Plans to ‘bring back the music’

By PETER MILLER
An enthusiastic group of Wimmera musicians and music lovers want to re-ignite the live music scene in Horsham by reforming Wimmera Musicians Club with regular weeknight gigs.
Wimmera 50 Years of Rock instigator Lynton Brown is leading the group which will meet for the first time next Wednesday night at Horsham RSL.
Re-formed Horsham band Theme will kick off the evening which starts in the main function room at 8pm.
Mr Brown said Wimmera Musicians Club had a healthy membership in its heyday in the 1980s and 90s and shows were always well attended but interest eventually diminished.
“The idea behind this is to keep the Wimmera music scene alive and showcase our local bands while they network with each other,” Mr Brown said.
“Musicians love to watch and talk to other musicians, no matter what genre they perform,” he said.
“But this isn’t just for musicians. It’s for anyone who loves live music and wants to join in on the fun.”
Mr Brown said if there’s enough interest, the group would meet at the RSL on the first Wednesday of each month.
“We plan to have two bands playing at each evening and bring back some midweek entertainment.”
Admission is free for anyone attending.
Mr Brown said the success of the 50 Years of Rock and Rock the River concerts inspired him to ‘get the ball rolling’ on the evenings.
