The jazz and shiraz were both flowing smoothly on Saturday 24 March, 2018 when the Band of the 1st Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment (1RAR Band) performed a free concert at the Burdekin Theatre, Ayr. For those unlucky ones who haven’t yet heard of them, the 1RAR Band is a highly regarded component of the Australian Defence Force in North Queensland.

The event, which was intended for the Theatre Forecourt was nearly washed out by lingering dark clouds, however the quick venue change didn’t deter more than 200 guests who attended the aptly named Jazz n Shiraz n Tapas event.

With delicious hot meals available for purchase and a wide selection of shiraz on offer behind the bar, guests were able to relax and enjoy the soothing sounds of the 1RAR Band in comfort.
