Shania Twain

Who: Pru Clearwater
Where: Club Phoenix
When: Friday April 28, 2000

WHEN she's not wearing a brunette wig and wiggling around on stage pretending to be SHANIA TWAIN, impersonator PRU CLEARWATER can be found pursuing her own country music career. This Friday night at Club Phoenix, Clearwater's SHANIA TWAIN TRIBUTE SHOW will be paying Clearwater's bills as well as a tribute to country's top star. Clearwater's own independent album LOVE CHILD and the single BIG OLD WORLD earned her a nomination for best new talent at this year's GOLDEN GUITAR AWARDS at Tamworth.

ROCK RALLY: THE NEWCASTLE & HUNTER VIETNAM VETERANS ASSOCIATION will hold a fundraiser on Friday night at the Belmont Sportsmans Club for the family of an 18-month-old child COOPER VAN BRAAM who is suffering from a rare form of leukaemia. Cooper's parents, Renae and Lance of Lake Macquarie, need money to assist with the cost of making regular medical trips to Sydney. Cooper is the grandchild of returned serviceman BERNIE CROOKS of Stroud. A band called GLEN HUNT & THE HUNTSMEN will perform at the club, as well as support artist BROOKE LEAL. Another unrelated concert on Saturday night at the same the club will see a performance by JOHNNY GREEN'S BLUES COWBOYS and THE MIGHTY BELVEDERES with DJ DAVE GREVILLE. YOUNG STARS: HEXHAM Bowling Club will be the venue for the MILLENNIUM STAR JUNIOR SHOWCASE and 2NUR-FM FUNDRAISER on Saturday, April 29. Organiser KRISTY BRADY will join an all-singing, all-dancing cast of performers aged under 18, live on stage from 7.30pm. Brady will sing and dance, along with vocalist KATRINA TAYLOR, magician JOEL HOWLETT and singers KHIARA CUMMINGS and EMMA COLLINGWOOD. Tickets are $8 and $4 for children under the age of 12 years.

LUCKY STARR: BORN LES MORRISON in Mascot, Sydney, entertainer LUCKY STARR found his first big break in showbusiness singing in talent quests under the name of Les Star. With his trademark star-shaped guitar Les won so many of the talent quests that he changed his name to Lucky Starr and has never looked back. Performing this week for HEY HEY IT'S FRIDAY at the Cardiff Workers Club, Starr's biggest hit was I'VE BEEN EVERYWHERE. The song stayed in the charts for 22 weeks and sold 45,000 copies in Australia and New Zealand.
