Whitsundays annual talent quest set to impress
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.
