CABARET lovers are invited to head to the Melville Bowling Club for a special performance by the Leeming Area Community Band (LACB) later this month.

Cabaret on the Cove promises an evening of incredible music overlooking the Swan River.

The event is also a fundraiser for the LACB, which is hoping to raise enough money to purchase new instruments and music.

Concert co-ordinator Stacy Fietz said the evening would feature music from the stage and the screen as well as a range of big band classics.

“We’ll be doing some numbers from the King of Swing Benny Goodman as well as some famous movie themes like James Bond,” she said.

“The band is completely not for profit, so the money we make will go towards purchasing a euphonium and percussion instruments.”

Cabaret on the Cove will be held at the Melville Bowling Club from 7pm to 10pm on Saturday, August 27.

Tickets are $20 ($15 concession) with a light supper included. Large tables for groups are available and guests may bring their own nibbles.

The event is strictly no BYO, with drinks available at the bar.

For tickets contact Jacqui on 0477 942 557.
