TOOWOOMBA'S Garden City Country Music Association commence their 2018 Socials engagements on Sunday February 11 at their new location at St. John's Lutheran Church Hall, 431 Bridge Street Wilsonton, opposite the old airport, commencing at 1pm.

Entertainment will be by members of Garden City CMA plus Matthew Munro, the overall winner of the Country Music Rush competition held in Oakey in March 2017. With around 160 entries, being judged as overall winner shows the talent this young man has. A young up and coming country performer, Matthew who comes from Bundaberg, is fast making a name for himself with fans as he performs at various Country Music Festivals around South East Queensland. Matthew also won the Bundaberg 2017 Easter Roundup and with the talent he possesses we are sure this won't be the last victory for Matthew.

Garden City CMA's management hope the move to Wilsonton will be supported by their many loyal supporters, both past and new, and the venue shall remain available for many years to come. Why not come along and join in the celebrations of Garden City's first Social of the year at their new location.

Entry is only $8 with afternoon tea provided plus raffles and lucky door prize on the day.
