A night of fun is sure to prevail!!

The Grand Ole Pigry… a concert in a theatre … with a Stage Manager… and a Dressin’ Room, a Big Curtain and a Candy Bar. The Pigs put together a Country Music show just like they do in Nashville… Now in its second year of hundreds!

The Pigs are a one-of-a-kind musical experience. Their combination of fine musicianship and wicked humour has been enjoyed by festival-goers, TV viewers, radio listeners and motoring enthusiasts all over Australia and internationally.
