Howzat Braithwaite ready for bayside
MUSIC icon Daryl Braithwaite has performed for more than four decades and still finds the stage ‘invigorating’.
The former Sherbet frontman and accomplished soloist is best known for his 1991 chart topping hit The
Horses and said he relished the opportunity to sing.
“Hopefully performing makes other people and ourselves happy. If we are happy on stage it translates to the audience,”
“That’s the beauty of what we do, we are dealing in emotions.”
The music legend will entertain the crowds at Day on the Bay at Brighton’s Decker Park on October 7.
“My band and I are excited to play at Day on the Bay and hopefully Queensland lives up to its good weather. I think people will really enjoy the event,” Braithwaite said.
“Whether it is playing for 25 people or 15000, all gigs have their own rewards and it is good to share music with people.”
Braithwaite and his musicians are busy touring at the moment with gigs booked across Australia until April 2018.
“We will also be performing at Falls Festival which will be huge and exciting to say the least,” he said.
“Hopefully we can also get overseas and play at a handful of European summer gigs.”
Braithwaite will rock the stage alongside acts Joe Camilleri (Black Sorrows), Wendy Matthews (Eurogliders), Mark Gable (Choirboys frontman) and Sarah De Bono (from The Voice).
The music festival, organised by Sandgate and Districts Chamber of Commerce, is complete with gourmet food trucks and a licensed venue also on site.
Organisers expect crowds of up to 4000 people to attend the event.
