SOS call goes out to music fans

THE guitars have been tuned and the vocal exercises completed, now organisers of this Friday's SOS-Fest are just waiting on the crowd to come streaming into the Civic Centre.

It is the first of what is hoped to many SOS-Fests, a concept joint organiser Chris Giacca said was aimed at everyone.

"There's been a fair amount of support and we're looking like we'll get a decent crowd," Mr Giacca said.

"Quite frankly there will be a lot of young people but there will be a lot of people in the late 20s to 30s," he said.

"But I don't want anyone thinking they're too old to come, it's definitely for everyone."

Stanthorpe businesses have got behind the idea too, donating a mountain of great prizes.

Mr Giacca said he hoped $5 entry and the chance to win some great items - combined with some great music - would be motivation for people to show their support.

"Thanks for the community for being so good about it and helping us out," he said.

"Thanks for the businesses for donating their stock."

Five bands will be on show from 4.40 to 10pm at the Civic Centre.
