Custard + Hysteria = KASTORIA
What happened last Friday 13TH:
I’M CURED!! There is nothing quite like a good Dance Off to cure what ails you and the good Doctor did some serious cure-ing. We were all under the Doctor’s spell last Friday, the band casting their good voodoo on the crowd to make everyone feel alive and well. Some of Melbourne’s finest musicians did it once again at the Kastoria Music club. Thank you Sally and Patrick for bringing Dr Hernandez to Far North Coburg, we will be seeing the Doctor again before the end of the year for a checkup. Keep you posted on that one, now I’m off to see the podiatrist.
This coming Friday July 20th:
This week sees Danny Walsh and his Banned of Reserve-WAR boys coming over the tracks to far North Tropical Coburg. Danny will be rolling up the stairs with his band to play some Rockin Rezza Piano driven Boogie. Reminiscent of Joe Cocker’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen the ‘Banned’ will take us swamp (creek) side of the border of Reservoir and Coburg to play 2 darn hot sets of Aussie Boogie (there is such a thing), swamp blues to piano-driven rock’n’roll and southern soul. With an evolving line-up keeping the sound supple, the Banned features members of Cannon, Clinkerfield, Colleen Hewett and Courtney Barnett alongside keyboard killer Leo ‘The Weed’ Tellefson and their rambunctious feather-capped Captain Danny. Catch them at their new local haunt, The Kastoria Music Club before they’re forever banned! Its gonna be GOOD.

Here’s some pre gig viewing/listening for you
Youtube including the film clip to the first single from the latest Banned album
The bar continues to make everyone happy. Funny that! We saw the Espresso Martinis running out through the swinging doors of the canteen bar. It must be our very fair price and of course the style and grace in which they are made (thank you Jimmy and Tash) Shake shake shake, shake your booty! Our choice of Beers from all corners of the globe are still pleasing everyone. When your corners are Ireland, Italy, Greece and Coburg I’d call that a good round square! Enough about all that for now. Continuing on: News from Ange, from the Sound Department. He’s very, very, very happy with his new toy. It’s a YAMAHA -ha O1V 96 Desk (it’s all Greek to me). And can I add, to everyone else! The band mentioned the amazing fold back more than a dozen times. While the crowd were raving about the front of house sound.
So I hope this Kastoria up date finds you all well. Thank you for reading, listening, coming, going , signing in to come on up! YA-SOU from all zee gang at Le Club. The Kastoria Music Club, ITS SO FAR OUT IT’S IN!
