Whit­sun­days an­nual tal­ent quest set to im­press

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE hottest tal­ent from across the Whit­sun­days will be con­verg­ing on the stage for heat one of Air­lie’s Got Tal­ent at Banjo’s Bar and Bistro this Satur­day night.

Banjo’s Bar and Bistro man­ager El­lie Gould­ing said last year’s event had peo­ple pushed up against the fence try­ing to catch a glimpse of the lat­est lo­cal tal­ent.

“We have had a fan­tas­tic re­sponse from the com­mu­nity with peo­ple from all walks of life com­ing through the doors and post­ing en­tries from kids, fam­i­lies and older peo­ple,” she said.

“There have been a lot of singers, guitarists, dancers and a com­edy act reg­is­ter but the com­pe­ti­tion is still open to any­one.”

The three-week com­pe­ti­tion kicks off with heat one this Satur­day, and is open to any mu­si­cal act, dance rou­tine, magic show, com­edy act, pup­pet show, or quirky tal­ent of any kind.

There will be cash prizes up for grabs in­clud­ing $500 for first place, S250 for sec­ond and $150 for third place.

Air­lie’s Got Tal­ent is free to en­ter and con­tes­tants can reg­is­ter in per­son at Banjo’s Bar and Bistro.

Last year’s event saw gifted karaoke singer Ian Hawke take out first place with gui­tarist Sean O’Neill in sec­ond and Star Foale plac­ing third with a beau­ti­ful vi­o­lin and man­dolin per­for­mance.

Ms Gould­ing said the tal­ent quest was go­ing to be a fun day for the whole fam­ily and ev­ery­one game enough to get one stage was a win- ner.
