Shoal Bay Country Club events caters for all music tastes

Shoal Bay Country Club are gearing up to host a range of gigs to suit almost every taste through to the end of June.

American-born, Byron Bay-based soul sensation Lisa Hunt will stop her popular Forever Soul tour - a retrospective of motown, soul, funk and disco - in Shoal Bay on Friday, June 14.

Tickets cost $28.

The following weekend, on Saturday, June 22, iconic Aussie pub rock band The Choirboys will perform at the club.

Choirboys bassist Ian Hulme said the band loved playing live, four decades after forming.

"There's absolutely no pressure to be or do anything other than just who we are," Hulme said.

"With all the original members still around and playing together, it's just an absolute rockin' pleasure."

The Choirboys are one of Australia's authentic pub rock icons, having released a swag of enduring pub rock anthems including Run To Paradise, Boys Will Be Boys and Never Gonna Die.

Now the band have curated a special show that partially embarks on the band's indulgence of Creedence Clearwater Revival.

The band have hand selected six CCR classic hits, all performed in The Choirboys' own inimitable style. But if CCR isn't your thing, no fear, Choirboys are performing all their hits and fan favourites with 70 per cent of the set Choirboys anthems.

Tickets to the gig cost $30.

Solo electronic artist and producer Elk Road, whose real name is Rory Garton Smith, will round out the month with a free gig on Friday, June 28.

Elk Road tours to Shoal Bay off the back of recent singles Ghost and Solid Gold featuring Julia Stone (of Angus and Julia Stone), which are both the highest played electronic tracks on national radio station triple j to date.

Buy tickets to Lisa Hunt and The Choirboys shows through Shoal bay Country Club's Facebook page.

The Examiner has one double pass (containing two tickets) to give away to The Choirboys gig.
