THE days of live bands playing in Sandgate are back! Let your hair down and rock out to the sounds of Aussie anthems on the deck at the Full Moon Hotel later this month.
One of Brisbane’s best four-piece cover bands, Stevenson St, will help you relive the good old days with classic pub anthems of the 80s and 90s including Daryl Braithwaite, AC/DC, Cold Chisel, Silverchair and even some Kylie Minogue.
Full Moon Hotel publican Lucinda Black says Stevenson St Band were invited to play their debut performance at the hotel after hearing rave reviews from customers.
Stevenson St consists of husband and wife duo Chris Stevenson and Casey Watt backed by Lincoln Retallack on bass guitar and Paul Bain on drums.
Chris and Casey have been performing together around South-East Queensland for the past 10 years.
One thing that sets Stevenson St apart is its vocal harmonies. Three of the band members can sing and play multiple instruments.
“One of our greatest strengths as a band is our musical diversity in style, intensity, genre and era,’ Chris says.
“We draw musical influence from a vast array of styles, making us remarkably versatile.
“Being able to go from Top-40 pop classics spanning from the 1950s through to songs charting now, with styles including rock, blues, reggae, funk, Motown, soul, country and disco.
“ Anyone who comes along will be able to hear our take on almost whatever song they love, no matter what age group.’’
Lucinda says the hotel has been a favourite watering hole for more than 150 years and she is keen to continue showing patrons a good time by offering live music on stage performed by soloists, duos and popular Brisbane bands like Stevenson St.
“The old girl has witnessed numerous styles of music grooved to on her dance floor over the eras,’’ Lucinda says.
“We’re taking our punters back to the good old days of the 80s and 90s with some classic pub hits.
“You won’t be able to help but belt out a tune and dance the night away.’’
Stevenson St Band will perform on the main deck at the Full Moon Hotel on Saturday August 25 at 9pm. Entry is free. For more information visit fullmoonhotel.com.au.
