Entertainment

Explosive weekend of entertainment starts with Bombs Away

THIS weekend is a big one with Sneaky Sound System at the Sawtell RSL and Bombs Away at the Planto - both will pile on the party Friday night.

Also on Friday, the Hoey Moey has a change of pace with Australian music legend Renee Geyer and guests.

Then, on Saturday, one-man band Nathan Kaye will be bringing his trademark style to the Hoey Moey.

Continuing with the Hoey Moey, they are bringing West African sounds to Coffs on Sunday with Afro Moses.

Back to Saturday night ... it will be the big one for everyone, with the Earth Frequency launch party.

It will feature Freq Nasty and supports including Coffs Coast boogie monk Joelism.

The party will launch the 2013 festival of the same name and organisers will be giving away tickets to the event.

The Coffs Harbour Musical Comedy Company's Beauty & The Beast continues, bringing with it shows Disney fans will sing - or lip sync - the words to all weekend.

With so much on, the hardest thing you'll have to do this weekend is choose where to be.
