With both the RPJ Band and Tenors of Rock performing a wide range of hits covering multiple genres, we’re sure they will get the crowd rocking. We wanted to ensure 2015’s music offering would appeal to everyone, something we feel this line up will achieve.”

We’re sure the balance of Tenors of Rock with the might of their repertoire and the fantastic party rock night planned with the RPJ Band will complement the land, air and water activity perfectly.”
