What happens when five diehard musicians meld into one band committed to getting you up off your seat, onto your feet and out on the dance floor? The Wilson Cooper Band that’s what! A box full of sounds shake up your soul with wicked guitars moving in and around your favourite rock covers from the ‘60s to now; throw in some serious drum and bass movement; add a pinch of three part harmony; slide in some organic bits and pieces and you have a recipe for rhythm that makes you hungry for more.
Their combined musical past is rich and real (Mal and the Longboarders, Richard Clapton; Nancy Vandal; The Tenants; Bourkenback Boys and Jabiru to drop a few): Their musical future is a blast into 2013.- Wilson Cooper Band play with a beat that gets you up on your feet and feeling sweet.
The Argonauts are the newest Rock Band to grace the Northern Rivers. This four-piece generates a massive sound combining shades of symphonic classical music, electronica, and indie rock all falling under a heavy Space-Rock show fit for stadiums. Delivering heavy, searing guitar riffs, graceful and gritty vocals, concerto style piano pieces, fuzzed out bass sounds, and forceful beats, The Argonauts present a show not to be missed.
Formed in February 2011, locals Mike Watson (guitar, piano, synth) and Tom Doyle (guitar, lead vocals), Phil Reed (bass) and Anastassijah Scales (drums, percussion) have been hard at work on their first demo (as yet untitled) and bringing their music to the live domain.
Their first live performance at the 2011 National Campus Band Competition was broadly acclaimed and The Argonauts received the highest heat point score in the Queensland division. Critics said "Fantastic new sounds in a classic Hard Rock style!", "…delivers a smashing performance.", "Love [The Argonauts'] sound! So want to hear more!!!!"
