Three artists will be on hand while you dunk your biscuits in tea.

WE HAVE ALWAYS LOVED DEAN – When he was Pritchy Ray, when he was the kid with the hot guitar skills, when he played guitar walking up and down our bar because too many people were talking and not dancing, and when he was just the muso from Chincilla. He has been a Roma Races Favourite.
NOW THAT HE HAS THE X FACTOR , THE BOY FROM THE BUSH WILL RETURN TO HIS ROOTS ON NOVEMBER 22. THANKS DEAN, THE BEER’S ON US SATURDAY NIGHT
