Detour started life in 2007 jaming at Nelson Bay Golf Club with Mal Norton & occasionally Terry Hall & John Chesworth, progressing to Steel City Country Music Club at Lake Macquarie.Our first public outing was the Bluewater Country Music Festival 2009 at Nelson Bay, Steve,Cheso,Ken & Joanne Foote & myself,where we finished 3rd.
In 2009 we were joined by Robyn,Noel, Dick & Terry. We jammed at Steve’s & just for fun in 2010
we went to Tamworth,where we finished in the Top 10 of the buskers competition. Also in 2010 we won the “Bluewater Festival” & again in 2011 at Tamworth finishing in the “TOP 10”.
