Nothing signals summer like a cool drink, creekside, with awesome local music providing the soundtrack. And if that sounds like summer to you, then Currumbin RSL delivers in spades this month.
The venue’s Deck Acoustic gigs have been chilled waterside affairs, but the format has changed to incorporate a Friday session which runs from 5.00pm and a Saturday session which runs from 3.00pm.
While the space is open seven days a week for everything from a caffeine fix to lazy lunches and dinners, Friday and Saturday afternoons allow you to satisfy your music addiction by the water’s edge as well as support local talent.
