Popular Narrogin band ‘Dilate’ provided the entertainment for
the night, with Russell Gooley as the front man. Many will
remember Russell from the popular television series “X-Factor”
where Russell’s singing talent was recognised and he gained
2nd place. Russell was definitely a crowd pleaser and his antics
up on the stage gave the band heaps of stage presence and
engaged the crowd throughout their sets, consisting of both
covers and original pieces. - interact


Russell had one song that was written by Bryan Adams and had that playing on local am radio (radio west) the song was called No - One



We come from a town of 4000 people in Western Australia, we were together 3 months then the singer dexided to try out for a tv show called the X Factor,(along the same lines as "idol" bascially with some differences) anyway he was a grand finalist but didn't come away with the big one, but not bad. What he did come away with was working closely with people like John Reid ( manager to Elton John, Queen etc) Kate Cebrano, Mark Holden(yawn). Since the show though we went from strength to strength doing rock covers and getting gigs like Rally Australia and singing the national anthem in front of 40000 people. Most recently we have been on a gig break to write songs and have come up with not really a different sound but more of a unique sound which when you hear the songs you know it's Dilate.
