SURF N’ TURF - A BENEFIT FOR WAYNE GOODWIN


Sunday 11th November – The Mona Vale Hotel
5 – 9pm


Surf n’ Turf is a benefit performance for Wayne Goodwin, violinist/composer and multi-instrumentalist (piano, guitar, mandolin, viola, saxophone and drums). Wayne is a well loved stalwart of the Australian music scene - and has many friends in the ad industry (including Lynchy, he played for free at his 40th birthday). Featuring musical acts from Surf to Rock-a-Billy to Country music including; Ebb Tide & The Shorebreakers (members from Midnight Oil - Jim Moginie, Rob Hirst & Martin Rotsey in their alter ego surf band featuring Wayne Goodwin), members of The Atlantics (Peter Hood, Martin Cilia and Michael Smith), Cocky and Pompous (Paul McDermott and Paul Livingston a.k.a Flacco from ABC’s Sideshow), Becky Cole, Anne Kirkpatrick, Cam & Stuie, The Riptides (Mark Callaghan of GANGajang, Chris Bailey and Graham "Buzz" Bidstrup from the original Angels & GANGajang) and other guest musicians. … Plus an auction for some exciting items.
Wayne was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma in June of this year and after three months of chemotherapy is currently in remission from the blood cancer. With a little help from his friends, this fund raising event will help Wayne get back on his feet after time off work and provide him with some relief from mounting financial obligations. The Leukaemia Foundation is also a beneficiary of the benefit as this organisation has been extremely supportive through Goodwin’s challenging ordeal. A representative from the Foundation will be on hand at the event to highlight awareness of their work and to provide information about Non-Hodgkins lymphoma and other blood cancers.
Born of an Australian mother, Wayne first came to Australia on tour from Hollywood, California with Emmylou Harris twenty-three years ago and returned the following year to stay, performing with the newly reformed band Crossfire and to break into the film industry as a composer. His credits as a violinist list the who’s who of music including Midnight Oil, INXS, Jenny Morris, Sting, Bob Dylan, Linda Ronstadt, Tony Bennett, ELO, Renee Geyer, Ross Wilson, The Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, The Bolshoi Ballet, Gene Pitney, Dolly Parton, Dragon, Emmylou Harris, Jimmy Little, Michelle Shocked, Anne Kirkpatrick, Bread, Crosby, Stills and Nash (Wayne was awarded a platinum album for his violin solo on their hit single Wasted in the Way) and more…

It is with deep regret I wish to announce Wayne now has the disease in his spinal cord and is in Palliative Care at Sydney's Royal North Shore. Graham Nash personally paid him a visit and took him to the CSY concert on Dec 14th, this was an amazing thing however Wayne cried as he will probably never play again.
Please send him your love.
regards
Ray Falzon

Just met Wayne in rehab hospital yesterday. He dropped in when he heard me playing uke to my aunt in the room next door. What a polite, modest gentleman. We had a bit of a chat and he told me he's got a keyboard in his room and is looking forward to more composing and his own band. Of course I offered my services immediately.
Looking forward to seeing you next week, Wayne.
Regards,
Mark Allerton

My brother, Howard, used to play in various bands with Wayne back in the early 1970s in Santa Cruz, CA. I remember you well, Wayne! We're all wishing you strength during this difficult challenge. Warm wishes and much healing to you, Carol Sveilich, www.writefaceforward.com
