Originals, Awards And Adventures

We can't believe how fast 2014 is drawing to a close! November has been a very busy month for us, Christmas is upon us and there seems to be no slowing down in sight!

We are very excited to announce that we finished and debuted our very first original song this month. We collaborated together to write Rusty Brown, a rollicking folk song about Rabbit's dad who spent his youth as a brumby catcher. We will be recording Rusty Brown on our upcoming live album, which will be available early in the New Year. We are also working on some more originals that we can't wait to bring to you!

The Kroovs have been named finalists in the Best Live Entertainment category of the Douglas Business Awards. We are so delighted to have been included with a host of very talented local muso's. We never thought that only 6 months after forming The Kroovs we would be named finalists in these awards!

*THIS JUST IN!* Congratulations to Timber and Wood who took out the award last night! Well deserved award to the hardest working band in Port Douglas.

Balcony TV
On the 28th of December we will be doing a live recording in Cairns with Balcony TV, which is a leading daily online viral music show that features band and musician performances on balconies around the world. Previous Balcony TV performers include Mumford And Sons, Matt Corby and The Script, some pretty impressive alumni there, and we can't wait to be a part of it.

We will be recording Rusty Brown live at The Jack Hotel upstairs and will be following the recording up with a 50 minute set as a part of the BTV Live Show at The Jack. Other performing artists at the event include our very good mates Timber And Wood, King Pig and In The Element.

The BTV Live Show is from 3-6pm, The Jack Hotel, Cnr Spence & Sheridan Street. See you all there!


New Years Eve - Cape Tribulation
This year we will be ringing in the New Year at PK's Jungle Village in Cape Tribulation as part of a two stage spectacular with Timber And Wood. Setting up on two separate stages and going set for set from 3pm until midnight, we think this NYE is going to be particularly radical!

PK's will be doing drink specials and are offering an accommodation deal, if you pay for one night, you can get a second night's accommodation for half price.

We have created an event on Facebook so if you are keen to get on the good foot and party in the jungle with us share it around with your friends


2015 and BEYOND!
We are busy into planning 2015 and its looking like a ripper year. We are currently applying for a bunch of festivals throughout QLD and look forward to getting out and about and meeting new people and seeing some of the great music on offer in Australia.

We are also booking a lot of local gigs for next year. We will be performing at McGinty's on Friday nights on a regular basis, so if you are a cairns local we urge you to go check out McGinty's, its a brilliantly authentic Irish pub (Kilkenny on tap and all!) and we love to play there.

With the great possibility of having RELIABLE wheels, touring may also be an option for us in the next 12 months. For those who have seen our rig (or more likely heard it come squeaking and rattling down the street) you can understand how we haven't wanted to take her long distances. It might just be time for her to be put out to pasture.

$500 Car?!? That is some fancy musicians right there!

With the news of the new Pirates Of The Caribbean flick being filmed in town we are looking forward to the business that will be drummed up in the otherwise quiet months, and are hoping to snag extra rolls, if only Rabbit can work on her beard by then!

We want to wish every one a happy Christmas, and to thank everybody who has ever come to one of our gigs, tipped us, applauded us, tolerated us or put 20c in our case when we have been busking. We have had an amazing year and would not have been able to do it without the support of the peeps, so thank you!

See you all around the traps!
