Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

These local musicians have not received any income for months and The Rotary Club of Maleny is extremely excited to be hosting this phenomenal event, whilst giving the local community of Maleny a big boost too. All profits will go to the Maleny Community Grants scheme, which provides support to many local organisations.

🎸 So, how will this fabulous Winter Blues Drive-In Concert work?

It's a tad cold up in Maleny on these cold winter nights, so to ensure the musicians are warm and snug and are able to set up their bands, they will perform on the stage in the pavilion. This will then allow for a very limited number of people to be seated at tables indoors. Please note that at the time of writing, all tables and seating at the indoor venue had already sold out! But ... there is still plenty of space on the oval for vehicles.

Oops, looks like someone below missed the dress code memo that it's 'singing the blues' and not 'country and western'.

An incredible experience awaits drive-in lovers - a concert of live music, PLUS a massive screen with visuals. Guests will be able to tune into the live performances, via FM frequency, on their car radios. With the new lifting of restrictions in Queensland, drive-in concert fans are permitted to sit and/or dance outside their own cars, contributing to a real party atmosphere!

🎸 What local musical acts can concert-goers look forward to partying with?

Kevin Borich Express - Kevin Borich certainly needs no introduction, having performed for many years, at many festivals and is regarded as a quintessential stalwart in the Australian and New Zealand music scene.
