BULLHORN:-
There’s an old saying, popularised by The Breakfast Club: “you mess with the bull, you get the horns”. What does it mean? Not much really. Mostly that if you do something dangerous, you might get hurt. One dangerous thing you could do would be to miss the crazy, brass based, MC led explosion that is BULLHORN at The Hotel Brunswick Saturday August 27th!

BULLHORN have been working hard on the Australian music scene, performing at festivals all over the country including Queenscliff Music Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Port Fairy Festival, Vivid Sydney, Ocean Street Festival, Mullum Festival, Bello Festival and that’s just in the last few months! After a spate of so many fantastic shows BULLHORN are gig fit and never sounding better! Roman MC, the front man, is intoxicating with his rhythmic word play and massive charismatic stage presence. When his skills are combined with the hard hitting sounds of 7 horns players and 1 bossing drummer the results are awe-inspiring. Their shows are a unique and incredible experience, like no other, and a must to see.

Dave Orr Band:-
Playing the blues is never as simple as it seems. It’s a balancing act between virtuosity and feel, rawness and finesse. Many try, but few seem to nail it like DAVE ORR. At the heart of his music is that unmistakably raw blues guitar. It’s the sound of late night whiskey bars, of musicians stretching themselves and just letting loose.

It’s a scene that Dave knows better than most as he has become nothing less than a fixture of the Brisbane music scene over the past decade. A legend even that has shared more stages with more artists than even he could remember.

Rewind a few years and Dave was cutting his teeth performing with the kind of all out fusion acts Brisbane seems so good at producing – rock, pop, ska, funk it was all in there. His breakthrough came with power pop **** Numbers Radio – a band that scored national airplay through triplej and a growing live following drawn to the bands ability to pen whip smart pop tunes and play them live like nothing else.

In his heart though, Dave has always been a blues man and he has relished years of late nights rocking up to small bars with his beat up Gibson and losing himself in music. Despite playing just about any style you could name over the years, he has always found a home with Bluesy guitar driven Americana, and it’s a sound he has nailed on his recent debut release, Champagne. Johnny Winter, Gary Clarke Junior, Hendrix, Muddy Waters, Peter Green…it’s music as mothers milk for Dave.

Dave’s reputation as a peerless guitar player has also seen Dave tour Europe and North America as a session musician. And it was while he was camped out in a friends 1950s caravan near Austin, Texas that the new songs started to really take shape. From acoustic picking to blistering solos, the songs not only showcase his jawdropping guitar work, but songwriting smarts earned from years making music.

First taste of the new record is first single ‘Champagne’, anchored by a slinky Al Green feel the song is blues magic helped in part by the Dave’s handpicked line up of players including Mark Henman on drums (Afro Dizi Act, Bernard Fanning, Numbers Radio), Chris Pearson on bass (Washington, Jimmy Barnes), and local Hammond organ whiz Lachy Doley.

Rockin’, real, and impossible to resist Dave Orr may be one of the country’s most experience players - with his best yet to come.
