That's a wrap! (almost) Tamworth 2014 

Eleven days, nineteen shows. WOW!

Tamworth 2014 has been an amazing experience for the Goats, and with just one show left today we have been blown away by our time at the festival. 

This years Tamworth Country Music Festival has been one of unprecedented success, we have played eighteen packed shows so far including appearances at the Fanzone Stage, the Peel Street Stage and the Bicentennial Park Stage as well as at The People's Choice Awards.

We have been lucky enough to play with The Pub Group again this year, and performed at the Southgate Inn, The Longyard and The Pub to record crowds. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the wonderful support we have had from the public, from the hundreds of people who attended our shows and bought our merchandise and CDs. We would also like to thank The Pub Group for their support, West's Leagues Club for our festival recovery show and all of the media who covered us over the festival.

We are feeling amazing (albeit a little tired and sore!) and already excited about next years festival! 

We are packing up the Goat float and moseying out of Tamworth this evening after our final show at West's, back to Brisbane for a few days off to recuperate and then back into a host of gigs in Brisbane, Byron Bay and Ballina. 

What a truly amazing experience. For a full collection of photos from the festival check out our Facebook page 

Thank you again Tamworth for welcoming us with open arms!


Tamworth Shows Announced! 

We are currently making our way down the coast on our annual pilgrimage to the Tamworth Country Music Festival and are delighted to annouce we will be playing a whopping 18 shows at this years festival!

We are listed in the official gig guide and all of our shows are up on our website or take a peek at our official Tamworth poster (which we will be plastering all over Tamworth, in case anyone was in doubt the goats are in town!)

We will be putting in appearances all over town including The Longyard, Southgate Inn, The Pub, Peel Street HQ Stage, Main Stage in Bicentennail Park and Shoppingworld so you can get your Goat fix no matter where you are.

Can't wait to see you there!

Cairns Hit Awards! 

Another nomination for another award. Last year we took out the Cairns Hit Award as BEST SHAKIN' & MOVIN' BAND in the North and we have been nominated again in the 2014 awards.

Recognising the best in Cairns and Far North Queensland entertainment and arts, The Hit Awards are your way to vote for who you think have been this year's most talented entertainment movers and shakers through an online poll.

It's true, we've just finished voting for People's Choice Awards, but if you really LOVE THE GOATS and think we deserve a chance in this one, please take time to vote Goats... 

...and throw in the LION'S DEN HOTEL as a Wildcard for best venue, as not only do they book the Goats, they sponsor us petrol to get to Tamworth each year.... beyond the call of duty for a venue :)

We're excited!

Voting closes at the end of December. Simply follow the link to make your vote count.
