The joint will be jumping to the classic hits from both acts and latest songs from Col’s album Don’t Give Up, which showcased at the sold out concert during the Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2006.

You’ll be singing along with Col’s By Bye Baby, Livin’ Doll, Yes Sir, That’s My Baby, Oh Yeah Uh Huh, Heaven is My Woman’s Love, Sweet Dreams of You, Today’s Teardrops, You’re The One, Judy’s Born A Woman, Silver Wings and Golden Rings, Field of Stone, 4 Million 3 Thousand 221 Tears From Now, Mare, Mare, Mare, Hasta Manana and hot duets to bring the house down.

Col and Judy recorded and toured together from the outset and were ‘family’ to a national audience throughout Bandstand’s 14 year run on television. In constant demand, their solid musical partnership has continued and parallels successful solo careers.

Inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 1988, Col pioneered Australia’s presence on the American Billboard chart, was our first artist to have a #1 single nationally and 3 consecutive hit records, with no less than 7 songs in the Top 10.

He received his Golden Guitar at the 2nd CMA Awards in 1974 for Heaven Is My Woman’s Love and bestowed an Order of Australia in 1983 for Excellence in the Entertainment industry and his work with numerous charities.

Judy’s career began on the road with the Reg Lindsay Show and she has since shared the stage with Sir Harry Secombe, Rolf Harris, Dick Emery, Johnny Mathis and Howard Keel.

The inaugural recipient of the National Award in 1974 for Australian Female Entertainer with 2 concurrent Top 40 singles - Field of Stone & Mare, Mare, Mare, Judy was firmly established in Country with Silver Wings and Golden Rings in 1976.

She made international history in 1986 as the first foreign Female Performer to sign with the Republic of China Record Company and celebrated the release of an album in Beijing with a televised performance in Mandarin. Embraced as ‘Precious Gem’ in China, Judy has also recorded in Flemish, Italian and Japanese and followed a hit in that country with performance at elite venues.

Judy has represented Australia at 3 International Expositions and other credits extend to the UK and Scotland for the song Hasta Manana.

Col and Judy have contributed enormously to our cultural heritage and are driven by a passion for the music which has brought them accolades in abundance - 12 Mo Awards, 6 Logies & Col’s 2 ARIAs, Gold and Platinum albums and recognition from their respective charities.
Don’t miss your one chance to see these extraordinary entertainers in full flight.

An original guest when Brian Henderson’s Bandstand first appeared on our television sets, Col was a family member throughout the show’s 14 years on air.

His extensive back catalogue includes a string of other hit singles - Livin’ Doll, There Goes My Everything (on the charts for 54 weeks), Sweet Dreams of You, Today’s Teardrops and You’re The One.

Since the heady days of early Australian rock ‘n roll, Col Joye has made an enormous contribution to the Australian Music Industry and was one of the first to be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 1988 (along with Joan Sutherland, Johnny O’Keefe, Slim Dusty, Vanda & Young and AC/DC).

Col has a swag of other industry accolades including 2 ARIAS for Gold albums, Multi Gold and Platinum awards, 4 Mo awards (2 times Gold Mo), 3 Logies, 3 Variety Club Heart awards and he is one of our first 8 Golden Guitar recipients.

An original Australia Day Ambassador, Col was bestowed an Order of Australia in 1983 for Excellence in the Entertainment industry and his work with numerous charities.
