Verrierdale Full Moon Dance this Saturday 24 November
Hi moon dancers. This Saturday is shaping up to be a huge and very memorable night at Verrierdale. With a great line of bands, rain, hail or moonshine, its going to be hot!
The Dave Flower Band has been receiving rave reviews wherever they play,"the band, known for punching out funky tight sounds had the audience in a dance frenzy from the first beat" Maz Henley, Palm Creek Music Festival. Dave's band has a wealth of individual performance experience including the Toothfaeries, Lothlorien and the Houseprouds, which gives Dave the platform for a free spirited, magnetic show.
Possibly the most contemporary Celtic band in Australia, The Barleyshakes by equal measures regularly offend and inspire the traditional Irish players of the scene. This band is constantly touring the country at the best of Australian festivals and have worked extensively at international venues.
Their live shows are full of improvisation and at times wild energy but also have a sensitivity that is charming, memorable and endearing. Using fiddles, flute, vocals, whistle, guitar, drums, percussion and bass, their three studio albums to date have been described as groundbreaking. Their new live album is gathering momentum both in Australia and internationally.
Having worked since the early 90's the 'Shakes have emerged as a highly evolved organism, both cultured and wild. Give The Barleyshakes a line, they'll cut it to shreds and stick it back together again like a Picasso - brilliant for all the reasons you never thought could be.
Tommy Leonard - singer, interpreter, songwriter, guitarist - has built up a warm and appreciative following in his adopted Queensland home. Since migrating from the UK in 1993, he has thrown himself into the local folk scene, performing at successive Woodford Festivals, reviving the Maleny Folk Club, and performing at numerous festivals and community events. Tommy's performances have a warmth and charisma that's hard to describe in words. Simply a must see.
Psychedelia is a regular feature band at the Verrierdale Full Moon Dances and comprises 5 very talented musicians who just love performing songs from the 60s and 70s with a few modern hits thrown in. While all of them are busy with their separate music careers, when they come together as Psychedelia, its party time.
The Missus Hits, a percussion ensemble from Brisbane, led by musician, artist and philosopher John Salmond beat out tribal grooves with flair and passion.
While the hall is bouncing, there's a well stocked bar and sausage sizzle out the back.
Don't miss this one.
