Farewell Cafe Dalor March 2012
Cafe Dalor closed for business early March 2012

It's a wrap!

The closure of Cafe Dalor earlier in March brings to an end the successful Cafe Dalor Open Mic Fridays held for the year March 2011 - March 2012

Battlefield Band at The Camelot Lounge (left). The regular gig developed into a great community event and this is a good opporrtunity to give thanks to all involved and to those who contributed their time & resources to make it happen. A mix of folk, songwriter & acoustic cafe performance styles from various ages & backgrounds brought together an easy going audience with entertainment, good food and hospitality with full publicity covering the events. Some of the friendships made could be easily seen at those attending (and dancing at) the final re-located Battlefield Band Gig at The Camelot Lounge Sydney on March 14th 2012.
