Super Pleased To Announce …

Historical Music Moments In The Beer Garden 

Bearded Dragon is super pleased to announce a great new act coming to the Main Stage 18th December. For those who are nostalgic and remember the early days of the hotel opening and offering a Live Music in the Beer Garden that had about 12 tables, you might remember “Roo”! He was a true showman and danced and serenaded the crowd on our picnic table tops in the middle of the crowd, (screw public liability we didn’t even know what it meant in the 90’s). We fondly remember the “Angry Penguins” and no one can forget that stand out, incredible set of lungs … what a voice! 

Well he is back with his amazingly talented daughter for a one off special gig just for us here at Tamborine and if you want to grab your own piece of awesome Live Music Memories … then we will see you Sunday 18th from 2pm.

A Bit More About “Carly & Roo” 

Carly Mackerras started singing around the house as a toddler; and just wouldn’t stop. Luckily, this wasn’t a problem as her dad, Roo, is a professional musician and, of course, he encouraged her. So she sang whenever possible and learned to play guitar, piano, violin and drums. 

After she finished high school, she asked her dad to help her start gigging and he jumped at the chance. They have now done over 250 professional gigs as an acoustic duo and she has amassed a large repertoire of all-time favourites and cool funky tunes. She has become a wonderful and alluring vocalist and is still only 22!

Roo has been performing professionally around the north coast of NSW since 1984 at almost every type of venue and function (including quite a few gigs with the “Angry Penguins” at the Bearded Dragon in the late 90’s). He has also won 3 ‘Dolphin Awards’: 2 for Best Male Vocalist and 1 for Most Popular Solo Entertainer.  

Come and see this special musical combo while you can as it is a special occasion. You can find our more on Carly’s facebook page, Carly M Music.
