Bee Gees performed on stage at Kyabram and Cohuna

The Bee Gees performed on stage at Kyabram and Cohuna on three separate occasions in the 1960s.
At each appearance on stage in Kyabram they were backed by the “Lonely Ones” band.
The three Gibb brothers – Barry and twins Robin and Maurice Gibb – were managed by their father Hugh Gibb.

The Bee Gees first performed at the Kyabram Town Hall dance on Friday, September 27, 1963, followed five months later by another performance on Friday, January 31, 1964.
The advertisement in the Kyabram Free Press read as follows – “LONELY ONES DANCE presents the fabulous BEE GEES - Stars of Sydney TV, Radio and Record – with the Mighty *LONELY ONES; *REBELETTES ; *RON EASDON; *JIMMY McINTYRE”

Their third and final appearance on stage in Kyabram was Friday, November 18, 1966, where they performed their hit at the time – “Spicks and Specks” – which had reached No. 4 on the Hit Parade.
They were again backed by the “Lonely Ones” with guest artist Glenys Hewitt.
The promoters of the dance were Hooper and Thompson of Cohuna.

The Bee Gees could only come down from Sydney for two nights – the Saturday night was at Cohuna.

They had changed their image to suit the times with long hair and “mod” clothes.
They sailed for England a week later on November 25, 1966, to start their famous career.

Meaning of Songs

THE MEANING OF SONGSCollaborator:Stephan Koenig ALONE (1997) BARRY GIBB: What the song's really about is that little child inside. It's that abstract feeling we all have that no matter how close or how many relatives we have or how many people around us we love, we still feel alone. There's an aloneness about all of us. That "How do I, why is it always end up alone?" Well, I'm not alone, but I might feel alone, that no one really thinks the way I do. I guess that's because everybody's unique in their own way. We all do feel the same way about most things, but why is it that nobody feels the same way I do about everything? So you're alone. You have that feeling sometimes.

MAURICE GIBB: Always with experimentation in mind, this was a fun time. The memories of this session will always be remembered. I loved the tuba and reverse cymbal effect.
