It’s all a go-go for groovy music event

PICTURE Austin Powers meets The Rutles meets Gilligan's Island and you'll get an idea of what to expect from musical group Darren J Ray and The Love Bugs.

The group's "groovy" show features guys and girls who sing and go-go dance to a mix of pop gems from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Formed by musician Darren J Ray, the performance act has won Best Production Show at the Entertainer of The Year Awards, three times in a row.

Now the band is making its way to Ipswich to play a special free show at the Brothers Leagues Club.

"We like to perform hits that the audience can groove along to with us," he said. "It's just like a party."

As well as playing classic material from artists such as The Beatles and The Beach Boys, the group also plays a selection of their catchy originals, some of which have received national radio airplay.

Mr Ray said his group was looking forward to bringing the show to Brothers.

He said it would be a great chance for in Ipswich to see the performance for the first time.

"Patrons can expect a show jam-packed with fun, costumes and great vocals," he said.

"It will take them on a magical mystery tour to the fab days when love-ins were in, peace was cool and flower power was happenin'."

Darren J Ray and The Love Bugs will perform at Brothers this Sunday at 4pm. For details phone 3817 2999.
