The Rock-itt : November 2009
Day 1 -- Waiting, waiting, waiting for Juzzy, but we finally get under way. Today is just a travel day, so we roll into Jindabyne and go visit some good friends of ours at their property. I get to play night golf with Jake the dog, followed by an impromptu jam of Bob's song "The Lambton Lights" being changed to "The Lambton Tights" while Paul our bass player dances on the bed in his skin tight pyjamas. We managed to wreck one of Bob's best songs and scar ourselves for life in the process! Day 2 - Perisher Pub to Pub race. We have been really fortunate to be invited back by Perisher for the last 5 years to play at the snow and this is our 4th year in a row of playing the Pub to Pub race. Skiers in fancy dress start at Smiggins pub and wind their way around to front valley in Perisher for a beer stop where we are there to entertain. Bob Corbett, who is supporting us on this tour, plays a great set and then Sunroom get into 2 hours straight of full band tunes. The weather was great and we were joined on stage by all sorts of freaks, but all were welcome. Spiderman on lead guitar everyone!! Day 3 - Got to sleep in a bit, kicked a footy on the oval and then on to Snow FM for a Radio interview. Did two segments with the afternoon guy Bede and then played our single "Brand New Start" live to air. They then followed it up by playing our second single, "These Devils" off the album straight after. All went really well and we were stoked with how it turned out. Then straight back to the Station Resort for our show that evening. Bob and Sunroom both played great sets and Sunroom played the new song "She" for the first time. So begins the pick throwing contests with drum roll supplied by the ever capable Juzzy. Day 4 - Will forever go down as the coldest show any of us played ever. Justin played in shorts and the wind chill was -8degrees. Sunroom and Bob Corbett played alternating sets so that each could go inside for 5 minutes and warm the hands up. The crowd was great and we had a bunch of die hards sitting out on the deck with us the whole way through. Days 5 and 6 - SNOWBOARDING !!!! Day 7 - Wagga Wagga. We cross over the Kosciusko National Park and descend the western side into Sunroom is currently one of Northern Beaches most popular bands. Last month the boys did a tour which we thought might interest you. This is a day by day description of that tour from freezing Jindabyne, over the Kosciusko National Park to Wagga Wagga, then Canberra and home.
