“Ok guys and gals and sheep a change of venue a change of time and a change of day. All worked in favor for the crew, The lively Saturday evening idea at the Criterion worked a treat. An event listing on Facebook plus of course Dear Old Reverbnation.com all worked well to promote the evening. Dave ran the show provided the PA and a lot of the equipment and Musos form far and wide came to play like Mice to the Piper's Flute. Ok not quite but when they were called at least 12 responded and one almighty nightly jam ensued. The music flowed almost non-stop from 7pm to midnight many different styles and flavours. Look like the Bar has been set quite high to beat this one guys. But they'll do it all again maybe at the end of April I reckon they said. Many of the hardened front bar patrons though preferred that area to the Dining Room and it was hard for the sound to carry out to the Front Bar so I have heard that there maybe a change to a closer area for the next show. Ok Rock On guys.”
"A Lively Saturday Night at the Cri"
“Quorn Eagerly awaits the return of the Lazy Sunday Arvo or do they ??? We will have to see what happens in March if the guys and girls kick off again. There is a rumour that the show may be moving to the Criterion on a Saturday Night instead but these shows are still in the negotiation stage. We'll keep you all posted as soon as we find out what's gonna happen you'll all find out.”

“Well Well Well, three holes in the ground... maybe not??.... They may have had the last Lazy Sunday Arvo for 2011 in the Austral Inn Hotel Quorn SA but it will definitely not be the last ever. The artists are having so much fun legally that it can't stop. From Acoustic versions of well known favourites to electric jams and even Ukelele versions of "Long Train Running" and Don't Worry Be Happy". Well each show has been dynamically different and very entertaining. The formula is getting worked out and they ended the night with "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" and Nad's Favourite "Friends in Low Places" ably sung by Kenny the Legend backed up by Craig the Ranger. Rock on Guys and Girls.”
Lazy Sunday Arvo No.7 Austral Inn Hotel.
“Ok this is a review of the last Lazy Sunday Arvo ( No.6). It was pretty good. The Caroona Road Band, Andy Killcross, Brenna G, Craig R and the backing band and Huey performed until 7pm but the crowd was not really showing much enthusiasm. I guess they missed our Star Jasmine. Anyway it was a good day but could have been better. Maybe the hotter weather is making it not quite as comfortable in the front bar these days. Any way what there was was good so we'll look forward to the next one in the third week of November at the Austral Inn Hotel Quorn.”

“Another awesome Lazy Sunday Afternoon at the Austral Inn Hotel Quorn. Well Lazy is never correct when speaking of these arvo's it's just full on entertainment from 3pm onwards until the musos have had enough or the Guv'nor or Constabulary pull the pin. This time we had a plethora of Musicians wishing to sing or play or a pub full of people enjoying the music. OK it did get a little loud and moved into a Karaoke style occasionally but this was still with an ever changing backing band lineup and Walkups wishing to perform. Jasmine Reschke , David Hughes, Brenna GIlbert, Stuart Bailey, Michael Godfrey, Derek and Linda Wilson, Bob McLeod, Craig Moat, Craig Ranger, Ruth & Sue Tulloch and Katie Walsh. If I missed anyone out it's because there were just so many”
Lazy Sunday Afternoon No.5 was Alive !!!!
"Hey Hey It's Sunday" well it was a Lazy Sunday Afternoon in the Austral Inn Hotel Quorn again. Great show again as usual to be expected. With some surprise artists along as guests. This time we had Andy Kilcross, Ashley Parkinson, Stuart Bailey along with the usual favourites Jasmine Reschke as well as Dave Hughes and John Sharp. Also Brenna and her Brother Tyler GIlbert. Great Music and a great afternoon the pub fornt bar was on it's limits again with people spilling over into the street.
Quorn Musical News
“Well Trendsetters,Quorn came alive again for another "Lazy Sunday Arvo" of music in the Austral Hotel. A gathering of musicians and it is always a surprise to see who will attend and sing or play. Many entertainers wanting to sing along with the "band", Kenny on Drums, Michael on Bass and Dave on Guitar and Harmonica, with John on Keyboard for a while and Jazz doing a set on guitar and vocals,walkups that played guitar and sang some songs. Brenna sang some songs and she is going to be a star of the future for sure. Councillor Katie snag a few assisted by Ros on backups. The day was great and the guys tried to finish at 730pm saying last song but the crowd was enjoying themselves too much that they ended up playing until 830pm, finishing aptly on "Always Look On the Bright Side of Life", sung in a fake British accent or two. I wonder what the guys and gals will come up with next time this has taken off and is looked forward to by the musos as well as the crowd for a great day out.”
Lazy Sunday Arvo No.3
“Lazy Sunday Arvo's at the Austral Inn are rockin' which is a bit of an oxymoron really, not so lazy at all !! Well the afternoon went off a treat with Dave Hughes on Guitar, Harmonica and vocals ( and occasionally on the Djembe Drum) , Jasmine Reschke on Guitar and Vocals, Ken Anderson on Drums, Keyboard, Bass Guitar and vocals,ably assisted by some walkups Craig Moat (Moaty) singing, Brenna Gilbert singing and a guest appearance by the maestro Ashley Parkinson on Keyboard and Guitar plus vocals.
The crowd was mostly appreciative of the entertainment. It was a fairly relaxed regime basically with the main crew playing as much as they liked and the walkups filling in for a few songs each during the afternoon and into early evening. Nadine of the Austral was greatly appreciative of the crowd and the day's entertainment and many favourable comments were heard along the way. We all look forward to the next Lazy Sunday Arvo which I believe will be on the 15/06/2011.”
Lazy Sunday Afternoon No.2 15/05/2011
“Hey Hey My My, well guys and gals the Lazy Sunday Arvo at the Austral on the 17th April 2011 was fun, attended by a rather eclectic group of onlookers and hardened sunday drinkers.
Dave Hughes and Greg McIntyre ended up being the two main artists performing with Craig Moat singing a couple. Some good music at times, did get a little loud in places so they handed out earplugs to the people so that they could continue drinking without having their fingers in their ears. But quite a good day especially for two guys that have never played together. Greg's Gravelly Voice ws full of Character and Dave's clear Vocalization was complimentary. They both played guitar and Harmonica and at one time had duelling Harps on a song or two just for something different. There's more music to be had from these two guys once they have practised a bit more and found some common ground.”
Lazy Sunday Arvo at the Austral (Every Third Sunday of the month)
“Well he's an interesting artist, Hasn't performed live in a few years other than with other bands..... Quorn waits impatiently for Dave to get his act together and release an album and then tour the local public establishments. Then maybe add in a bit of local busking and well who knows where this could all lead.”
