timers on stage in front of people to those who have been performing their whole lives,” Mr O'Shea said.

"It was really enjoyable to watch these two differences combine on stage.

"It was great to see some of the talent there is in Dalby.”

Unfortunately the day was cut short before the final act could be played, as the rain which had threatened all day final came down along with blustery winds.

Mr O'Shea said the act which missed out, Dalby band The Ship of Fools, were an integral part of the day.

"I wish to thank the band members because while they did not get to perform, they were with us from the start of the day doing sound checks in the rain,” he said.

"They were wonderful and it was a shame we could not get through all of the acts.”

Despite missing out on the final performance, Mr O'Shea said the day was well received by those who attended.

"The day was enjoyed by all who came,” he said.

The annual event coincides with the annual stock clearance at the store.
