Taromeo Country Music Club tunes up to replace stolen gear

YOU can't keep the Taromeo Country Music Club down.

The amateur music club is still coping with the theft of thousands of dollars worth of music equipment.

The gear was stolen from the Blackbutt Memorial Hall where the club practises.

A month on, none of the gear has been recovered.

Club treasurer Connie Mustapic said a member suggested organising a musical event to help raise funds to replace the gear, and word slowly spread.

Music clubs from throughout south-east Queensland got in contact and offered to come to the event to do their bit.

"It's a few of the clubs that we usually go and visit that are coming along," she said.

"They heard of our dilemma and decided to come."

Ms Mustapic said she was humbled with the offers of help from the clubs that had contacted her.

The event will be held at Blackbutt Community Hall on Sunday, October 18, from 10am and will feature music and entertainment.

Entry will be $5.
