Local personality and radio presenter Peter Smedley opened proceedings for the 2016 Australia Day concert in Mornington Park after the Main Street Mornington Australia Day Parade.

Pete was invited by event organisers to host the stage to introduce two amazing bands:

6:45pm – Jerome Smith & The Covering Addicts

8:00pm – Joe Camilleri & The Black Sorrows

Rockers, young and old, gathered around the stage to sing and dance to some of Joe Camilleri and his boys hit songs such as Harley & Rose, Shape I’m In and Hit & Run.

Joe, now 67, was the draw card for the evening, working the crowd with his onstage personality with his talented band, The Black Sorrows who proved that the 1970s band still can belt out favourite tunes of yesteryear. They are still true performing artists – the crowd loved them!

Pete also was a true professional hosting the event.

When Pete is not on stage or behind a microphone, he is head instructor of his business called Amphibian DoJos, a martial arts training school. His qualifications include a Fourth Degree Black Belt in Zen Do Kai Martial Arts.

He was a radio presenter on 98.7 RPP FM for many years delighting his listeners with The Breakfast Scoop. He is taking a brief sabbatical and will return to RPP FM in the near future.

This great Australia Day family fun event finished on a bang with a thrilling 10 minute fireworks display over Mornington Marina.
