“It’s about the only thing I haven’t done in Country Music” says Pooley, “And I’ve Always dreamed about touring right around this magnificent country that we live in. I’ve heard so many wonderful stories about the people and the places and now to be able to experience it first-hand will be a real thrill!”
Reg and his wife of 42 years, Dot, will join forces with Singer / Songwriter Keith Jamieson and his guitar pickin’ chicken side-kick Alisha Smith for the 4 month journey of fun, music and madness. The caravan convoy will head North in July, Head West in August, East in September taking in SA, VIC & Tassie and then North again in October finishing at the Widgee Muster on the last weekend. “Caravan Parks, Clubs, Pubs and Missions are all on the agenda” said Reg, “So LOOK OUT AUSTRALIA, HERE WE COME!!!!”
The last couple of years have been gigantic for Reg……he’s had a fine top-selling album called ‘For The Love Of My Country’, He’s been elevated to the Roll Of Renown (only the 33rd person to achieve this honour), he was awarded the coveted O.A.M for his services to Country Music and the Community, and he’s had the added excitement of becoming a Grandfather for the first time. Ryder Nikolai has rapidly become the light of his life.
Reg is currently on the look-out for some new songs for an album to be recorded next year some time. Also mooted in 2008 is a 3 week tour to the states with his old mates Terry Gordon and Owen Blundell and a bunch of other Aussie tourists (Talk about terrorists eh!) Reg and Dot and Keith & Alisha look forward to catching up with new and old friends around Australia in the eagerly awaited touring schedule.
