Blow Your Trumpets

Australia Day Eve at Geelong’s Eureka Hotel is an absolute corker, with Timmy Trumpet, Airwolf and Brynny among those set to perform. You would be doing well to find a busier DJ in the business than Timmy Trumpet. Juggling some 200 shows per year, including major festivals and international dates, Timmy barely finds the time to put up his feet. What’s more impressive, and quite interesting as well, is that at the age of 13 Timmy won Young Musician of the Year. He was then granted a full scholarship by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Within a couple of years of that, he was the solo lead trumpeter for the Australian All-Star Stage Band. * Note: Timmy also has a date at Bendigo’s Universal on February 24.
