Behind every singer there’s a band. If every band member that has ever backed up Colin Cook, or appeared on the same gig, bought a ticket to the Benefit Gig, it would be sold out. “Adele, (Colin’s wife), I’ve been in the business for over 55 years and I’ve never ever heard a bad word about Col. That puts him in rare company. You can be very, very proud of your husband” Quote from Laurie Arthur. If there was ever a time or reason to ‘get behind’ Col and his family, it’s now! If you’re interested in performing in the Big Jam, please contact Laurie Arthur on 9399 8019 (no ticket bookings via phone)
