​

My latest 2 gigs have included Contrabands regular Portsea residency (2nd Saturday of every month) and a ‘first time’ gig at The Westernport Hotel.

​

Both gigs were great fun, with Portsea continuing to live up to its reputation as possibly the best live nightspot on the Peninsula. Even with our vocalist recovering from a cold, the band belted out it array of 40+ songs to an enthusiastic crowd (some times a little too enthusiastic)

​

We travelled down to ‘The Westernport’ hotel in San Remo and played the front bar to  a crowd of around 50 locals. This is a  great little venue and I imagine it would be absolutely wild in summer ! We are hoping to get back there on some sort of regular booking.

​

Latest breaking news....Contraband looks to have pretty much scored a monthly gig at Pugg Mahones in Bendigo...another one of my favorite venues...just a long drive ! 

​

On a personal note...Ive just about got this double thumb slap technique sorted.....another couple of weeks and I think I’ll be there.....nice :-)
