Sheppard Love Sassy Sues!

Sheppard at the Soundshell

Over 5,000 Kalgoorlie Boulder residents and visitors packed a picnic basket and made the pilgrimage to Centennial Park last Saturday to catch the third installment of the Sunset at the Soundshell series for 2016 and the much anticipated performance from the Brisbane (and a little bit Kalgoorlie) band Sheppard, supported by Kalgoorlie’s own Joshua David.

The crowd were treated to worldwide favourites, Geronimo and Let Me Down Easy as well as an original piece “I’m Sorry” performed for the first time ever to their outback audience. If you weren’t a part of the mosh pit, along with Sheppard’s own grandmother Zora Pugl, then you were bopping your body and clapping your hands at the back.

?Awww you're all a bit cute Kalgoorlie!Collaborate effort from the audience at Sheppard tonight. Big thanks to the City of Kalgoorlie Boulder for making tonight possible.

We love live music in the Goldfields and the popularity of past City of Kalgoorlie Boulder run Sunset at the Soundshell events are nothing to sniff at but there’s something about that family connection, that fierce Kalgoorlie pride and support of others who are doing well that brought out such an appreciative and enthusiastic crowd.

And what is the Kalgoorlie connection?
Three of Sheppard’s band members are the nieces and nephew of our friend Suzanne Pugl, also known as Sassy Sue, of Sassy Sues Designer Vintage on Hannan Street! See below to follow the antics of Emma, Amy and George Sheppard when they came to town to entertain us, play tourist and of course catch up with family.

Superfreakin' at Sassy Sue's today. #kalgoorlie #westernaustralia #sheppard #geronimo #saygeronimo

Humans of Kalgoorlie-Boulder style exhibition – tell us what you love!

The team at We♥KB are on the look out for some cheery local Kalgoorlieans to share with us what it is that they love about living in Kalgoorlie Boulder.

It’s a little bit Humans of Kalgoorlie Boulder mixed with the typical quirky We♥KB style and at the end of this project we’ll be displaying all of your photo testimonials at an exhibition during the annual arts & culture ‘Heart of Gold’ Festival in May.

So, what do you love?

Is the friends you’ve made? And that busy social calendar of ours?

We’re coming up ball season in our red dirt outback city, we can’t wait to see how everybody glams up!

A busy social calendar, long shifts and a crazy family life sometimes requires a little down time. We♥KB and thousands of contributors to Instagram and Facebook are big fans of taking some ‘me’ time and watching the sun go down.

Big Bucket for your Bucket List

Is this Kalgoorlie’s favourite photo backdrop?

Just like Coff’s Harbour in New South Wales has got the Big Banana and the small Queensland town of Maryborough is recognisable by the oversized statue of the infamous Bush Ranger Ned Kelly, Kalgoorlie Boulder is fast becoming known as the place with the Big Bucket.

On Instagram alone we have found dozens of pics showing visitors and locals standing beside, inside , yoga posing on and jumping from the bright yellow Komatsu PC8000 bucket at the Super Pit Lookout.

Have you got a Big Bucket pic ticked off your bucket list? Share it with us on Facebook or Instagram or by using #welovekb
