I have been playing the Hotel circuit for many years, I really enjoy it. These days I am based out of Mission Beach I quite like the laid back lifestyle of this area, it agrees with me.
Mission Beach is roughly the half way point between Cairns and Townsville so it opens up more terrain for me to cover as a professional solo singer guitarist. My area is from Pt Douglas to Townsville and all points in between.
The requirements of hotels vary a bit some want me to be the life of the party, while others require a bit more of a laid back approach and blend in with the ambiance. Either way it doesn't really matter to me I can quite easily do both.
Currently I play regularly at the Central Hotel in Pt Douglas. The Palm Cove Tavern, The Sea Temple - Palm Cove and The Chill Cafe - Palm Cove. Moving further south I play at the Mission Beach Tavern, Zenbah - Mission Beach. The Garage Bar and Grill - Mission Beach. The Sunset Bar - Dunk Island and the Marine Hotel - Cardwell.
Doin it tough at the Sunset Bar - Dunk Island
