    Barrelhouse
    Bands| Covers| Hobart & Southern Tasmania
    Rock band Barrelhouse has been having fun moving and shaking audiences in Hobart and around the state since 2012. Despite the band’s name, they don’t play barrelhouse jazz  –  defined as “a raucous, driving, unsophisticated style, usually in a small, cheap old-time saloon with a row of racked barrels along the wall”, – (although they admit parts of that description may apply to the band at different times). They can also chill out and put down a quiet, tasteful set for you.

    Don’t Come Monday
    Music| Bands| Blues & Folk
    Originating in Tasmania’s central north coast, Don’t Come Monday have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with on the Tasmanian music scene. Since 2015, the four-piece group have been performing along Tasmania’s North, from Musselroe Bay to Marrawah and everywhere in between. The passion of the group is to create and perform original music with lyrics about life, love, loss, peace, home, hope, happiness and, true to reality – the flip side of it all. Stylistically, the band’s music oozes the blues, infused through rock, folk, funk, reggae, country and punk arrangements alike. All delivered in a distinctly Tasmanian fashion. ‘Hangman’ (2022) is the band’s second single, after independently releasing the controversial and brutally honest, ‘Convenience (Will Kill Us),’ from the six-track ‘Hands of Time’ EP in 2020 to widespread positive response. The band boasts multiple decades of combined musical and performance experience, with prolific songwriter Rob Rose (Thongs and Socks Collective, FOLKUS) on lead vocals, Grant Hearps (Golden Sunbird, Home Brewed Blues, Swell Magnet) on bass, Fintan McCullough (Tessa Lee and The Cold Weather Band, Midnight Messengers) on guitar, and Rick Lovell (Billy Rocket Band, Paradigm, Fireball) on drums. Over the years of gigging, Don’t Come Monday have been fortunate enough to share the bill with such acclaimed Australian artists as Johnny Diesel, Things of Stone and Wood, The Pete Cornelius Band, The Bad Dad Orchestra, Claire Anne Taylor, The Saxons, Canning Duck, Raccoon Dog, Radio Street Band, The Sheyana Band, Cotton Pony, Big Alcatraz, Whalebone, Adapt, and many more. With a new release to promote, and a busy gigging schedule lined up for the coming months, the band are excited and ready to go full steam ahead promoting the audio and video release of ‘Hangman’. You may even find them rolling into your hometown! Don’t Come Monday can perform a mixture of original and cover material, depending on the booking.
