The sun shone and little rockers from Eumundi School of Rock shared the stage with an impressive line-up of seasoned performers at SUNSHINE SOUNDS FESTIVAL on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 July.
Festival producer Katie Noonan was thrilled with the great sense of community and genuine talent that took to the stage over the two-day event, the second such festival.
“There were so many musical highlights, but there were huge goosebumps watching our young Eumundi School of Rock musicians seize the opportunity to jam with Tim Rogers,” says Katie. “Tim brought his musical best and also his mentoring best – full of terrific rock n’ roll and life advice for our next generation of musos.”
“The kids absolutely shone on stage, and I think everyone fortunate enough to be there was blown away by their talent and excitement,” she said.
“It’s a special little boutique community festival – and a festival with real heart.”
