Live music keeps on getting better in Goulburn and it’s going up another notch.
This Friday September 14, the Astor Hotel plays host to Running in the Shadows, the Fleetwood Mac Appreciation Show.
They’re used to performing in sell-outs across the nation, such as at Penrith Panthers and Cairns Casino.
The members of the band are vocalists Ursula Cain and Clodagh Reid, lead guitarist Eddy Santacru, acoustic guitarist and keyboardist Gary Stewart and Bill Kervin on the bass.
Stewart and his wife started the band about 12 years ago because of their love of the actual band.
The Appreciation Show band has mainly performed in Australia, but aims to take it to the next level. “We are looking to go on more international tours next year,” Stewart said.
Stewart and the others are ready for what they expect to be a great show.
“We’re … Fleetwood Mac fans,” Stewart said. “Their music is so fantastic. The thing I love about Fleetwood Mac is that their songs are written so well. They appeal to everyone, from 18 to 80.”
The show celebrates the original Fleetwood Mac, who know they exist. Stewart, who has seen his heroes perform some eight times, openly emulates them.
“We pretty much copy what they do when they play the music live,” Stewart said. However, the Fleetwood Mac Appreciation Show put their own spin to some songs, where they can.
Incidentally, Stewart’s favourite song will get the night underway.
“My favourite song is The Chain, which will be the first song of the night,” he said. “Other songs will include Go Your Own Way, Don’t Stop and Dreams.
“We just cover most of the songs on their number one album, which is their Rumours album.”
For those thinking about going along, the guitarist has this to say: “Come along, because we don’t often get to play in Goulburn,” Stewart said.
“If you just love listening to live music, come and have a listen. I promise you’ll have a good night.”
Tickets range from $20-$25 and the show runs from 8pm to 11.30pm.
