A few weeks ago we played for the first time at Yeronga Services Club, just down the road from home. What a lovely surprise to find such a gem of a club right on our doorstep!
From the friendly welcome at reception to the delicious buffet on offer, we were amazed at how much this little Club had to offer.
The food is superb with Saturday night’s all-you-can eat buffet on offer for just $20 per person. Lots of other food bargains to be found during the week and $10 Seniors meals really cap it off as the place to go for a value meal on the inner Southside of Brisbane. The crowds of people enjoying this really attests to the quality of the food and the great ambience.
If dancing and music is your thing, then relax in the lounge and enjoy a variety of bands on the stage.
I spent quite a while marvelling at the huge mortar out the front of the Club and thinking about all the soldiers who had fought so bravely in the wars that led to the creation of the Yeronga Services and Community Club.
Queensland’s premier duo, Body and Soul Duo, is playing again on March 16th, and for other dates, check out our gig guide. They play an amazing variety of tunes from RnB, Chill Grooves, Disco, Rock, Smooth Jazz and even the Top 10 hits!
Body and Soul Duo are excited to have been invited to play for a wedding scheduled at Dayboro’s beautifully created event space at the old Butter Factory. Now run by Entangled Events , the space is gorgeous and oozes charm and beauty.
Weddings are always a mixed bag of stress and excitement, but the team at Entangled events are experts at taking all the drama out of the big day and instead filling it with beautiful moments in their beautiful space.
I remember as a child visiting the old butter factory on a school excursion and seeing a huge mountain of yellow butter! How wonderful to be back there many decades later to perform for someone’s special day.
To make it even more interesting, this is our very first same-sex wedding. Times are indeed changing and the ladies involved are thrilled to be able to celebrate their nuptials in such delightful surroundings.
From their website: The Old Butter Factory sits humbly off the main street of the quaint Queensland town of Dayboro. She is a grand old lady, full of charm and character. There is something almost reverent about the building with its beautiful pared back walls forming a raw and earthy backdrop, the stunning led light windows and honest industrial fittings. You will understand when you visit; it is mesmerizing.
By day, stunning windows flood the space with natural light, it’s softness a beautiful compliment to the subject matter. And by night the magic is palpable. Soft mood lighting captures the charm of an intimate and enchanted atmosphere. It is very special and begs to be shared.
Body and Soul Duo are highly experienced function entertainers with over 700 songs at their disposal. It’s too easy to tailor a set to the couple’s needs on the day. We offer everything from intimate acoustic pre-dinner cocktail music right through to floor-filling dance tunes of all genres.
If you’re planning a wedding (or function) drop us a line to see how we can help make it even more amazing! Or give us a call on 0418 762 615.

Body and Soul Duo were one of the original bands that kick-started the now popular Sunday Sessions at Bulimba Golf Club, just across the river by free ferry service from Teneriffe. Along with a selection of other versatile artists, this delightful venue offers a great way to enjoy a Sunday afternoon with family and friends.
The chef-prepared menu offers a delicious range of snacks and main courses and parents can sit back and enjoy a relaxing afternoon catching up with friends while the kids have fun on the free jumping castle.
The al fresco clubhouse overlooks the beautiful greens and enjoys fresh sea-breezes on a hot summer afternoon.
In fact, why not play a round of 9 hole golf for just $20? A great way for novice golfers to get a taste for the game, and even kids can participate.
Opposite the grounds is Twisted Tricks Trapeze School and for just $10 you can experience the thrill of a swing on the trapeze under the watchful guidance of the highly experienced trapeze instructors.
With so much on offer, listening to the beautiful sounds of Body and Soul Duo is just another reason to celebrate Sundays at Bulimba Golf Club.
