Jive par­ties to rock Moss­man

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

WHAT does a party in Port have in com­mon with jiv­ing in Ju­lat­ten?

Both are fundrais­ers for this year’s Moss­man Rocks mu­sic fes­ti­val.

The in­de­pen­dent mu­sic fes­ti­val is on again on Septem­ber 17 and to raise money for the con­cert which pro­motes a drug and al­co­hol-free night, Ju­lat­ten’s High­lander Tav­ern will hold the first fundrais­ing night.

Jiv­ing Ju­lat­ten kicks off around 6pm on Satur­day night and or­gan­iser Anne Sta­ple­don will be there with other vol­un­teers cook­ing a bar­be­cue and en­joy­ing the night.

“En­try is free and there will be a raf­fle to raise money and a bar­be­cue, where we will sell steak san­gas for five bucks,” Anne said.

“There will be lots of dif­fer­ent bands play­ing, which is one of the beau­ties of the night - one of the bands will be Wu­jal Wu­jal’s Bana ki­way Ki­way, which means the Cold Wa­ter Band.

“They are young lads with a reg­gae feel about them, re­ally tight and re­hearsed, they are great.”

Af­ter en­joy­ing the night out in Ju­lat­ten, next stop is the Port Dou­glas Yacht Club on Satur­day, Septem­ber 3, where more bands will play and an­other raf­fle will be held.

“We get won­der­ful sup­port from lo­cal busi­nesses, we get vouch­ers from lo­cal busi­nesses that peo­ple are in­clined to use, like a voucher for a cup of cof­fee at Temp­ta­tions Café,” Anne said.

And all the money raised will go to­wards mak­ing the third an­nual Moss­man Rocks a free event for the com­mu­nity.

“It gets ev­ery­body to­gether and no­body has to worry about find­ing money to get in and there will be great nu­tri­tious food for sale and a footy match on the oval for the kids,” Anne said.

“Moss­man Rocks is about at­tract­ing com­mu­nity mem­bers of all ages to re­mem­ber how to party with­out al­co­hol.”

To do­nate a raf­fle prize, or for more in­for­ma­tion on how to get in­volved con­tact Anne Sta­ple­don on 0428 171 167.
