Melbourne based musician and talented multi-instrumentalist Sam Pollard, played a gig at Coco Cubano in Darlinghurst, Sydney last night as the first show of the “World of Difference” tour.
The one hour set featured Sam singing and playing a string of his original songs on both guitar and piano. The gig was even being streamed live to Facebook for the world to see and was filmed as part of his new documentary.
The documentary features local communities across the country and the unique and interesting facets of small town Australia. The show also features Sam and his cycling companions travelling across Australia by bicycle. They rode from Melbourne to Sydney before his latest gig and today, the 10th November, they are travelling 107 km to Katoomba to capture some of Australia’s most beautiful landscape.
The tour which will be held up until 31st December, 2012, is also be raising money for Reclink Australia. They are a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide sporting, social, health and arts activities to disadvantaged and isolated Australians.

The drinks were flowing all night and everyone loved the atmosphere of the venue. Thanks to Coco Cobano for hosting the event! The venue staff certainly contributed to the overall success of the evening.
