The second day of the Mundi Mundi Bash started with the traditional Undi Run. Outfits from mankinis to Nun outfits, with everything in between possibly imaginable. There were prizes for fastest runners and best “dressed.” The semi-finalist parade was something to see, with several dubious outfits.
The Undi Run was followed by the Doggie Fashion parade. Contestants could enter their dogs for judging, or as owner/dog combo or best trick. This was another fun event to begin the day with.
Once the concert gates opened, families and friends picked their favourite spot to enjoy the show. Melanie Dyer was first up, with a strong country voice that is reminiscent of Dolly Parton. Mick Thomas then took the stage and opened with the Weddings Parties Anything classic “Father’s Day”, getting the crowd amped up early. Another highlight was the Australian story of convict cannibals, “A Tale They Won’t Believe.”
The Eurogliders continued the tour into nostalgia with a sing-a-long to songs such as “Heaven (Must be There)” and “Can’t Wait to See You.”
Next up was Sarah McLeod of The Superjesus fame who rocks a mean guitar with a strong captivating voice. This was closely followed by The Black Sorrows who just reinforced what talent we have in this country. Frontman Joe Camilleri has a captivating stage presence, whether he was singing, playing guitar or on saxophone.
After a tribute to the late Olivia Newton-John by the Mundi House Band, The Rolling Stones Review played their favourite Stones classics. Tim Rogers as “Jumping Jack Flash,” Tex Perkins and Adalita duet of “Wild Horses” were two standout songs.
The night finished up with Jon Stevens and again classic songs such as “Reach Out” and several songs from the INXS back catalogue had the crowd singing along in full voice.
DJ Master Baitz entertained the crowd as they made their way back to their campsites, tired and happy.
