"Best Canterbury Country show ever I say, awesome band, playing mostly REAL traditional country music."
- P.T. (Request Night, October 2014)

 

"As far as we are concerned, this is the best monthly country music show in Australia. If you're a country music fan in NSW and haven't seen this show, boy have you missed out. "
     - Central Coast Country Music

 

"Canterbury Country ...
I believe is Australia's premier showcase... Wonderfully organised by Bob Howe, great venue, great sound, great lighting, great people and the muso's there in the backing band are some of the absolute best. If anyone likes country music they are mad to miss it!!!"
- Steve Shepherd
