Perth band returns for an encore
The Waroona Show will welcome back Ten Grand Tourist for 2018, the band’s second appearance at the event.
The six-member rock and pop band from Perth said they loved playing at the 2017 show and were genuinely honoured to be asked back.
“We were booked for this year the day after the 2017 show so they must have been pleased,” band member Mick Lines said.
“We’ve been to the show most years as show-goers, but to be asked to be a part of it was an honour.
“It’s a great show with a beautiful stage and the organisers always make us sound great, we can just plug in and play.”
The group plays a range of rock and pop covers from the 70s right the way through to the present, but according to Mr Lines, they try to avoid songs that every second cover band plays.
“Country shows like Waroona are the real Australia, they’re the real deal and leave you with the proper Aussie feeling,” he said.
Mr Lines also said the best part of performing in Waroona was the way the audience and crowd interacted with the band while on stage.
Break dancing children, grooving families and singalongs are all notable past happenings.
“This year we have our own kid-sized branded shirts and show bags because we love getting people involved,” Mr Lines aid.
“It is unreal to be a part of this show and would love to keep coming back.”
Ten Grand Tourist will be on stage between 5.30pm and 8.30pm at the this Saturday.
This year's headline band Ten Grand Tourist will play on the main stage from 5.30pm.
