INTERRUPTED TOUR DATES 17-03-2022
Seems we can't take a trick lately. The 'Banjo's Last Ride' tour kicked off in great fashion with some mighty shows in Byron Bay and South East Queensland. We were then set to head south to play Sydney, Canberra, and the NSW South Coast, when the devastating floods hit the NSW Northern Rivers and Brisbane. I was stranded for a few days, Jodi was cut off, and Sal copped water through his house. Then the highways south were cut and we couldn't get through anyway. On top of that, even if we had made it to Sydney, the bad weather smashed the NSW capital and surrounds, so it wouldn't have been a great weekend for punters to get to a gig!
As shattered as we were, we were all safe and well, unlike so many people who lost their homes. I was at least able to spend a few days helping friends with the clean up.
We were able to head west last week, into outback Queensland, and play a handful of shows to communities that have been starved of live music for a couple of years. We plan to reschedule the southern dates, so will let you know about that as soon as possible. Victoria will come later in the year.
Reaction to 'Banjo's Last Ride' continues to blow us away. Thank you to everyone who has bought a CD or downloaded tracks...
Hope to see you soon, back on the road! Best, Steve
