Tunes get the park swinging

TOOWOOMBA couple Maria and Jim Lindquist don't need a fancy dance floor to start swinging, just the right tunes.

The couple couldn't resist the temptation for a bit of dance yesterday, never mind the fact they were in the middle of Queens Park.

Mr and Mrs Lindquist were among dozens of people who gathered to listen to the Alison Bryant Quartet in the city park.

The band's performance kicked off the Toowoomba Regional Council's annual, free Summer Tunes program.

Each weekend until February 24, bands will perform across some of the city's parks.

"We have been coming for about five years and go to the different venues," Mrs Lindquist said.

"We love to dance. We used to dance at Cloudland in Brisbane.

"It was wonderful."

These days the couple take any opportunity to display some fancy footwork, even if there isn't a dance floor.

The Summer Tunes program continues next weekend with country musician James Anderssen performing in Queens Park from 10am to noon, the Garry Poole Band at Picnic Point from noon to 3pm, Irish band Around the Corner at Laurel Bank Park from noon to 3pm and Yakety Saxes at the Newtown Park State Rose Garden from noon to 3pm.
