THEY'VE played at most of the Hunter's pubs and clubs, but this Friday night RED SWEAT will play for the first time at Adamstown RSL Club.

BUSH BANDS: HEAD down to the Phoenix Club this Sunday, November 5, and fossick through Australian facts and folklore with CLEAN PHIL & THE BUSHROCKS. The 'Bushrocks' are an Australian folk band who entertain with 'Aussie songs and singalongs', complimented by bush dancing, didgeridoo demonstrations and costumed characters. Phoenix has bush bands planned for every Sunday in November.

CUP DAY: IRISH funny lady GERALDINE DOYLE will entertain members and their guests on Melbourne Cup Day at the Phoenix club. Doyle, who was born in Ireland, has won five variety entertainment MO AWARDS. With a combination of social observation, hilarious anecdotes and acoustic songs, Doyle has endeared herself to the Australian public through performances and appearances on the MIKE WALSH SHOW, MIDDAY WITH RAY MARTIN and the MIDDAY WITH KERRI-ANNE KENNERLY. VAN MAN: HE captured notoriety, as well as attention, when he busked in the rain on the roof of his Holden panel van at the TAMWORTH COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL in 1993, but COL FINLEY is no fool. Seven years after the fact, Finley's stunt is paying dividends. Performing on Friday, November 3, at the Cardiff Workers Club, Finley has been invited to support the likes of TROY CASSAR-DALEY, LEE KERNAGHAN and has performed at premier country music festivals such as the TOYOTA GYMPIE COUNTRY MUSTER and the EMERALD COUNTRY MUSIC SPECTACULAR. In the United States he won the UAR INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITING COMPETITION for his ode to fatherhood, GIFT WRAPPED IN A CHILD.
