The Woombye Blues Club
After some time in 1988 the Spirits Blues Band decided to move from Stewarts Alexander Headland Hotel & looked for a venue where they could share the Blues with fellow Sunshine Coast Blues musicians.
As many band members had young families, it was decided that a Blues Club was the answer, where the group could stay local to the Sunshine Coast, but encourage all the touring acts to come up to the Sunshine Coast & perform at the Woombye Pub Blues Club.
Once the boys found Phil & Morris - the Woombye Pub hoteliers of the day; the venue was established for the commencement of The Woombye Pub Blues Club, which came into existence late in 1988.
The Woombye Pub Blues Club ran with the assistance of the Spirits' band members for over 5 years every Thursday night!
The Woombye Pub Blues Club also fostered so many local talented musicians that the local Blues scene on the Sunshine Coast has blossomed.
Indeed the Sunshine Coast Blues Club these days still has many members of the original Woombye Pub Blues Club looking after the local staging the first Thursday of every month at the Palmwoods Bowls Club - a great success that has become the icon for the local Blues Community today!
