NYE @ Bateau Bay Bowlo!!!!!!!!!!

The new home of Live Music on the central coast CEDARS Bar and Grill at Erina have booked us solid from April through to September.  It's a classy joint and we are so looking forward to playing there. 

It's been a pretty busy Feb '15.  New venues for us as well as a bumper END OF SUMMER Weekend.

We'll be busy leading into Xmas '14 with Corporate events booked and the odd pub gig here and there. Big news is, we're at The Entrance for Australia Day 2015 just before the fireworks.

BACK in MARCH - Since playing the Australia Day Celebrations we're having a break until March when we'll be back in full swing. With bookings now starting to come in thick and fast for the whole year it might be the right time to organise your event before it's too late.

WorkCover Christmas Party

For a bunch of public servants, that crew at WorkCover really know how to drink, I mean party. Thanks again for having us and we'd love to party with you again. Once again, photo's of your Chrissy party should be up sometime soon.

Cath's 40th

We battled extreme circumstances including Wind, Rain, Small children wanting "The Wiggles", a muddy backyard, awesome views and a flashing party goer to get the entire party going. YOU GUYS ROCKED!!!!!!!. Sorry we couldn't stick around for the skinny dipping! I think after that gig we should be calling ourselves Wedding's, Party's and 40th's.

Halley & Mellowes Christmas Party

Big Thanks to Murray and Julie for having us play at the Halley and Mellowes "Beach" Christmas Party. Dressing up was fun and performing to an eager bunch of your employees was great.

The event didn't go without its share of disasters. I think I can speak for everyone in the band, it's the first time any of us have had a sound desk blow up at a gig. Some quick thinking and very sensible driving from "SUPER DRUMMER" and all round good guy ROB McKAY got us back on track with a new desk in under an hour.

I'm going to take this as a compliment cause I'm a positive kind of guy, but one of the smiling punters was reported as saying "You were so good, I'd have you play at my funeral". Thanks again for being such a top crew and HAPPY 21st ALICE!!!!!

Happy Birthday!

Congrats to Rob...who reached a very significant milestone last week. His party was awesome and unearthed a rising star. Jake "Babyface" Bracher put in a performance on Black Dog that would make Robert Plant hang up his leather pants for good! Check out his performance on You Tube here!

Latest News

Thanks to the Avoca pub for another awesome night and thanks to all the rowdy punters for making it so fun. Happy birthday to Michael, you did well dancin your heart out.

Hi Everyone! Well another year is almost over. Once again, we were stoked to be asked to play at various Xmas parties around the place...Westmead ICU, Wyong Hospital and the Workcover Social Club amongst them. We had a blast as usual.
