The Wolvi Stomp was held in the delightful little country township just outside of Gympie last Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the sell out event was a hit among the community.

With an astounding 21 acts over the three days, 180 tickets were purchased, making for a great weekend of live entertainment.

Organised by the Wolvi Hall Committee, Darryl Wright said the group have always had a love of live music, and with some extra help for the Wolvi Men’s Shed, the concert was able to have a successful fourth year of operation.

“There was a 180-weekend ticket limit plus musicians and volunteers in attendance.

“Lots of positive feedback has been received by the committee about the relaxed and friendly atmosphere and wonderful music over the three days. Credit to Gary and the volunteers for organising such a well-run and memorable event.

“The event has a blues base with some other genres- rock, folk, pop, and roots music.“

The Stomp is an annual fundraiser for the Wolvi Hall, with all profits going towards maintenance, improvements and new equipment for the community hall.

Did you know? Open Mic nights are held at the Wolvi Hall the first Friday of the month- The next one is on Friday 5 November. Great local music to be part of and to enjoy. The committee invites you to join in on the fun.
