JAZZ quartet Half Nelson will perform an afternoon gig at a community day this Sunday, May 20, to celebrate developments at Wangi RSL Club.

The performance, starting at 3.30pm, will be the first of what the club hopes will become occasional jazz afternoons at the waterfront venue.

A spokesperson for Wangi RSL Club said a playground had recently been installed so that children could have fun on the foreshore as their parents enjoyed the music and food on offer.

The club is also celebrating support it has received from Lake Macquarie City Council and the state government to fund the replacement of the much-used jetty there.

Work on the jetty is scheduled to start later this year, following the completion of the F Jetty rebuild at Rathmines.

The club is also planning to host an outdoor jazz gig on the waterfront in September.

Rock of Ages

TICKETS are now on sale for the Wyong Musical Theatre Company production of Rock of Ages which opens at The Art House, Wyong, next week.

The comedic rock musical takes audiences back to the times of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair.

It’s a Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical featuring the hits of bands such as Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon and Twisted Sister, and singers such as Pat Benatar, among others.

The show opens next Friday night, May 25, at 7.30pm.

The final performance will be on Saturday night, June 2.

Tickets start at $33. Phone 4335 1485 or visit thearthousewyong.com.au.

Dragon concert

Tickets are also on sale for the Dragon gig in the beer garden of Toronto Hotel on September 16.

This one’s expected to be a sell-out.

Dragon are touring the east coast of Australia, this time paying tribute to Countdown and the UK chartbusters of the 1980s.

It means Dragon are performing their take on hits by the likes of Queen, Tears for Fears, The Police, Madness and Duran Duran. Dragon also performs their biggest hits in the two-hour shows.
