Rough Red's last Brisbane show :(

My brothers-in-arms and I in ROUGH
RED celebrated our 21st anniversary in 2016. We marked the year by performing
our songwriters circle show, where we played songs from our respective solo and
side project albums together. It really worked a treat, and certainly struck a
chord with our long-time core audience around the country. But it does get
harder and harder for us to get together, living in different parts of the
country now, and all of us having solo careers or other projects to pursue. So
it is with some sadness that we announce that we are playing what will be our
last show in South East Queensland this year, and more than likely
indefinitely, on March 4th. We will be returning to one of our favourite
venues, The Retro Bar in Kenmore, Brisbane. There will be two sets from us, the
aforementioned songwriters circle show, and then a set of Reds tunes from our
various albums. Check out the details in the SHOWS section here. We will be
playing the Yackandandah Folk Festival in Victoria at the end of March, but
more on that final fling later. As I prepare to release my new solo record,
John Fegan also nears the completion of his next solo album, John Barr is
playing bass with Sydney blues band The Red Rattlers (cannot escape the Red
connection !), Pete Harvey has a new duo he is working on material with, and
Dave Mash Parnell has never been busier with production work. But you can be
assured we will be playing these shows as if our lives depended upon it. If you
are one of our Brisbane friends, we would love to see you at the Retro Bar on
March 4th
