On Saturday (October 16) people from across the region joined together to Rock The Ranges in Quorn.
The day was filled with awesome cover bands and crazy outfits (thanks for those goes to Chunky Custard) and the weather held up its end of the bargain turning into the country music festival we had been waiting for through every lockdown and quarantine order.
Acts included, Chunky Custard, Andy and the Rockits, Critical Limit, Acoustic Juice and Jo Page as well as headliners for the event, fresh off the plane from the AFL Grand Final, Eskimo Joe.
A Covid safe crowd gathered with Akubra's in one hand and camping chairs in the other and enjoyed everything the day had to offer including a feed from some of the region's very popular food trucks - Keirans Kitchen, J-Burgs and Smokey Uppercuts.
One thing some people forgot with the weather having forecast clouds and potential showers, was the sunscreen and a few pink arms and legs could be spotted by the end of the day.
Chunky Custard hit the stage around 4pm, and brought the energy big time, along with too many costume changes to count and a few MA15+ jokes and inuendos.
Grease Lightning was a fan favourite, and the mood was well and truly electric by the end of their set.
The country vibes returned with MC for the day and final support act, Big Andy and The Rockits, who let us sail away on a cloud with covers including Fleetwood Mac, while joined on stage by first act of the day, Jo Page.
The final performance of the day came just as the sun started falling and began blinding us for a short period of time until it dropped behind the stage and turned the sky a warm pink.
Eskimo Joe played time honoured favourites, including Black Fingernails, Red Wine, How Does It Feel, Echo and personal favourite (of Jackie's) London Bombs.
The encore was called and they came back out to play two more songs, closing the day with From The Sea from 2004 album, A Song Is A City.
A magical day of music, laughter and Covid safe toe tapping.
Thanks to all who made the day so much fun!
