Rockfest acts thrill fans
ABOUT 250 people rocked up to the Rockhampton Music Bowl on Saturday night to tune into young pop band Operator Please at Rockfest 2011.
Operator Please wowed the crowd with their four new songs and stylish costumes.
Keyboard player Chris Holland told The Morning Bulletin the band was excited over its visit to the Beef Capital.
“We haven’t been to Rockhampton before, but we are definitely interested in checking it out,” he said.
Local support bands and musicians who graced the stage included Ashwin Acharya, This Isn’t Paris, The Shortfall and 16-year-old Taralee Cosstick.
In the past Rockfest has proved to be a popular event bringing some top Aussie acts to Rockhampton.
Previous headliners included Gyroscope, The Butterfly Effect and Calling All Cars.
The Rockhampton Regional Council event was organised with the Queensland Government’s A-Venue Contemporary Youth Music Initiative and was the highlight of the local celebrations for National Youth Week.
