Matterhorn Entertainment Listings

Thank you for all in attendance on Wednesday night at the fourth Birthday, there was a fair bit of helium madness, bum rushing, slip sliding, garden dancing, drink spilling, band jamming and extreme lay-backing, so thanks to all who made it a most memorable night.

National Radio fans would have heard Jonathan Crayford on Kim Hill last week talking about acid jazz, drugs and jamming and it seems our great mate and Matterhorn supporter Deb Morris has got herself in a bit of trouble being honest about wanting to smoke a joint after work, if you see her give her your big ups for being honest and representing the squillions of responsible recreational smokers out there!

And for those of you who missed the birthday, you'll be pleased to know we kept the music loud and pumping right through till the final noise complaint at 3am. Also music lovers can buy a copy of Fat Freddys Live at The Matterhorn from 106 Cuba Mall, this is a limited release so be quick!
