Vinyl Dreams Book Launch

DATE  Friday 9/6 at 6pm

Noosa Arts Theatre is pleased to host the launch of Tony Wellington’s latest book, Vinyl Dreams – how the 1970s changed music.

Brimming with beguiling stories and little-known details, Vinyl Dreams is a fast-paced romp through the musical decade that defined all that came after. From the golden age of progressive rock to the new wave revolution, it traces the transformations that reverberate through to today, showcasing the fervour and enduring legacy of the decade’s music.

“Happily shines a forensic light on the finest musicians of the age, while gleefully exposing the fakes, the frauds and the febrile”– Rob Hirst, founding member of Midnight Oil

“One thing I love about this book is how Tony Wellington humanises the rock star.”– Jon Coghill, Powderfinger drummer

The event will incorporate a rock quiz plus a special appearance by drummer Duncan McQueen, who was in the thick of it in the 70s, and who will demonstrate some of the rhythms of the era.

This event is brought to you by Annie’s Books on Peregian.

This is a free event however bookings with Annie’s Books on Peregian are essential. To do so please contact Annie’s Books on 5448 2053 or

You are deceived everyday. In fact you like to be deceived. But who deceives you the most? Yourself.

All the deceiver has to do is to suggest you a story, you are the one who will narrate the rest.

Introducing Daniel Hidden’s new show, Seeing is beLIEving, where he will give you a glimpse into tricking the mind.

Who is Daniel Hidden?
Calling himself “A Deception Artist” Daniel Hidden is an astonishing new breed of magician who is taking magic to the next level and bringing the art into the 21st century. Inspired by the very best ones in the industry like Derren Brown and David Blaine, he creates his own original routines of outstanding deceptions presented by a unique and saucy showmanship. Now calling Australia home, this laid-back charismatic artist weaves a special blend of mind-blowing deceptions that include but are not limited to Mentalism, impossible feats and illusions, and razor-sharp sleight of hand. His interactive shows provide a crowd-pleasing experience that will leave you and your friends talking about the mysteries and fun for days and weeks to come.

“You wouldn’t think you would be laughing much in this show, but OMG this man is a comedian”
“The most interactive show I have ever seen.”
“A show of poetic deceptions”
“I think I’m never gonna forget tonight, this memory, I’m gonna remember for so long. I feel like a new person, my mind is open to more things.”
