We took a little break and played at some of our fave gigs on the beautiful South Coast of NSW.
Hyper Hyper Coffee let us play out front on the Friday Morning …it was freezing and tested both of us but we loved it immensely…thanks Pip. Saturday lunch Nicole and Gerard from Bistro 146 in the Kangaroo Valley were our hosts and some old friends came out of the woodwork to say hello…then an impromptu house party jam in the Blue Mountains in Leura on the way home to Mudgee
We did a house sit in Shoalhaven Heads and cut a few live performances and filmed them…this is a true representation of what we sound like now …plus Elizabeth came up with a great new song ;Sea Myst’ with her new guitar and pedal set up…very psychedelic
Looks like there are a few gigs in the wind around Mudgee for Honey and Kings of Congo Congo….Stay tuned come June July August
The Bob Marley Festival in Kandos this year was the first time for two oof oour new drummers…Jasper Miller and Hamish Fittler made their first ever public appearances and though a tad nervous had no problems fitting in.
The festival was moved at the last minute to indoors and this ensured a huge sound which really got the audience going and we got an amazing reaction
Some pics and a youtube video which Jacob put up are here
The crew after the gig l to r Hamish Fittler, Jacob Barnes, Angus Standfield, Mitchell Dover, Jasper Miiller, Rich, Elizabeth Walton
The Honey EP Valentines Day is finally out …after almost 2 years but its worth it
Sounds looks and feels great and weve been playing to support it…also check out the great clip for it
After a quiet few months there has been a flurry of activity…hopefully the Honey CD will be out soon and there are a lot of gigs in the pipeline…recently did 4 gigs in 2 weeks at Roths Wine Bar

After a flash of inspiration from fellow musician Glenn Van Reason in Mudgee I took the Kings of Congo Congo in a different direction
Now we play with 3 snares and 3 toms…all standing. The rhythms are more structured and slightly more military in nature. IT will take a loot of work to pull pieces together but the initial ideas are fascinating and exciting
After much toing and froing over the last half year we are safely ensconced in a new music tuition studio operating out of the Uniting Church Mudgee. Its located on Mortimer St opposite Woolworths and it has been home to over 30 students since the start of March.
Its a fantastic cool iconic space with lots of great ambience, sandstone and stained glass with some awesome acoustics and most importantly no noise restrictions which proved to be the most limiiting thing at the last studio on Lewis St.
