TICKET holders to the Police Ball on Saturday, September 8 in Grafton can look forward to entertainment features on top of a beautiful meal.

The ball celebrates the 150th anniversary of NSW Police and will include an impressive display of police memorabilia.

Guests will be greeted with a complimentary drink and canapes while being entertained by the Grafton District Pipe Band.

Town crier Trevor Green will announce proceedings and Grafton duty officer Inspector Murray Gillett will be MC.

The talented and entertaining band The Four Flames will be looking to light up the dance floor when they perform after a top class dinner.

The event is a fundraiser for the newly established YouthWorx Grafton.

YouthWorx marketing manager John Shearer said the committee was dedicated to improving the social environment for Grafton youth by organising suitable, youth focused, diversified events and workshops.

YouthWorx will have a small auction on the night and is making a request for quality donations from local supporters and business houses.

Tickets are available from Buckleys Music, Grafton at $85 per person.

The Four Flames describe themselves as a covers band who perform easy listening and foot-stomping songs.

The band has a wide range of country rock songs, contemporary songs, and popular rock hits, and tailors the repertoire to suit the venue.

The band comprises four Grafton musicians with many years' experience including Brenda Cooper (lead vocals and keyboard), Shane Dixon (guitar and vocals), Graeme McLennan (drums) and Doug Wray (bass and backing vocals).

Aside from the new songs the band has learnt for their performance this weekend at the Criterion Theatre's '50s dance night (see story page 12), the Four Flames have an impressive list of other tunes to draw upon.

Covers include Dixie Chicks, Eagles, Shania Twain, Willie Nelson, Adele, Taylor Swift, AC/DC, Beach Boys, Beatles, Commitments, Daddy Cool, ELO, Fleetwood Mac, Jimmy Barnes, Joan Jett, John Cougar, Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Van Morrison and ZZ Top.
