Get ready to Rock the Yacht

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

AF­TER all the fo­cus on lo­cal pol­i­tics is over, why not lighten up with some lo­cal mu­sic and fun in the sun at one of the re­gion’s favourite wa­ter­ing holes?

On Satur­day Novem­ber 9, ev­ery­one is in­vited to Rock The Yacht and watch the sun go down while lis­ten­ing to some ta­lented mu­si­cians from around the re­gion at the Port Dou­glas Yacht Club.

Kick­ing off at 3pm and for a cover charge of only $10 per per­son, this is one party you won’t want to miss.

With a line up so far con­sist­ing of Sweet As, Wil­low, Saxy Fin­gers, Good Coun­sel, An­tipody­lans, Tonic and two bands from Cairns – The Mess and No Hype.

PDYC club man­ager Richard Sta­ple­ton said it is sure to be a good day.

‘‘It is a good chance for all the hard work­ing lo­cals to cel­e­brate the end of a long sea­son,’’ he said.

‘‘I think it is a great spot for a cold one.

‘‘A great op­por­tu­nity to sup­port lo­cal tal­ent and there is also some fresh blood from Cairns thrown into the mix.’’

All of the cover charge cash from the event goes di­rectly to the bands.

Pop­u­lar lo­cal act Wil­low said she is re­ally look­ing for­ward to the event.

‘‘I’ve been lucky enough to play at the Yachty be­fore and can’t wait to play there again,’’ she said.

‘‘It’s such a unique venue, pos­si­bly one of the most unique venues you’ll find sim­ply be­cause of the lo­ca­tion and the in­cred­i­ble back­drop of the in­let and the moun­tains in the dis­tance.

‘‘The crowd at the Yachty are also re­ally friendly and the at­mos­phere is one of the last old school rock places left.

‘‘It should be a great day, I’m re­ally ex­cited about this one.

‘‘Get your back­sides down there and sup­port lo­cal mu­sic, have a laugh and a few cold beers at a great venue – it’ll be a cracker!’’

Tick­ets at the door, open from 3pm-11pm.
