Ferris N Friends Show II

12 May 2019 $10 Members $15 Non-members $5 Students with ID
Following up from the first successful Ferris variety show put on for the club on 22 April 2018, the Ferris’s are back to put together another nonstop show of diverse quality music and variety from talented experienced professional gal and guy musos. 
Again there will be performances by several invited guest performers with great harmony singing arrangements and a variety of instruments including guitars, fiddle, drums and percussion and with a few surprises thrown in!
Never predictable,featured music will range from the late 60’s to today and will include a bit of Irish and Country Rock.
There will be something for everyone that will be put together by Rob Ferris and his fully professional son Ryan just before he leaves again to pursue his musical career back in Germany and Europe, and in conjunction with their specially selected guest performers, there will be some solo stints, then combinations of duos, trios and right up to 5 and 6 piece performances on stage for some numbers.
If you attended last years show we are sure you’ll be back and if you happened to miss it, come along and enjoy this feast of sound and talent.
