Going up to Gympie

So yesterday the Gympie Music Muster made their second round of artist announcements and guess who's on the bill? That's right baby, it's the Rechords.

To be playing one of Queensland's best country music festivals is a killer career move - surely now I'm destined to become the next Lee Kernaghan? (who's also back at the Muster this year) or Taylor Swift?! (who's not). If Tyron play's his cards right I'll let him be Billy Ray Cyrus (also not appearing).

But seriously, we are stoked and honoured to be playing this awesome festival and 'broadening our horizons' yet again. It looks like there are a lot of great artists on the bill, check it out here.

As a band I don't think we've toured north of Brisbane yet (unless you count Europe, I guess) and I can't wait to have a look at the country around Amamoor Creek, south of Gympie, where the festival is held. 

The event runs over four days and 50 hectares – so it's massive. I guess you need all that room because everyone camps. Why not pack your pup tent and join us? 

We're playing twice: on Thursday 28th August and again on Sunday 31st.

On the Friday night we're going to sneak back to Brisbane and play the awesome Lefty's Music Hall, joined by our mates The Walters - it's gonna be grouse!

I'm not sure if this is what is meant by 'plenty of hot showers'? I'm not really fluent in Queensland lingo. Image courtesy of weekendnotes.com
