Moreton musician to headline Dancing in the Cool
MUSICIAN and former Woodford boy Toby Tyler (Peter McSweeney) is ready to headline ‘Dancing in the Cool’ at the Woodford Memorial Hall on June 4.
Toby Tyler and the Country Boys band will take centre stage at the community event organised by the Woodford Lions Club Inc, with generous support from the Moreton Bay Regional Council.
Woodford Lions Club Inc spokesperson Barry Siebuhr said the theme ‘Dancing in the Cool’ came about when a decision was taken that a long-awaited air-conditioning system being installed at the Woodford Memorial Hall was worthy of community celebration.
Barry said the Woodford Lions Club Inc was keen to have a fun community event after all of the Covid interruptions.
“A lot of our community events have been stymied by Covid, including the Christmas Street Carnival,” Barry said.
“When Covid started to lift, we wondered what sort of event we could put on for the community.”
Toby Tyler regularly plays at south-east Queensland venues including pubs and clubs as a solo artist and with his backing band The Country Boys.
The band play music the way it should be! They will have you on your feet from the first to the last song every time with fantastic music.
Over a long period, Toby has expressed a keen interest in performing in Woodford and to assist the Lions with fundraising.
“He’s a Woodford boy. He left here when he was about 10,” Barry said.
“He’s very much looking forward to coming back to Woodford to perform, and to catch up with his family, friends and fans.”
Attendees can expect a range of songs from over the decades, including 60s rock ‘n’ roll and country rock for dancing rock ‘n’ roll, partner, line and also tunes for old time dancing.
Funds raised on the night will support community groups, individuals and activities in local schools together with Lions Australia activities.
‘Dancing in the Cool’ will run from 7pm to 11pm, with attendee registration and kind donations on entrance.
Barry said the Woodford Lions Club Inc was also ready to start organising the 2022 Christmas Street Carnival, with a planned date of November 25.
