High Kicks and Hi-Jinks Always on the Kalgoorlie Entertainment Bill

THE ROADHOUSE HISTORY FILES: Diggers & Dealers always brings the best out of Kalgoorlie, providing the visiting throng with a wealth of entertainment possibilities.

Judging by this week’s missive from the early pages of the City’s newspaper, perhaps the forums’ entertainment committee may have to rethink who they bring up to headline the Gala Dinner this year.

Kalgoorlie Miner: September 16 1895

Hansen’s Concert Company gave a performance in the dining room at the Club Hotel on Saturday evening to a large audience.

The programme commenced with an overture by the orchestra, and then followed a chorus, by the company, and songs by Messrs Cahill, Jenkins, Bracy, Martin and Fletcher, the last named possessing a beautiful tenor voice.

Eddie Simpson contributed some of his well-known Coster songs, and was deservedly encored whilst Albert Whelan’s facial contortions were most amusing.

In the second part of the programme amongst the selections were a clog dance by W. Jenkins, and some skilful dancing and high kicking by Messrs Martin and Moran.

rollicking farce entitled ‘Shaving made easy,’ concluded the programme.

The company are to perform again at Hannans in a fortnight’s time.
