Please come along and make welcome, Athol Guy, who is a familiar face in the Australian entertainment scene because of his foundation and international success of the legendary Seekers.
Athol’s presentation is called From the coffee lounge to the Concert Hall which will show highlighted clips, songs and important life events from the groups beginnings to their international stardom and “sold out” international 50 th Farewell tour.
Unbeknown to most people are Athol’s other many talents and achievements.
He was a sports star in his school years.
Athol has many business achievements, but did you know that from 1969 – 1982 he was the Managing Director for Australia of the International affairs of Laker Airways UK who operated Skytrain and charter services between London, New York and Los Angeles.
In 1967 he was awarded Australia of the Year and later in 2014 The Order of Australia in recognition for his vast work in the community.
Between the years 1971- 1979 he also held three successive terms in the Victorian Parliament.
Alongside of these roles, from 1993 to 2014, he also orchestrated many reunion concerts with the Seekers.
Please come and make welcome this remarkable man who, in spite of his many demands, has made time to come and talk with our group. Come and relive your teenage years and reminisce the wonder of Australia’s most beloved Seekers.
