A Day On The Green has delivered a 5 Star 5 Band All-Australian line-up for its first announcement of the 2016/2017 season.
You Am I, Something For Kate, Spiderbait, Jebediah and The Meanies will start the season in November.
Something For Kate’s Paul Dempsey is thrilled to be going out with bands he aspired to. “You Am I, Spiderbait, The Meanies… I fell in love with all of these bands as a teen attending the fabled Saturday and Sunday arvo All Ages shows that were a fixture in many Melbourne pubs like The Corner Hotel, The Central Club, The Palace and The HiFi. I was completely in awe. The raw power those bands radiated from the stage got my heart racing and my brain buzzing and gave me the kick I needed to get a band together and start making some noise ourselves. Before too long, Something For Kate were joining the line-up at those shows and not long after that we were off on our first proper national tour with none other than Jebediah. Amazing… The only thing more amazing is that here we are in 2016 and all five of these bands (all old mates now) are about to hit the road together for the very first time to take the very concept of the Afternoon All-Ages Show and tear it a new one… can’t wait.”
For Tim Rogers, “To play anywhere, anytime is a gas, but to play with friends in wineries? That’s high falutin’ nuclear blast potential.”
