Country gospel band to rock community

THE MURGON community are preparing for a toe tapping, line dancing country gospel time.

The Fritz Road Band from Gympie plans to lift the community's spirits with their seven-piece family band.

Bassist Phil Herrington said the band plays a variety of country gospel songs to audiences of all ages.

Breathing in the open air and relaxing on hay bales, country music lovers will enjoy tunes, with a Fritz Road spin, from the likes of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and Elvis Presley.

"There's quite a buzz response we get playing these older songs, which bring back memories for older audience members," Mr Herrington said.

"I guess our music isn't the kind of music young people listen to, but those who come along always have a good time."

The band was excited about the Murgon church's enthusiasm to host the group and look forward to sharing their music with the community.

"There is a lot of good to be had in the morals and messages in the songs we play," he said.

The band's primary focus is branching out to small events in rural communities, Mr Herrington said.

The band will perform in Gympie, Wide Bay, South Burnett and North Burnett venues as part of their 'Take your shoes off Moses' tour.

The free event will tap off on Saturday March 24 from 5.30pm until 7pm, at the New Horizons Christian Church in Murgon.
