“THE MVDs PLAY ‘REAL, CRUCIAL, COUNTRY MUSIC’ no matter what Nashville, the music industry and Tamworth try to do to it” so says their publicity and I think that’s right on the money!
The Moonee Valley Drifters will launch their new album “Hill & Range Music” on Sat 25 Feb at Memo Music Hall and, if previous releases are anything to go by, this one’s sure to be another success story to keep the fans happy. It’s a mix of both classic covers and original tracks. Production, playing and vocals are all first class and true to what the guys stand for.
The iconic band are renowned for their classic swing, honky tonk-country and boogie style music and have been an integral part of Melbourne’s music scene for decades. Over the past 32 years the MVDs have also become a favourite in the festival circuit that includes; The Byron Bay Blues Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Gimpy Muster Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival plus many more.
“Hill & Range Music” was profiled in my Melb Observer CC column 22 Feb and yes, I’ll certainly be adding this CD to my Casey Radio playlist. It’s a “Ripper”
