New time and date for Finalists and Favourites

Well it’s been a few funny old days! Illnesses, a shoulder injury, a fall, a last minute job commitment and even flooding have knocked our seniors for a sixer! So rather than let them miss out we have decided to reschedule this event. In order to give them time to make full recoveries and get back into form we will be staging the show still at the same venue but in a special morning concert.
So mark the date down now, we’d love to see you.
If you already have tickets to the original show, you will be contacted by the box office.

Fabulous Finale

Over 400 people came to be entertained and inspired by 12 talented seniors ranging in age from 59 to 83. A variety of songs from Broadway to pop and opera were performed as well as an exotic belly dance.
The Grand Finale performers
83 year old Bill Watson from Regents Park said he was “Happier than a Cheshire cat” to come in third place. Bill, is deaf in his left ear and only has 15% hearing in his right ear. He taught himself to play guitar and his fun and playful singing voice had him named Logan’s Satchmo.
Bill Watson
Dale Beazley from Beenleigh stepped out of the cabin of his Bobcat and onto the stage of the Logan Entertainment Centre. Dale’s voice, likened to a cross between Englebert Humperdink and Tom Jones, captivated the entire audience with his version of “You Raise Me Up”. When asked whether he sings while excavated Dale said he did but his work mates told him to shut up!
Dale Beazley
This years Logan Senior Superstar was Jackie Anderson 66 from Park Ridge. Jackie battled breast cancer earlier in the year and has bounced back by entering the series. She did not sing for 30 years and began to sing again after joining a singing group at her village. The group were finalists last year but were unable to enter due to people being away on holidays. She decided to enter by herself this year. Her version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” had a majority of the audience on their feet clapping for more.
Jackie Anderson
Because the talent was so exceptionally high, a special Senior Superstar Showcase featuring entrants from the series will be staged in early 2014 at Beenleigh. Stay tunes for further details.
Special thanks to all our supporters including Logan City Council, Logan Entertainment Centre, Cross Country Tours and Arts Queensland for ensuring the success of the series.

Forget X factor with Logan’s Dami Im.
The Logan Seniors have got what it takes and more!!
The second Logan Seniors Superstar had the audience of 150 and the judges absolutely amazed by the high standard of talent that the seniors have to offer. The afternoon was full of variety as 12 acts showed that talent is ageless.
The talent is of such a high standard that it was almost impossible to pick 3 finalists. So close, that a tie occurred. Our first senior to go through to the grand finale was first time entrant Dale Beazley with a charismatic rendition of “Teach Me Tonight”. Tying was Adrian Borsboom who sung a Spandau Ballet song about the Irish conflict in the 80’s called “Through the Barricade” with Jackie Anderson who captivated the audience with her stirring rendition of “Ave Maria”. Our third performer was Logan’s own Satchmo, Bill Watson who sung and accompanied himself on guitar to “Who’s Sorry Now”. Bill is a second time finalist and his unique style shown for audience and judges alike.
The contestants that were chosen through the People’s Choice vote were Glenys Anderson who sung the Bette Midler classic “The Rose” and David Rigg who proved Elvis was in the building with his version of “Don’t be Cruel”.
These 6 seniors will join last weeks 6 acts for an amazing Grand Finale at the Logan Entertainment Centre.
Tickets are already selling fast so book now.

Delights at Diggers

Over 150 people attended the first Senior Superstar event for 2013 at the Logan Diggers Club.
12 talented performers provided a great afternoon of entertainment. The show had a range of singers from opera to show tunes, rock n roll, jazz and even an Elvis classic. We also had a poet and bellydancer.

Dawn Moore

Lloyd Te Kani
Three acts chosen by the judges to perform at the Grand Finale were:
Dawn Moore who wooed the audience with her version of the song Broadway Baby.
Helen Lipscombe not only dazzled, but showed some cheeky moves with her Bellydance.
First time entrant Lloyd Te Kani captivated the audience with his verson of the Lionel Ritchie hit “Still”.
Helen Lipscombe
The audience were able to vote for 2 of their favourite acts in the People’s Choice. Voting was very close, so close, that we had a tie for the second place. This resulted with 3 acts voted by the audience going through to the Grand Finale. The first to go through was Lois Govan who sung “Climb Every Mountain”. Lois wanted to enter last year’s series but had to withdraw due to the flu. This year with no illness she proved to be a crowd favourite. Second place was a tie with Laurence Denoff who won last year’s People’s Choice as well and secured a spot this year by singing “Mona Lisa”. Hal Taylor who sung the Elvis classic “The Wonder of You” tied with Laurence.

The next event is shaping up to be just as big with ballroom dancers, singers and more.
