Re - the name change - just as well. To a Brit like myself, "Hornets play Toowoomba" looks like a Rugby League fixture....

:D :D :D

I thought it was probably a soccer game, or maybe something strange like cricket.

Toowoomba! And here I am a newbie wondering who's nearby...

I'm tucked in behind Murwillumbah, below Springbrook...not too far from (hey!) Nimbin.

Gimme the lowdown on The Hornets...

Hey Cat;
Well, the Hornets are now said & done becasue there's another GOOD band using that name. So we're now 'The Zephyr project' & we play with another dude called 'Ugly Graham'. So you'll see us on the Blackboard as 'Ugly Graham & The Zephyr Project". That name's been registered so there should be no more naming drama's. We play Blues & Rockabilly. But we play it with a fair bit of energy & sometimes really dark energy. Our sound is evolving, into something I can't quite describe. Blues with attitdue?

For example two of my favourite songs we play are "Spell' by Howlin' Wolf, only in our version it get's more like (slow) Metallica at the end
The other is 'New Cadillac' by The Clash, which just rolls like a freight train & you better get on board or outta the way! We also play alot of classic blues stuff like SRV, Clapton & Rory Gallagher, & odd beat rockabilly stuff like Charlie & the Nightcats, Three Bad Jacks, & The Stray Cats.

Hey Barnabus Rox - you missed an interesting gig! Our bass player's rig caught fire when one of the speakers burst into flames & we had to clear the pub - true story. I don't think it was supposed to do that!! Our next Toowoomba gig is at the Tatt's on the 6th of September, as we're concentrating on a Blues comp in Brisbane for August. If anyone is down that way it's at the Jubillee & our heat is Aug 26th. ROCK ON!

For anyone else wanting to know the FULL story on the bass-fire, read the 'Mesa Boogie Meltdown' thread. Guys at Mesa & Pro Audio are doing a great job with it. 8)
