Whangarei Special Olympics Fundraising Concert

Featuring Dennis Marsh & Brendan Dugan

Hi folks

An awesome day was had on Sunday the 15th November at the Whangarei Special Olympics fundraiser concert held at the Kamo club. A full house was treated to a fantastic day of entertainment by two legends of New Zealand country music Dennis Marsh and Brendan Dugan bringing their mix of classic country music to enthral the crowd. They have a slick and well polished show having now spent many years working together on the road all around New Zealand. They were ably supported by Annette and Kim with “The Dixie Chickens” even making an appearance to amuse the crowd with their version of ”Tennessee Bird Walk”. Check out the videos on Facebook folks.

Thanks to the Kamo club management and staff, Doug the Digger Roadshow and Magic Music (Yvonne Lilly) for all their help in supporting the Special Olympics Team. Thank you Susan Marsh, (no no relation to Dennis), for distributing flyers for the concert. We know we can always depend on you. Thank you to Dennis and Brendan for sharing their amazing talents and stories with us. Thank you JD for assisting Dennis and Brendan with setting up and breaking down the gear. Much appreciated.

The amazing amount of $4200 was raised to assist the Special Olympics team. Which is absolutely awesome. Thanks to everyone that attended. Your continued support is very much appreciated. If it wasn’t for you making an audience for us to perform to there wouldn’t be much point to it all. So thank you, thank you, thank you.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year. Until then remember to take care and to keep it country.
Have a Very Merry Christmas everyone and a safe and happy New Year.

Best wishes

Annette and Kim

P.S. Our last two gigs for the year will the Kamo Club Dance Section Christmas Break Up on Wednesday 2nd December and the Whangarei RSA on Friday the 11th December. These will be two great nights not to be missed. See you all there.
