Bayside and Northern Suburbs Star - - NEWS | WELCOME - Lahni Jones

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,”

Braith­waite said.

“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.
