HOPING 2017 HAS STARTED WELL
I apologise for my tardiness in not updating my website. It has a been a very hectic year.
Two Great Friends
Firstly I want to wish my great friend Bruce McKenzie a speedy recovery after his recent surgery. Bruce has been a great support, not only with just my music, but with everything in my life. It’ll be great to have him back gigging with me again.
Nic Pitman, another great friend, whom I mentioned was Ill recently also. We have had the good news he is now in a good recovery position. Nic and Bruce have been a part of my band for over 15 years, and I really appreciate the support they have given me and the awesome friendship we have.
The Southern Country Music club in Adelaide.
I would like to say what a great time we had down at the SCMC. I’d like to thank Tim Windsor for coming and playing Pedal Steel with us. Tim also jumped up on the bass when it was required. Great to meet Tim and play alongside him. I’d also like to thank Graham, Sandy and the crew for making us feel most welcome. There was a full house crowd and they didn’t stop dancing all afternoon. Thank you SCMC, I hope to get back there sometime soon.
Mildura Country Music Festival.
Another wonderful year of music and making new friends. This year was a little different with me having close to a whole new band for the Festival. I take my hat off to these fellas in the band. They’d never met before and we were in a Cabin at the Calder Caravan Park and we didn’t have one stoush. As a matter of fact by the end of it all we’ve become great mates. Kevin Bergen (Pedal Steel). Ron Mahony (Drums) and Greg Franks (Bass guitar) were the line up. I appreciate the professionalism and mateship, it was a whole lot of fun. The festival was another successful one. We had packed out shows where ever we went. It was a great mix of music, from being privileged to play the Stan Coster tribute to the other tribute shows, where we showcased, Don Williams, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakum, Roy Orbison and even Dusty Springfield.
Huge Thanks to John Arnold for pulling this wonderful festival together once again. I can’t wait to get back next year and do it all over again.
Moved back to Western Australia
Another big reason the year has been hectic, is that my family and I have moved back to Western Australia. We are now in the Pilbara town of Karratha. So a long way from most, but a pleasant change. So if you are over in the North West of WA, look me up and say gday.
Well I’ll get in now and wish all a Merry Xmas and all the best for 2018. I know I may not have a chance to update my website before then. Until next time,
Keep safe on the Track
