Tamworth Hats Off Country Music Festival 2006
Simply Bushed @ Joe's Maguire’s Pub
By Anna Rose, Tamworth – for and on behalf of Helen’s Ragepage!!!
Simply Bushed on the new stage at Joe Maguire’s Pub, which has undergone a major
 facelift and has never looked better. The food’s great there too!

Don’t adjust your browsers, folks. These are photos taken at Joe Maguire’s Pub in Tamworth, under the new ownership of Oscar and Suzanne Lennon.
The historic Tamworth hotel has undergone a major transformation in the past few years and the back room was the last area of the hotel to get a facelift, with renovations completed just prior to Hats Off.
Oscar and Suzanne enlisted the talents of Campbelltown-based bush band, Simply Bushed, for their Hats Off agenda.
While Friday night didn’t set any crowd records, the joint was jumping on Saturday, with patrons having a ball listening to the great music of this fun outfit from Sydney’s western districts.
The majority of patrons at Joe’s on Saturday night were locals – fancy that – local yokels getting out enjoying country music! What next?
Several people in the audience were visitors for the Hats Off festival, coming from Tweed Heads and Newcastle and all points in between.
While Simply Bushed was in town, they took the opportunity to record a new album at John Lee’s Fat Track Studio, at Moore Creek.
You should be able to hear the results of that session at either the Gympie Muster, where the boys will be performing, or most definitely in Tamworth for January 2007, where they plan to launch the disc in style at Joe Maguire’s Pub.
