Russell rocks in to Coffs

By JENI FAULKNER

RUSSELL Crowe was up to his old tricks again on Friday night, leaving the security of his Nana Glen property to pay a surprise visit to his local watering hole, the Coffs Hotel.

But talk of movies was not on the agenda for our Oscar winner ? this 'off-the-cuff' visit was for a jam session.

Rumours had been spreading that Crowe would be performing at the Coffs Hotel on Sunday afternoon, but everyone kept tight-lipped about the performance to keep the hungry media away.

Word spread quickly and by Crowe's third song, the mercury at the Coffs Hotel had certainly risen.

Wearing an unusual three-piece outfit Crowe displayed a vest embroidered with the words 'Cinderella Man'. He later revealed a blue T-shirt over the top of a long-sleeve shirt.

Crowe and friends joined regular performers O'Tallowood on the stage for a quick half-hour session, before retreating to the beer garden for a quiet ale.

There was no denying that the vibe proved contagious and, even though Crowe only stayed for a short time, the revellers partied on.
