Yeppoon Beach gets rocking

By LYNDAL GAWEN ? YEPPOON rocked on Saturday night with about 1000 people at a beachfront concert and workshop.

As the sun set, and the ocean rolled in behind them, Gone Tribal started the event with African drum beats and belly dancing by Sabaya.

Gone Tribal later returned for a second set on stage and a workshop off stage.

Showing the latest in funky tap dancing was J Tap and the Counter Beats, who also provided lessons to those in the audience who were interested. J Tap and the Counter Beats invited all youth to a workshop and a gig at this year's Village Feast of Arts and Music.

Sandy Harris, youth development officer for Livingstone Shire Council, said a crowd which fluctuated around 1000 attended the event from 5pm to about 10pm.

Ending the night was Brisbane band Glasshouse. The two acts before Glasshouse were Paul Clarke and Rockhampton band Vega.
