July News

Jim Conway’s Big Wheel had a very successful South Coast tour in May of this year. While we were in Tarthra, the ABC’s Bill Brown shot videos of some of our songs as we played at the Tathra Hotel. So far there are two of our songs on the ABC local site. Bill has done a great job. You can find them here:
Running Away With The Blues: featuring Don on vocals, keys and songwriting
Just So featuring Jess Green vocals, guitar and songwriting

Dr. Don’s Double Dose, myself and Rob Grosser, will return this month to the Tarthra Hotel and The Quarterdeck Narooma and Sebel Kiama. Details below. If you are on holidays or live on the South Coast, please come along to one of the shows.

The Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band Re-ignited, another outfit I’m proud to be a part of, performed three great shows at the Ormond Hall in Melbourne in June. The shows were all full houses with some very entertaining supports including The Beards who are worth checking out, and some great stand up acts. Lynne Cazaly did a great Julia Gillard performance. More of the original Matchbox members sat in on some of the songs making the nights even more special.
Look out for a special performance by this band next Thursday 6pm, at Parramatta Town Hall with some ice skating to the Matchbox music!

I enjoyed playing piano on a new CD recently by the great country vocalist Clelia Adams. Look out for it in the shops soon.

I hope to see you at one of the gigs and welcome to the new additions to my News and Gigs email list.
