Nothing captures the energy, vitality, humour, chaos and sheer joy of a Bushwackers performance better than The Chardonnay Show.
Like most things the Bushies have been involved in, the ‘tradition’ of the Chardonnay Show grew out of another. On Sunday 30th, 1994 the band gathered at its Tamworth home – the Longyard Hotel, for the annual ‘Farewell to the Festival’ show.
In the audience were renowned children's entertainer Don Spencer (Play School) and his family. Their plan was to stay for “one song and one drink” and drive back to Sydney.
Well, one song led to several, and one chardonnay led to another. Don is a generous man – the chardonnay flowed and was shared around. The pub ran out.
Needless to say, they didn’t leave that day.This was the first of the many memorable moments and performances that have occurred over the years on that last Sunday.
Here for the first time, the Chardonnay Show is captured in all its glory!
