JCB Dancing Diggers and GT V8 Backhoe will perform at this year’s Deniliquin Ute Muster.TYLA HARRINGTON July 15, 2014 3:25am
Not only will it be a first for the Deniliquin Ute Muster, it will also be a first for Australia when the United Kingdom’s famous JCB Dancing Diggers and GT V8 Backhoe perform at this year’s muster.
The muster team had a mini JCB digger on show at the Cressy St Kiosk on Friday and Saturday in promotion of the Youtube sensations.
Ute Muster marketing and media officer Erica Laing said based on the online interest, the Dancing Diggers are sure to be a popular attraction.
‘‘The diggers are driven by six special drivers,’’ she said.
‘‘Together they do synchronised dance moves.
‘‘GT V8 Backhoe is just as popular and can do anything from shooting out flames to wheel stands.
‘‘Both the diggers and backhoe will be doing three shows each day of the festival. It will be amazing to experience the shows live.
‘‘We expect the show will attract an agricultural crowd but really it’s for all interests and ages.’’
Meredith and Jamie Tasker from Deniliquin’s Taskers Garage provided the JCB Digger that was on show on Friday.
This year’s Ute Muster will be held on Friday, October 3 and Saturday, October 4. For more information phone the muster headquarters on 5881
