QUARRY MOUNTAIN DEAD RATS
MONDAYS IN SEPTEMBER Taking it back to a simpler time where the pickin’ was fast and the banjo was king, this five piece hailing from Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, bring their raw and gritty version of bluegrass kicking and hollering into the modern day. They establish an 'old mate' affinity with their audiences while delivering a kick-you-in-the-face live show, setting the tone for a sing along, drink along, foot-stomping good time. QMDR's instrumentation of banjo, mandolin, acoustic guitar, double bass and washboard fits the bluegrass mold, but the influence of old- time mountain-music combined with rock‘n’roll sensibilities, give way to something altogether different. Revellers are no doubt drawn to QMDR's humour and anything goes attitude, but what stands out is their ability to tear into their songs with an intensity that’s rare for an acoustic band. Catch Quarry Mountain Dead Rats every Monday in September in the front bar at the Espy. Free Entry!
