It's Back!

Post by howthewestwaswon on Tue May 14, 2013 3:19 pm

For those of you that don't know, when I resided in Adelaide, I was a musician with a few bands around town. One did pub covers, one did original songs (that got airplay on Triple JJJ - exciting stuff!) and another did a couple of shows as a Neil & Tim Finn tribute act, playing songs from Split Enz to Crowded House to solo stuff and brotherly stuff. The highlight of this tribute act was its final show, playing at a packed Grace Emily Hotel (wall to wall people you could not move) with other bands from around Australia joining in on the festivities.

Anyway, after 3 years on the shelf, the tribute show is resurrecting itself here in Tasmania. I'm starting with a few private parties around town, with a view to start hitting the pubs and clubs along Northern Tasmania by the end of the year. I've been rehearsing for months and feel I'm starting to sound good again - I haven't made any of those wacky costumes that graced the stage just yet!

Sorry, I'm a little excited about this I just had to share it. Very Happy

I'm based out near Burnie at the moment. Depending on its success, I want to head into Launceston from time to time.

I'll keep you posted as we succeed or fail...

Well the first gig went really well last night. All the feedback that we received from people was really good. I think people enjoyed the Crowded House set a little better than the Split Enz stuff, but we certainly had people singing and dancing along during both sets.

Just to give you our set list:
Shark Attack
Poor Boy
Nobody Takes Me Seriously
Message To My Girl
Stuff N Nonsense
Six Months In A Leaky Boat
Charlie
Without A Doubt
My Mistake
I See Red
I Got You

-INTERMISSION-

Weather With You
Fall At Your Feet
Locked Out
Into Temptation
It's Only Natural
Distant Sun
Something So Strong
Better Be Home Soon
The Climber
Anytime
Persuasion
Don't Dream It's Over

Looking forward to the next gig! Very Happy
