Maleny long lunch set to whet appetites

Following the sold-out success of the inaugural Maleny Long Lunch in October 2021 the event is making a triumphant return to the Maleny Showgrounds Pavilion.

On Sunday April 3rd one of Australia`s greatest musical talents, Rai Thistlethwayte, will travel up the hill to wow audiences at the second Maleny Long Lunch.

Rai is well known for the classic hits he penned as front man of pop giants Thirsty Merc such as ’20 Good Reasons”, ‘In The Summertime’ (The Bondi Rescue theme song for over 11 years) and ‘Someday, Someday’ plus many more. Rai has also laid down a meaty reputation as one on the world’s best Jazz Pianists in demand by the very best jazz virtuosos, including James Morrison and Christian McBride who has described Rai as ‘The most exciting jazz musician to emerge from this country in recent years’

The Maleny Long Lunch will again be offering up a sumptuous feed courtesy of our mates at Smokehouse Beauty & The Beard and thanks to our partners from Bird In Hand Wines and Sunshine & Sons, there will again be amazing quality wines and cocktails as well as a selection of beers available to purchase from the bar.
