HOODOO GURUS AT NEW HARBORD DIGGERS

Iconic Australian rock band the Hoodoo Gurus will perform at the state-of-the-art new Harbord Diggers  at a special members event on opening day - Saturday June 30.

Famous for acclaimed hits such as ‘What’s My Scene’, ‘I Want You Back’ and ‘My Girl’, the Aussie rockers will provide members with a night to remember in celebration of the opening of the historic club’s completed Stage One redevelopment project.

It’s been just over two years since Mounties Group commenced work on the intergenerational new precinct and locals and members alike are in for an array of new dining, entertainment and lifestyle options.

Greg Pickering, Chief Executive Officer of Mounties Group, said that the Hoodoo Gurus performing at the new venue was a way to thank members and locals for their patience during the development process, yet also officially kick off the excitement and launch of the new venue.

“The Hoodoo Gurus are one of Australia’s greatest rock bands and we are absolutely thrilled they’ll be joining us for our official opening night. The performance is available exclusively to members, however a one-year membership to Harbord Diggers only costs $6 and people can sign up or renew now before this special opening event. "

There is also a huge schedule of entertainment throughout the opening day as well as free events and entertainment planned for the opening few weeks. Entertainment planned for Saturday June 30 includes acoustic singers, an interactive circus workshop for the kids, fire dancers, jugglers, acrobats and DJ entertainment. Three new restaurants within the Diggers precinct, as well as the new bar, café and indoor play area, will also be unveiled.

One of the three restaurants in the new venue is AcquaFresca, brainchild of Giovanni and Marilyn of Pilu fame, that will offer authentic regional Italian cuisine in a relaxed setting within an unrivalled location.

A haven for meat-eaters and lovers of seafood, Teddy Larkin’s Seafood & Steakhouse has juicy cuts of meat, burgers and a succulent selection of ocean fresh catches, and WaterDragon, will pack a punch with a mouth-watering menu of Asian Pacific fusion cuisine.

“We have created a unique selection of high quality dining and stylish yet relaxed eateries, blending an exotic combination of flavours from around the globe. The superb quality of food will go hand in hand with our unmatched coastal vistas spanning across the horizon and into Curl Curl Beach,” Mr Pickering added.

The Hoodoo Gurus Members Event will be held on Saturday 30 June from 8.30pm. Day entertainment commences from 11.30am.
