Kroovy life back in Oz, heavy metal and tour rumblings!

Good Afternoon dear readers! It's been months since we last spoke and a lot has happened in that time! This month marks a year since we jetted off to the other side of the planet to tour around England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Italy, Spain and Belgium and it feels like it was only yesterday (wish it was tomorrow!). The 7 months that have past since we returned have just flown by, where has the year gone? Well a few things have happened for us....

We have moved into a new house this year that has a lot of space and a really nice feel so this year has been a little less stressful and feels a lot more productive. There is a new album in sight, we hope to have it out by April and we are putting our young housemate through the gruelling task of learning the bass guitar so we may have a guest bass player from time to time next year as well! 

Stacey has taken to plugging her fiddle into a giant guitar amplifier and playing heavy metal inspired licks and solos (watch this space) and I have been working on a device that allows me to attach my kick drum to my back and play the bugle hands-free for all those bottom end beats and haunting trumpet calls that crawl in to your brain like a military earworm. (Just kidding.... about the bugle and back drum..... the heavy metal is happening!) So much has happened but the last month was really special, we have been to a white wedding on a boat, played a triple band bill at The Lions Den Hotel and played at Rock The Yacht right here in Port Douglas! If you haven't been up north this year, you gotta book some tickets for next year, it's going to be even bigger and better! 

As you may know already, we mostly play in Port Douglas and it has some really great benefits, one of which is the transient audience base that we encounter. During the dry/high season, with it's utopian weather, we see familiar faces back for their yearly supply of sunshine and tranquillity and it's always so nice to catch up and have a chat. Another benefit is that with this broad geographical cross section of new and old friends, we have an endless supply of venue suggestions, should we decide to tour Australia. Now, I have my trusty iphone notepad which I am using to collate a list of pubs, clubs and libraries that we will visit when we get on the road SOOOOOOOOOOOOO We are pleased to announce that we will be touring the east coast of Australia from late November 2017 to around late February 2018! 

So it's that time of the year again, the downhill run into Wallaby Creek Music Festival which starts at the end of the month. We will be heading up to Homerule (just south of Cooktown) for a week of camping and relaxing and 3 days of the best festival that the Far North has to offer! And this year we are ON THE BILL! That's right folks, this is the first music festival that The Kroovs have been booked for and we are SO EXCITED! Of course, we have attended Wallaby Creek Music Festival before so we can say with authority that it is an absolute blast and not to be missed! You can buy tickets online or at the gate, it really is not to be missed! We would love to see you there!

Cheers!

    Great post Seamie. If I was there I'd be at all your gigs! I know I'm a tad biased but The Kroovs are just the best and you'll knock 'em dead on your Australian tour next year. Bon Chance. Ps That young housemate will be an added bonus as well.

    Hello, sorry to clog up your comments with biased family members, but this all sounds amazing! Especially the hands free bugle! Also, could you please pull forward your east coast tour a tad? And will you be coming to Canberra? Love you!
