It was a perfect night for the final a day on the green at Bimbadgen on Saturday. Warm afternoon culminating with a cool evening. At 7.00pm Chris Isaak dressed in his famous 15 kilogram blue mirrored suit took to the stage and shortly after owned it. The 59 year old was in fine form. “I hope I am in the right place dressed like this or I need to go ice skating”, The Californian crooner remains as charming as he is talented. Introducing the audience to an array of hits and covers during his almost 2 hour set.

The Hunter Valley got to continue its love affair with Mick Hucknall and his classy band. Joining the musicians from the side of the stage after a brief instrumental introduction, Hucknall looked happy and at home. Dressed casual but there was nothing unrehearsed about the bands performance. Hitting almost perfect notes from their first song ‘Look at you now’ Hucknall romanced the audience with a very appealing collection of hits. The crowd responded from the onset, “A new flame” signalled a calling to all people to get up and join the party.
