“Mellencamp has created an important body of work that has earned him both critical regard and an enormous audience. His songs document the joys and struggles of ordinary people seeking to make their way, and he has consistently brought the fresh air of common experience to the typically glamour-addled world of popular music.” Anthony DeCurtis Rolling Stone.
Join us at Newport Bowls Club next month as we pay tribute to the legendary man we know & love – with a night Mellencamp classics!

Make a weekend of it & join us down Gippsland way next month, in Wonthaggi…
Delve deep into Victoria’s mining history, explore a range of above-ground heritage sites and embark on scenic walks at Wonthaggi, a town built on the industry of ‘black gold’ – coal. Although Wonthaggi’s State Coal Mine has retired from duty, there’s still plenty to see and do. The mine’s above-ground heritage features are open to the public, with historic buildings, interpretive displays, walking trails, a picnic area and kiosk. Wonthaggi is also conveniently located in the midst of some of Bass Coast’s most impressive food destinations. Night time grab a drink & bite to eat at Picasso’s, open from 5.30pm before joining us at Saluto’s Bar & Restaurant from 8pm for a sensational night of US classics!
Saluto’s Bar & Restaurant
Buninyong lies at the foot of landmark Mt Buninyong, the old volcano that has signalled home to countless generations of local Wathaurung people and to the more recent settlers of the present township 11KM south of Ballarat in Victoria. Enclosed by farmlands and wooded ridges, Buninyong’s historic gold-era buildings and gardens give it a picturesque tranquillity and charm. The Ultimate American Rock Show may shake up that tranquility once Scarecrow come to town! Get ready to rock it out with us next month Buninyong…
