Five Live:

Who: Five
Where: Newcastle Entertainment Centre
When: Thursday May 4, 2000

TOMORROW night at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre the five lads from FIVE, who go by the names of J, ABS, RICH, SCOTT and SEAN, will finally give Newcastle audiences what they've been screaming for - a good solid dose of funk and pop. Their hit songs WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT, EVERYBODY GET UP and IF YA GETTING DOWN put Five in the Australian Top 100 for 51 weeks. The group has sold more than 210,000 copies of their debut in Australia alone.

FLUTE TRIO: HUNTER WATER and THE WETLANDS CENTRE will present MUSIC AT THE WETLANDS again this Sunday, from midday until 2pm, featuring the D'AMORE FLUTE TRIO. The Newcastle-based trio of BRETT DONOVAN, ANNE RZECHOWICZ and GRANT DRURY, arranges classical music to suit. It was named the State's 'best classical ensemble' at the BRIDAL INDUSTRY AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE. The centre's CAFE LACANA will be open for visitors to enjoy a light lunch or snack. Proceeds of the day help keep the visitors centre doors open.

BUSH POETRY: 1233 ABC NEWCASTLE presenter JOHN CLARKE will broadcast live from TOCAL FIELD DAY this Friday, between 1pm and 3pm. As part of the programming the ABC/TOCAL FIELD DAY BUSH YARN COMPETITION finalists will present their winning stories and poems live to air. Someone will walk away with $200, but bush poetry will be the winner of the day.

GROOVY JAZZ: AS well as original tunes THE CHRIS REYNOLDS QUARTET performs its own versions of well-known compositions by MILES DAVIS, CHARLIE PARKER, WAYNE SHORTER, CHICK COREA, JOHN SCHOFIELD and STEELY DAN. Playing tomorrow night at The Dungeon all-ages venue, beneath Adamstown Uniting Church, the line-up is guitarist Reynolds with COL STEIN on keyboards, PETER GRAY on bass and NICK CICERE on drums. TE
