Thursday, 16 December

Local three-piece sibling band The Buckleys will bring the Christmas spirit to this year’s Shopbaby’s Carols in the Heart and will perform their ‘Studio 54’ inspired take on the Christmas classic Boogie Woogie Santa Claus.

Fresh from a promotional tour that included an appearance on Channel Nine’s Today Show with Richard Wilkins and a virtual performance for the Adelaide Carols on 7Plus, The Buckleys will perform at this year’s Carols along with entertainment royalty and headliner Rhonda Burchmore.

Other local bands joining the line-up will include Pink Zinc and The Cath Simes Band, Megan Philips Dance Academy, as well as local singers and performers delivering the festive cheer.

2022 is gearing up to be The Buckleys best year yet with the rising stars performing their first headline show at Moonshiners in Tamworth during the 50th anniversary of the Country Music Festival on 20 January, they will also appear on major festival line-ups including Byron Bay’s iconic Bluesfest, the Mundi Mundi Bash and Savannah in the Round with international artist, Brad Paisley.

The Buckleys signed with Chris Murphy’s Petrol Records in 2019, the band earned the prestige of being the only other band on the label alongside INXS.Under Chris Murphy’s wise tutelage, the band has released five singles from their debut album, Daydream along with the Christmas track.

Band member Sarah Buckley said: “We wanted to give Christmas a whole new sound with this song and make it feel both nostalgic and fresh at the same time. It's been a tough year for everyone and as we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now, our goal is to get people feeling good and having a boogie with us to celebrate this wonderful time of year!” 

Shopbaby’s Carols in the Heart is a free event and will include face painting, jumping castles and a visit from Santa.

The night will conclude with an unforgettable laser spectacular courtesy of the Lismore Workers Club.

Shopbaby’s Carols in the Heart will be held on Saturday, 18 December from 5pm-8pm at Riverside Park.
