Bay Day: programme out now

Ready to go is Magnetic Island's new festival. It starts tomorrow night at Bungalow Bay Koala Village but really hits the big notes on Sunday when Bay Day begins on the foreshore at Horseshoe Bay from 9am. And, after some shuffling and reworking, the programme of performances through the day is now settled.

Already balloons are starting to appear around the Magnetic to add to the festive vibe but tomorrow night Islanders and visitors can get into the swing when the Hot Mambo Salsa Band, who include teachers from the Brisbane Conservatorium will be on hand starting at 6pm at Bungalow Bay (on Horseshoe Bay Rd) when local musicians are invited to join in a free workshop based on the theme of "playing together". The workshop promises to include plenty of music and an audience is very welcome.

But, so you know who will be playing and when, the programme for Sunday is as follows:

Bay Day Programme: Sunday September 30

9:00am: Magnetic Island Musos' Club band led by Phil Honey

10:00am: Derek Fitzgerald Trio

11:00am: Natalie Dajski Quartet

12:00 noon: Bernadette & Phill's Stage Door Cabaret Show

12:30pm: Magnetic Island Musos' Club band with vocalist Sara Shaw

1:30pm: Downtown Dixie Swing Band led by Andrew Dajski

2:30pm: Counterpoint (sextet) led by Bob Passmore

3:30pm: Stokes & Nicholson Big Band - led by John Ruffle

4:30pm: Aquapella Choir with Choir leader Beat Lehmann

5:00: Hot Mambo Salsa Band (live from Brisbane) and Townsville's Dancetime Studos to lead the dancing till 9pm

Mini & Maxi Magnetos roving entertainment through the day!

8.55pm - Buses leave for Arcadia, ferry, Nelly and Picnic

Of course Bay Day will also incorporate the very popular Horseshoe Bay Community Markets which run from 9am till 4pm and include arts, crafts, clothes and local produce, food and refreshments and lots more. The regular Horseshoe Bay shops, cafes and bar will also be open.

Organisers advise that there will also be 500 red shopping bags to swap for plastic bags - so anyone with with plastic bags should bring a handful down for a free Maggie red shopping bag.

Apology: This story was written with an alternate first line which claimed that, "Finally, the Island's has its own Festival". This line was removed shortly after as I realised that this statement grossly overlooked the Great Tropical Jazz Party as an Island Festival and one which Magnetic Times has also promoted.

Magnetic Times unreservedly apologises for any unintended slight against the GTJP by the choice of this unfortunate line which was written in some haste.
