The Clapton Unplugged Show
Date Fri 31st May 2019
The Clapton Unplugged Show

the man… the music…

celebrating Eric Clapton and his legendary Unplugged Concert
……Layla….Signe …..Before You Accuse Me….Running on Faith…..
……Tears In Heaven…..Wonderful Tonight…I Shot the Sheriff…

Eric Clapton’s career has spanned over six decades. Lauded as being the greatest guitarist of all time, his roots are firmly and obviously embedded in the blues tradition of which he remains both a student and visionary. In his unforgettable ‘Unplugged’ Concert, Clapton paid homage and respect to his roots and those fellow legends that influenced his playing so significantly.
The music was minimalist, alternating between his reworked pop songs such as Layla, the traditional blues of Robert Johnson and Bo Diddley and new songs, including Tears in Heaven, that were an outpouring and expression of a difficult period of his life.

It was honest, real, fun, at times raw and very very special!
The ensuing Album release won three Grammy Awards and sold in excess of 26 million copies worldwide.

‘The Clapton Unplugged Show’ features the inspired vocals and guitar playing of Mark Shelley who, with his long term band, respectfully recreates the magic of that event.

Support Act –
‘The Songs of James Taylor’…the consummate Singer Songwriter.

Davistown Putt Regatta and Wooden Boat Festival
Date Sun 20th Oct 2019
The Davistown Putt Putt Regatta and Wooden Boat Festival is a great event and also an opportunity for the people to celebrate the Central Coast and the culture that is a part of history, heritage and local character.

Many putt-putt boats are still in use on Brisbane Water today. Putt-putt boats usually range in length from 14-18 feet and are powered by either single or twin cylinder two to 10 hp Blaxland/Chapman, Simplex or Clay inboard petrol driven engines all of which make the very familiar putt-putt exhaust sound. Boats today will also often be powered by small one or two cylinder diesel engines.

The Regatta is now one of the principal events on the Gosford City calendar. The Davistown Putt Putt Regatta and Wooden Boat Festival attracts a huge amount of quality putt putts travelling from as far as Queensland and the ACT.

They also look to provide a family focussed day where the local community and visitors can have an enjoyable day in a safe and family friendly environment. The Regatta has the reputation of being the largest event of its kind on the eastern seaboard.
