FABIAN Webb was over the moon with the turnout to the first Widgee Thornside Country Music Muster, so much so he is ready to do it all again next year.

Mr Webb, speaking on behalf of the Widgee Country Music Club, said everything went like clockwork for the nearly 3000 country fans who attended his Thornside property over the weekend.

He said the club was still doing its final calculations but the event looked like making a profit or at least breaking even.

"It was a very successful weekend," Mr Webb said.

"The weather was beautiful, although it got a bit chilly late at night, but overall the club and I are very happy with the result.

"The general consensus of the people that came was they were very happy with the whole thing."

He said they were pleased with the attendance saying they got their fair share of patrons despite a lot of other events being on the same weekend.

"It went better than I thought, it was an exceptional weekend."

Mr Webb also gave high praise to the entertainers on show. He said Tania Kernaghan was fantastic and Graeme Connors' show, to close the festival, was outstanding.

"It was a magic on-stage presentation by Graeme," he said. "It was excellent and he was very complimentary of the set-up."

The Webb Brothers also made an appearance on the main stage despite Marius, the third member of the trio, being unable to play due to health concerns.

"I think the people enjoyed the mix of local talent and country stars," Mr Webb said.

He thanked all the sponsors who helped make the event a success.

"We owe a lot to sponsors like John Cochrane from Gympie Regional Realty and others too numerous to mention."
