Rocky musician Busby set to tie knot in three-day music gig

A WEDDING is always a reason to celebrate, but for Tom Busby one day wasn't enough.

The local musician is sticking around at the Mercure Capricorn Resort for three days after his wedding to put on some poolside entertainment as part of Busby Marou.

Tom is returning to the Capricorn Coast to marry his fiancée Huma Panjwani in a private ceremony on April 3.

Busby Marou will play three poolside casual concerts from Friday, April 4 to Sunday, April 6 alongside other musicians.

He said he can't wait to get back to the coast and celebrate his wedding with everyone.

"I'm looking forward to coming home for a week to get married and celebrate with family and friends," he said.

"My fiancée Huma is from the United States and her family hasn't seen the band play.

"We thought that it would be a great opportunity for them to see us perform and also celebrate with family, friends and the people of the Capricorn Coast."

Tom and his band partner Jeremy Marou are currently touring with Kasey Chambers.

"It has been an extremely busy year and we have been touring non-stop throughout Australia," he said.

"The next 12 months are busy with lots of concerts including us supporting James Blunt later in the year."

Mercure Capricorn Resort general manager Jonathan Dean said the team was buzzing with excitement about the wedding.

"We are so grateful to both Thomas and his fiancée for being so generous with their time to our local community."

Capricorn Enterprise CEO Mary Carroll said their incredible passion for their home and their generosity of spirit is one of the things they love about Busby Marou.
