Weston Club Sings its Praise

Who: The Choirboys
Where: Weston District Workers Club
When: Saturday May 19, 2001

A coalfields club is dipping its toes in the water to see if people of the area are interested in headline bands.

In February, the Weston District Workers Club hosted a capacity crowd to see Aussie rock legend The Radiators. The 650 people who came through the door had 'an awesome night', with many putting the word on club management to deliver more of the same.

The club has delivered, with The Choirboys due to play on Saturday night.

But club secretary manager Derek McVee said the patrons will be voting with their feet.

'The people have asked, so we've put it on for them, but if there is a poor turnout, that will prove they are not interested,' he said.

If the night is a success, the club has booked Mental As Anything but it will only go ahead if there is a good turnout.

'We are not afraid to try things, we are just providing a service, if they like it they'll keep getting it.'

Tickets for the night are a steal at $6 presale or $12 at the door on the night, with $2.50 schooners as usual.

The Choirboys have been touring and recording for close to 20 years.

In that time they've performed at over a thousand venues and to hundreds and thousands of Australians.

With only two original members remaining, vocalist Mark Gable and bass player Ian Hulme, they're still rocking on.

They are sure to belt out hits such as Run To Paradise and Boys Will Be Boys.
