Smoke Stack Rhino – Doom Boogie Tour
August 24, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - August 25, 2019 @ 12:00 am
Heavy blues/grunge from Yarra Ranges, Victoria
Follow the highway east from Melbourne, Australia and you’ll find yourself in the Yarra Ranges, a mountainous, creative mecca where musicians jam until they pass out. This is beer and wine country; a place where goannas roam, kookaburras hunt tiger snakes, and the locals belt paddock bombs around the yard until the motor dies – unless you jam the carburettor open with a stick.
But forget the glossy tourist brochure. It was here, within a rusted tin-shed, that guitarist Ash King and drummer Jeremy Berg first jammed and the seed of what would become grunge-blues trio Smoke Stack Rhino was sown.
Fast forward a few years and add in funk-master Shane Andison on the bass, and the band has toured around Australia multiple times, played over 20 festivals, released their own beer and played with the likes of G Flip, KINGSWOOD, Harts, Bob Log III (USA), and 19-Twenty.
After becoming a trio in late 2018, the band locked itself away and channeled their inner “Yarra Ranges”, expanding their heavy grunge-blues to incorporate influence from psych-rock and roots artists.
In July 2019 the band returned to the stage with a sold-out show at iconic venue Cherry Bar showcasing their latest single ‘Doom Boogie’, released on the band’s new label, Rainhound Records on Friday 16 August 2019.
Over the next two months Smoke Stack Rhino are taking the song around Australia with a 10-date tour throughout August and September.
