Musos team up for a sprinkling of Stardust at Yeppoon

TWO talented musicians - Bruce McCumstie and Phil Weaver -will bring their magic to the stage at Yeppoon's Footlights tonight and tomorrow night with the tribute show, Stardust.

Bruce McCumstie is a well-known Australian singer-songwriter who is recognised for his stellar performances over the years as "Willie", including sell-out shows at Crown Casino in Melbourne and Burswood Casino in Perth, and other major festivals and venues.

Over the years Bruce's production shows, Luv Ya Willie, Stardust, Legends of Country and, more recently, 4 Highwaymen and Willie and Kris, have thrilled audiences across Australia.

Bruce has performed at many major festivals and events throughout Australia during his career, including main stage for the first 14 Gympie Musters and almost every Tamworth Country Music Festival since the beginning.

 

Phil Weaver joins with Bruce to give a talented and tasteful accompaniment on piano, recreating not only those wonderful "Stardust memories" but also including a sprinkle of other great and much-loved hits from across the years.

Phil is a talented musician who has supported many famous acts over the years, including Rod Stewart, Steve Winwood, The Drifters and Joe Cocker.

His accompaniment includes his ability to recreate a "full" sound through his keyboard, including a full bass, strings and many other sounds.

Stardust is still acclaimed to be one of the greatest-selling albums of all time and this two-hour presentation will entertain and delight audiences who will enjoy reliving the memories and singing along with the hits.
