THE BACKYARD BALLADEER
From his home base in Sawtell on the north coast of NSW, singer/songwriter and teller of tall stories, ERROL GRAY travels Australia with his one man show THE BACKYARD BALLADEER. With his acoustic guitar, stompbox, harmonica and a distinctly Aussie sense of humour, ERROL has his audience cracking up with songs and the occasional bush poem about everyday situations that happen to us all.   With song titles like WORKING FOR CENTRELINK, THEY WONDER WHY YOU DRINK,  JUST LET IT RIP  and TURDULENCE (The Dreaded Bedpan)  I'm sure you get the idea. 

Scroll down the page and have a look at the video which will take you to ERROL'S YouTube page where you can check out some more clips  and if you like what you see and hear, you can even buy a CD or two.  If you have any queries just give ERROL a call on the number below or shoot him off an email.

BIG 4 BONNY HILLS !
EVERY MONDAY NIGHT

If you're travelling up or down the Pacific Highway, make sure you stop off for a night at the Big 4 Holiday Park in beautiful Bonny Hills right on the beach.  I will be in residence there performing every monday evening, so make it a part of your travel plans and pop in and say g'day!

BACKYARD BLURB MAY, 2016

If you're loading up the van or motor home and you're planning your migration north during winter, make sure you pop into beautiful Bonny Hills on the mid north coast of NSW for a night or two on your travels.  The Big 4 Holiday Park at Rainbow Beach have invited me to perform there every monday evening at happy hour.  It's a fantastic park right on the beach and Mish and Dave really know how to look after you.  We have a great old time.

As Autumn is upon us (not that you'd know), things are slowing down for winter.  I'll be hanging around the north coast this month and catching up with a bit of writing.  Last year I started writing a book about my life, which I thought would be more the size of a comic rather than a book.  But once I got started, the words and memories flowed as fast as I could type them.  It could end up the size of an encyclopaedia...and I'm only up to 1995!  (I think I need an editor).

Catch you along the road !
