G is for… Greystones
Monday March 26, 8pm
It’s business as usual at work before clocking out and making a beeline towards flagship Thornbridge pub The Greystones out Eccy Rd South way and beyond. It’s a fair trek without transport so I’m grateful to Mercury for the door to door service.
I’m in The Backroom tonight – where the music magic happens – and it’s always a treat when top local promoter Wagon Wheel Media is behind an event. Dave Sleney kicks things off acoustically with a combination of heartfelt originals and covers before Exposed In Session stars The Payroll Union take to the stage to deliver a breath-taking performance full of energy, emotion and lyrical brilliance. The only thing missing, frankly, is a sunset and silhouettes.
Headliners for the evening are The Deadly Gentlemen – who are both deadly AND gentlemen. Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, they’re not your bog-standard bluegrass outfit. Sweet five-way harmonies, incredible musicianship and a batch of songs that wouldn’t be out of place on many a decent TV/film soundtrack. A toe-tapping treat indeed. Night over? Not likely…
Ladies and Deadly Gentlemen, it's our pleasure to introduce to you…
