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.
