Rattlincane played their first gig for us on Friday September 15 and were well received.

They played a great blend of original songs and covers from artists as diverse as John Fogerty, Dale Watson, Dwight Yoakam, Paul Kelly and a Jimmie Rodgers classic from 1929. See more photos
 
 
The Moonee Valley Drifters played for us on Friday September 8 and put on a fine show.

Special guest on honky tonk piano was James Black (the house band leader of Melbourne’s RocKwiz Orkestra).

We don’t often get piano at The Guild and it was a treat with James trading keys with Rob Grenville and his jazz-tinged licks on lead guitar.

With three vocalists, it was a great night of country music.

Friday September 22: The Dalton Gang plus special guests Terry Dean and Dave Moore

The Dalton Gang won the Guild’s Most Popular Band Award in 2004 and 2005
