Rebranding

Describing themselves as a Rhythm and Blues group may be somewhat misleading, it would be more apt to say they are "Americana," a fusion of Blues/Rockabilly/Country/Rock and Jazz. Finns Music is reminiscent of a time when the audience toe tapped, clicking fingers, playing ghost guitars while listening, and got up and danced seemingly drawn by some unseen force, their bodies transported into movement. Blending a mix of covers with unique originals, Finn becomes more of an experience to be had rather than a Band to be listened to.

HO ho ho, merry Xmas and happy new year to you and your families.
Let’s hope that 2019 will be a great year for us all.
Well that’s it for another year, this one hasn’t been great in a lot of ways, but we got through it.
Thanks to you all for your constant support throughout the year, without ewes we would be playing with ourselves.
So onwards and upwards in 2019, Can the music industry be saved….not by our pollies I suspect, we might have to do this on our own.
Another weekend of great gigs we were back at the Royal last Friday night first time in 6 months well worth the wait and the Native Rose is going from strength to strength, a cracker yesterday, special thanks to Paula McMahon, Ross Waraker and Lucy Desoto for helping out.

Just Thinking

Get used to weirdness. Weirdness is a way of life which leads from the mundane to the extraordinary. Be silly, be fully expressive, be creative, make memories that matter. Be so overcome with passion for the things you love that you set fire to everything holding you back. Just stop trying to "fit in" because it's killing your soul.

If you pay attention, you'll notice the world is getting "weirder" and will never go back to "the good ol' days". Thank goodness for that! Fuck reliving the past; get on with life. Fuck believing the church and government are trustworthy; trust yourself. Fuck believing in the "Australia/American/Kiwi/whatever Dream” get a tiny home, grow some crops, and stop being a gluttonous consumer. Dare to be weird and live a life worth living that's fully loving to yourself and to others. Profess your love to a stranger in public, just because you're both sharing this amazing existence and you wish them all the best, even if they think you're weird. Secretly, they'll love it and will remember you forever!

We all secretly want things to be weird. That's why people get addicted to drugs, movies, TV sitcoms, and malicious sexual fantasies. If people just allowed themselves to be weird, they wouldn't regularly crave these facsimiles, and they wouldn't turn pathological and criminal. They would already be living a fulfilling life in the fantastic way it was made to be lived: freely, creatively, expressively, with a good amount of weirdness.

Great gigs on the weekend Canberra On Saturday thanks to Al and Tracey, and a bit of a sad one, Sunday as it was our last gig at the Home Tavern. The pub has been sold and Trevor is taking some time out to re asses. We have been playing at the Home Tavern for 12 years doing our first and last for the Wonderful Bigee Blues Club, The BBF will be ongoing in a new venue, Many thanks Trev for 12 years of support.
We were supposed to be at the Native Rose this Sunday but were double booked and will now be on the 16/12/18. Stormcellar are on this Sunday and I will be there to support, come and have a drink with me….the beer’s great
What About That 2669
Some strange things happening in this world, was a time when our countries leaders were the best and fairest….now we have Scum Mo.
What About That 2670
Probably going to annoy some with this, but our generation, whilst having some of the best minds are also the greediest generation ever….how did this happen, well I would suggest the self-funded retirement has a lot to do with it. Not suggesting you shouldn’t prepare for your retirement but it shouldn’t be mandatory.
When I was a kid 20% of the population gambled on the stock market, now that number would be up around 90% plus, and remember the Stock market is no fairer a guarantee than a punt on the horses and before you say aught, think back to 2008. Another one coming soon watch this space.
