Saturday Night Entertainment


Join us as we celebrate the completion of Day 1 with a night of music under the stars provided by Sarenda, spit roast dinner and a warm, friendly vibe perfect to share with your fellow horse loving friends. This is a fantastic way to relax after a full day of shopping, learning and demonstrations and of course to recharge the batteries for Day 2!

With their high energy presence stirring up South East Queensland crowds since 2007, Sarenda are one of the most explosive Rock/Pop cover bands on the circuit. Renee's strong vocal range (from sweet acoustic melodies to full on rock tunes from female and male artists) enables Sarenda to provide venues with a unique appeal that the majority of male vocalist rock bands cannot supply. Sarenda blends a diverse cover range with 3 lead vocalists to provide a dance filled frenzy. Formed in 2007, Sarenda combines the stage presence and powerful vocal performance of Renee Lehmann, the tense aggression of Drummer/vocalist John Kelly, the rumbling grooves of bassist Neil Black and the sonic assault of lead guitarist/vocalist Dean Blackborough.

With QSEC's country-like atmosphere, free entertainment and the QSEC bar open this will provide the perfect opportunity to meet new friends and catch up with old ones, enjoy some fantastic food and let your ears be treated with the sounds of Sarenda.
