Who: Coombo Combo
Where: Adamstown Rosebuds Sport & Rec Club (Knights Leagues Club)
When: Friday March 5, 1999

LEAD vocalist JUDY COOMBES of COOMBO COMBO lists her band duties as 'vocals, sarcasm and percussion', because quite often sarcasm is what it takes to get the audience involved.

Playing this Saturday night at Club Phoenix, COOMBO COMBO is a trio that gets people up and dancing.

Band members RON COOMBES and RAY O'GRADY agree Judy's wit ensures there's never a stranger in the room after a night out listening to the trio.

Performing a range of Top 40 hits and popular classics, the group distinguishes itself from other variety acts by its ability to involve the audience.

Coombes' good-natured ribbing of her audience members is received with grace and good humour.

Covers include material by THE BEACH BOYS, ELVIS PRESLEY, VAN MORRISON, ROY ORBISON, MENTAL AS ANYTHING and SHANIA TWAIN.

COOMBO COMBO will perform next Friday, March 5, at the opening of the Knights Leagues Club, in the former Adamstown Rosebuds Sport and Recreation Club. TE
