The boys in polyester, The Inadequates, wooed audiences and Judges alike during the 2019 Stanthorpe Busking Championships last Saturday 23 March.
The Inadequates perform during the finals concert in the Alley Arcade and not only won the Open Championship but were also named Best Band, sponsored by Sam’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetables, and they won the People’s Choice Award.
The trio will now go on to compete in the finals of the Australian National Busking Championships in Cooma in November.
