Dan's Blues Explosion

Well known Cairns drummer Dan Solowiej of Johnnos Blues bar fame has put a rockin blues band together that will rattle the walls of the old hall!! Drums, piano and guitar and who knows what other instruments or musicians, plus the gravelly blues that only Dan can deliver. This is going to be some night!

The Barron Brothers

Local lads Dan, John and Matt will start off the night with some old favourites just to get your toes a tappin and the room a shakin'. These guys know how to get the party started, so make sure you get in early for a decent dose of NYE fun as only can happen at Machans Beach.
