THIS Saturday night the Biggenden community will come together for an outdoor concert with Dozzi.

And at the same time they will be remembering their mate, Mark Elliott.

Sisters Andrea, Jesse and Nina, otherwise known as Dozzi, are performing for free with all funds raised going to the AGL Rescue Helicopter.

The musicians from Brisbane are making their mark on the Australian country music scene and recently were voted a top five finalist in the 2013 Country Music People's Choice Awards.

The night is being organised by the Biggenden Apex Club and will start at 7pm at the showgrounds.

There will be a licensed bar, canteen and free camping.

Club secretary Robbie Radel said the idea of a concert came about last year.

"Sadly Mark died from injuries sustained in a tragic accident on September 26, but the club thought it fitting that AGL Helicopter Service would benefit from the night's proceeds," Mr Radel said.

"We have received a lot of interest in the night and tickets for $10 are still available," he said.

Also on sale on the night will be the Central and North Burnett Times' Hot Farmers 2013 calendar with sales also benefiting AGL.
