Family takes music to the streets

JIMMY and Tracy have taken what they love doing at home out into the streets for the people of the Clarence Valley to enjoy.

Their six youngest children Lynette, Heavenly, Octavia, Gloria, Xanthi and one-year-old Raymond, who joins his dad as the only males in the family of 10, are spending a couple of days in Yamba, busking out some ‘soft rock’ classics for the passers by.

“The response has been great here,” Jimmy said.

“People have sat down and listened for a while and we’ve made just about enough to cover our camp accommodation,” he said.

The musical family has only taken their talent to the streets in the last two years. They have been attracting a lot of media attention.

“We featured on ABC television when we were filmed at the Coffs Harbour International Buskers Festival last year,” Jimmy said.

The family has also been asked to appear on Yarramundi Kid.
