I do realise that a lot of you are probably sick to death of hearing me going on and on and on about Evermore, but suck it up, because I’ll be talking about them for a long time yet, :).
So those of you who may not know…I was lucky enough to see Evermore LIVE in concert at the weekend. GERF (Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund) held a fun day/concert at the Traralgon Showgrounds on Sunday to raise money for the Gippslanders who were affected by Black Saturday’s devastating bushfires.
We toodled on over at lunchtime, in time for Brooke to see Dora the Explorer and her ute sidekick Boots the monkey perform live on stage…she was totally enthralled! It wasn’t too bad, except that the sun was SO HOT! There was very little shade, so unfortunately we (I) decided not to stay long, and would head back to my brother’s for a couple of hours and head back when it cooled down. We had Mum & Dave coming down from Melbourne also.
Hails wasn’t too impressed with the decision to leave, as she wanted to go on the jumping castles and get her face painted, but the lines for the castles were AT LEAST 100 people long, and in direct sun. I told her she could do all that when we return (little did I know Mum & Dave were going to take 3 hours to get back, and the kid’s activities would be long packed up before we returned, lol).
We headed back to the showgrounds at 7pm, in time to see Lee Kernagan and Adam Brand perform. I’m not a big country music fan, but it was still a good experience to see them perform!
After what already seemed like a long night, Evermore finally came on stage at around 9:30pm, and they were amazing! They played some of the more popular songs (Hey boys & girls, Light surrounding you, running, etc) and also some of their older stuff. Hails and I managed to get almost to the front (we could have got further, but we could see really well from where we were and didn’t run the risk of being trampled by the 100’s of teeny boppers jumping to the music, lol.
Brooke and Isabella enjoyed the night, although Bella did get a little upset with the drums at one stage…they were a little on the loud side, but she soon settled back to sleep, with the help of my gorgeous Mum.
So for $15 (plus the $50+ I spent on food, etc), we had a fun filled day and night, and I’m sure it will be a happy memory for the kids to remember as the grow up :).
