Originally from Shetland, pop-infused alt-country rockers Duncan Phillips and The Long Stand join forces with Scottish born Australian raised blues/soul man Steve Boyd and The Rum Reverie to launch their new albums at a special one off gig dubbed “No Bagpipes!" on Thursday 7th of July!
Duncan has been working away since arriving in Melbourne two years ago, building a solid reputation as an energetic and talented performer on the local gig circuit. He’ll be launching his debut solo album “The Wilderness.”
Steve Boyd’s reputation precedes him. He has a rich history on the festival circuit and has shared stages with Bob Dylan and Ray Charles in the 90’s. After a long hiatus, he’s back with The Rum Reverie and a new album with a punk brain, a gospel soul, a blues heart and sly hints of jazz trickling through its veins, "Healers And Howlers."
Two great bands. Guitars. Horns. Scotch Whisky at the bar. But No Bagpipes!
