The South West Blues Club band will hit the LiveLighter Bunbury Show for the first time with a range of classic hits to pump up the party atmosphere on Saturday.

Club president Barry Benfell said the crowd could expect “funky, up-tempo popular hits” which would be sure to get everyone on their feet.

“We will be playing for an hour before the fireworks and closing it out afterwards and really drive it home hard,” Mr Benfell said.

“We would be disappointed if it didn’t get the crowd up and dancing.”

He said some of their favourites on the night would include Sympathy for the Devil, Can’t You See and Take Me to the River.

“We are going to play a little bit of everything, so hopefully the crowd is going to get into it,” he said.

“There won’t be just one band, but a raft of musicians playing through the set – so we won’t say too much, people will have to come down and find out for themselves.”

Local talent will fill the show’s Big Top to the brim, with hours of free entertainment lined up throughout the day and night, including dance performances, parkour displays, aerial shows, circus workshops, arts, crafts and face painting.

From 5pm local music will be the main showcase, including a performance by award-winning singer songwriter Codee-Lee.
