This year marks the fourth since the accident that injured other members of popular local band Good Corn liquor and claimed the life of singer Stu McKenzie.
And an open invitation has been extended, as always, to the annual tribute concert held in McKenzie's honour, which will be on Sunday from noon to 5pm.
The band and local muso Steve McCauley have organised the concert, which will feature Good Corn Liquor members Nick Wright, Ben Murphy and Ben McCauley; sets and backing by band Streamline; "raunchy rock 'n' roll" by Jess Holland; country rocker Sarah Byrnes; Queen of Honky Tonk Wanita; and group Ali, Em and Steve laying some acoustic grooves.
"It's going to be a low-key, casual affair with music all afternoon," Steve McCauley said.
"It's just an afternoon for everyone to raise a glass in memory of a wonderful mate and a much-loved band that brought a lot of pleasure to anyone who heard them.
"We hope that anyone who enjoyed the boys' music will turn up, and would like to extend an open invitation to any local musicians who would like to come and play a song or two."
In their brief career, Good Corn Liquor recorded two original EPs and had played across the east coast from Newcastle to Darwin.
The Gunnedah and Boggabri musicians blended bluegrass, rockabilly and rock 'n' roll into their own unique sound.
The event on Sunday will also feature a jumping castle for the kids, $5 schooners from noon to 2pm, free nibblies and the pub bistro open from 5.30pm to 8.30pm.
