I had enjoyed the 70th Birthday celebrations for Bob Dylan at the Caravan Music Club earlier in the year and was looking forward to this show.

With the Queenscliff Music Festival the next week, I hadn't planned on doing much the week before, but did end up going to see Neil Murray the previous night.

I don't get to go see many choirs perform, so I was interested to see the Melbourne Mass Gospel Choir as it would be one of the biggest choirs I had seen.

Also having Tracey and Suzannah perform along with the musicians from the Rockwiz band would make it a great show even if it was a regular gig.

I hadn't actually heard the albums that the songs from this gig was taken from, but they sounded great during the gig and it was good enough to sell out three shows.

I am not sure if there will be a follow-up show, but given the success of these shows, it may be a possibility.
