’2014 US Tour’ Diary – Part 1

Ok! We’ve made it to Austin.

Customs and Immigration let us in to the USA and we’ve almost recovered from jet lag. We’ve been prepping for the upcoming 50 date tour by making 40 bottles of BBQ sauce… What?! Did you just say 40 bottles of BBQ sauce?!… yup… Sauce…

We also picked up a handy little HD camera to document the tour. Nick’s cousin Cliff did us a massive favour and sourced us our touring vehicle. Here’s a little something our head film-maker, Julian Abrahams, put together…

2014 US Tour

 
“Road Trip” might be an understatement for this one! Only one month until we hit the USA! If you have any friends along the way, let them know, we would love to say G’day.

We’ve been itching to release our latest clip – Powerlines – and here it is! It’s got a little something for everyone; from Steampunkers, to Ornithologists, Bar-Dwellers to 2D Animation buffs!

Many thanks to our amazing, super-talented animator Simon Howe from No Such Place. He’s put in a lot of hard hours and I’m sure you’ll agree that the result is stunning.

Feel free to give it a share, give it some love, give No Such Place a visit or even give some private applause from the comfort of your own home.

Golden Guitars and Crusty Mustard – The greatest Mustered Courage tribute band of all time…

Its been a busy year for us already!

Just got back from Tamworth Country Music Festival where again we kept a frantic schedule of fast picking, parade floating, celebrity hob knobbing, hand shaking, baby kissing, flyer distributing, media calling, cowboy-hat signing, guest appearing, radio broadcasting, charity lawn bowling, honky-tonk appreciating, string changing, & partner twirling.

Aside from being nominated for two golden guitars at the 2014 CMAA awards, we were also honoured to perform in the opening the ceremony to a sold out 3000-strong arena. We didn’t bring home the gold this time but we were very proud to be in the running.

In keeping with our reputation of surprise-filled shows, we had the pleasure of having such amazing guests on stage as: Kasey Chambers, Mark Gable (of The Choirboys fame), Sara Storer, Shane Nicholson, Harry Hooky and a host of very talented musicians.

Kasey hailed us as ‘The best Fu*%ing gig in Tamworth’ to her 32,00 twitter followers. We also got a spot on an ABC national broadcast amongst the festival shenanigans.

Muzcuz finished off Tamworth with a bang, sharing the stage with Australian country music royalty, the MycClymonts, in front of 8,000 punters at the Bicentennial Park stage.

On the way home we stopped in to perform live on air in the first ever ‘Aussie Opry’. A new segment on the ABC’s Saturday Night Country, with Bill Chambers, Lachlan Bryan, and Robyn Ludwick. Several bands all squished into the same tiny radio booth! 

2014 is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever. We’re kicking off Melbourne happenings with a  very special show at the Northcote Social Club on March 7th. We’ll be supporting ‘the greatest Mustered Courage tribute band of all time’ – Crusty Mustard – in a fun-filled night of madness! There’ll be our regulation bluegrass set, what you all know and expect, BUT afterwards we’ll be getting out the electric guitars, pulling out the drums and hitting you with a set of Honky Tonk and Southern Rock. Muzcuz like you’ve never seen before!
