Gene Vincent Tribute Show

Prior to his Show at the Hervey Bay Boat Club Eddie Daniels rang the FraserCoast FM radio studios and I had the privilege of interviewing him all pre arranged (so I could press the 6 second profanity button !just in case) The interview was a hoot and I mistakenly called his show the Gene Vincent Show when of course it was the Gene PITNEY tribute show (Eddie as kindly made a promo for my show mentioning the hilarious incident! Eddie also provided me with some mp3 music that enabled me to play his music giving potential customers a pre look at his style.Eddie also presented my show on his & the Boat Clubs behalf with a fantastic give away prize ( I was almost tempted to resign on the spot so I could enter the draw) consisting of TWO tickets to his show,TWO Club Bistro Meals and TWO of his wonderful CDs,the phone in response was fantastic!

Eddie came on stage and before his show asked me to stand up and be recognized and did a great introduction to the FraserCoast FM 107.5 station in front of an estimated audience of 200 !! of course that sort of intro can only do good for the station.The first hour plus was dedicated to Gene Pitneys Songs and uncannily sounded just like GP ! The second half was full of songs from the 60s and certainly kept the crowd baying for more.Dancers were encouraged to use the smallish dance floor front stage while other patrons danced around their tables !! Accompanying Eddie was Suzie Lee and she is a ‘live wire’ on stage !! so much energy and the audience took to her immensely.All in all it was a great nights entertainment and looking forward to their next show in Hervey Bay (and hopefully a giggling interview ) Thanks Eddie for kindness shown and of course Suzie (maybe a word or 2 from her next time on the radio?) The winner of the ‘give away’ is pictured with me n Eddie ( of course I’m the good looking one)
