THEIR team name was inspired by a 1969 song by John Fogerty, so it’s no surprise that Rowan Hill, Stuart Payne and Jeremy Payne are hosting a music-themed night to raise money for their Outback Air Race quest.

The trio, aka Bad Mooney Rising, is competing in the race from Brisbane to Broome in August to raise money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).

The event in the Surrounds’ music showroom will test guests with a music quiz and five competitors will also have an opportunity to showcase their favourite tracks for the chance to win a carton of Picardy wine.

Mr Payne said the team name was an “appalling” play on their aircraft type and the song Bad Moon Rising.

“Having worked with the RFDS on previous outback air races and travelled the outback, Bad Mooney Rising understands the vital role that the RFDS plays in providing their ‘mantle of safety’ to all who live or travel in rural or outback Australia,” he said.
