Champs to Head Musical Entertainment

The website of Greg Champion or ‘Champs’ is clear about his career and offerings describing him as “a singer, songwriter, country/folk musician, corporate entertainer, musical comedian, radio personality and event host”.

In addition Greg is widely liked and recognised for his regular role on the acclaimed and much enjoyed ABC Radio program ‘The Coodabeen Champions’.

Well Greg or Champs will attract key interest at this year’s Alexandra Truck Ute & Rod Show where he will head the musical entertainment bill from the main stage in Grant Street on the Sunday.

Greg will also participate in the dedication ceremony for the Victorian Truck Drivers Memorial on the Saturday afternoon in Rotary Park in Alexandra.

Doubtless he will have an appropriate musical contribution with a trucking or transport theme.

Also joining Champs on the main stage will be the talented and very successful Australian country band Jetty Road whose ‘Far Away Places’ Album recently achieved 40 weeks on the ARIA Australian Country Albums Chart.

Their song “I am a Dreamer’ was also a finalist in the latest International Country Song Competition.

These sorts of accolades reflect the band’s musical talents and continuing creative development.

Also making a guest appearance will be Emma Hales who has an almost local background, coming from the nearby Yarra Valley.

Emma’s contribution to the recent Alexandra Easter Festival was judged as something special so she has been invited to perform again.

As a singer-songwriter her style and presentation has country, roots and blues features and she is a strong addition to the program.

Over the past eighteen years the Truck Show Committee has always engaged top musical talents with widespread appeal to perform and provide the main musical entertainment.

With the bookings of Greg Champion and Jetty Road and also Emma Hales the bill this year will maintain the record and reputation for good country music and entertainment.
