Dire Straits – a retrospective

Thu 25 August at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Handpicked at Canobolas Hall features a killer house band comprised of Orange’s most prominent rock musicians.
One of the region’s beautifully restored small halls, will be transformed into a vibrant music venue for the Handpicked events, set amongst cherry orchards on the foothills of Mount Canobolas.

The Handpicked House Band features Matt Arthur, Kyle Manning, Luke Ferguson and Dave Egan. These boys are a show all on their own, so lovers of live music can expect a roof-raising night of tunes, great food and singing along with everyone in the hall.

Woodfired pizzas, and refreshments from Badlands Beer, Ross Hill Wines and See Saw Wines will be available to purchase
