Pantomime extends the boundaries at Muso night
Muso night takes on a being of its own, feed by the imagination and input of people willing to have a go and have fun amongst friends.
It’s great to see the smiles and excitement as well as the acceptance of all forms of art that is presented every fortnight.

The Last Post
”Lest We Forget”.
Once again the spirit of ANZAC day was embraced within Muso night, with the now time honoured tradition, the tribute in song by Matt Wood, of the Eric Bogle classic " Gallipoli" with Bernie on bugle, and Stuart on lead, for a stunning and heartfelt 900 word faultless rendition.
The crowd fell silent as the last post was played prior to and the "lest we forget” in the traditional way.
The commemoration of those lost so long ago, the unspoken denouncement of the horrors of history, memories of personal and more recent loss, the performance touched us all in a unique and special way, shameless tears embraced and the joy of community and muso night leading into a muso night to be remembered.
