    Live Music - OK Charlie
    OK Charlie is one of Victoria's go-to party bands. Retro classics, the newest pop hits, even some of that strange noise the younger generation wants to call music. They've got it all. Something to get you dancing, singing-a-long, or if you're not so "rhythmically inclined," laughing and having a good time with friends is also permitted.
