CONCERT 5 - Cabaret Night

Entertainer extraordinaire, Jason Barry-Smith and pianist Luke Volker, present an evening of Cabaret in our own “Café de Tyalgum.” Sit at tables of four for an hour and a half of light classics, wine and nibbles.

“Throw all your cares and troubles away

At our late night Cabaret!

You’ll be glad that you came, we’ll make sure that you stay 

At our late-night Cabaret!


We’ll amaze and seduce you, then thrill you.

 It’s Jason and Luke taking charge.

Who knows where this journey may lead to:

Perhaps even special guest stars?


The only ingredient missing is YOU

Come relax at the end of the day

With some fun and a song and a drink or two

At our late-night Cabaret!”
