Join us at the main stage d'Arcy Doyle Place when international sensation Matthew Hetherington takes over the stage - you will not be able to hold back your moves. Matt is being tipped as the next big thing to come out of Australia.
His extraordinary voice and vitality on stage has earned him exceptional reviews both from his live band appearances and his numerous award winning theatrical performances. Matt has won three Green Room Awards and the prestigious Helpmann Award as Lead Actor in a Musical in productions such as The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Next To Normal and North By Northwest. He has become one of Australia's most sought after live acts, both as a feature solo artist and fronting the Matt Hetherington Band. Wander up to the Top of Town as Heritage Bank presents Honk! with more sensational entertainment with our very own Ipswich City Big Band performing a smooth party set with tunes from a range of genres including Swing, Latin, Pop and Funk.
For something completely different we welcome the sensational Blue Skillet Rovers Jug Band. We dare you to kick up your heels and have some fun as this energetic band presents some good old fashioned foot stompin', thigh slappin', hilarious antics that will have you spellbound. There will be something for everyone - so let's party!
