Variety show's nod to classics

THE New Horizons Club's biggest event of the year was yesterday showcased at Scotch Oakburn's senior campus.

The Beatles, Randy Newman, Chuck Berry and Kenny Rogers were just some of the names to be featured in the club's fifth annual variety show.

Performers were supported by Launceston band Midnight Rendezvous guitarist Keith Treasure, who helped deliver some of the classic tunes.

Signature moves such as Pete Townshend's (The Who) arm windmill and Berry's guitar hop proved popular with the applauding audience.

Group co-ordinator Pearl Treasure said the show was a chance for club members to shine.

``We spend all year getting ready for the show,'' Mrs Treasure said.

``It's all run by volunteers and the performances are made up completely of people involved with New Horizons.''

She said it was the first time the event had been held at Scotch Oakburn.

``We are very, very thankful for the use of the hall. It's very hard to find a venue, especially at this time of year,'' she said.
