Group to play favourites

Albany Advertiser - - AGENDA - Shan­non Smith

Den­mark’s Mon­key Rock are gear­ing up to ooze pas­sion and ded­i­ca­tion for rock mu­sic when they play at Wil­son’s Brew­ery on Satur­day.

Named af­ter Den­mark’s lo­cal land­mark, the term re­flects the band’s per­sona — mon­key hints at the fun the band have, and rock in­di­cates the solid mu­si­cal back­ground the band formed on.

Band man­ager and bass gui­tarist Gil­bert Ar­lan­doo said the four ex­pe­ri­enced mu­si­cians want noth­ing more than to bring the great rock hits to the Great South­ern Re­gion, while hav­ing a good time along the way.

“There is some­thing about the way we play to­gether, some­times it’s by ac­ci­dent and some­times it’s through our com­bined ex­pe­ri­ences,” he said.

“We pay at­ten­tion to each other and use dif­fer­ent ideas to cre­ate ar­range­ments and vari­a­tions that make the cov­ers flow bet­ter for our band con­fig­u­ra­tion.

“Most im­por­tantly we have fun play­ing to­gether.”

Mon­key Rock will cover an eclec­tic range of mu­sic when they play at Wil­sons.

Ex­pect crowd favourites by their mu­si­cal in­flu­ences such as Nir­vana, Pink Floyd, Muse, AC DC, and Foo Fight­ers.

Ar­lan­doo said they would play rock clas­sics, hard rock, punk rock and pop rock. “We avail our­selves to play from full elec­tric to un­plugged (semi-acous­tic) gigs to suit the event, the venue, the oc­ca­sion or the au­di­ence.”

Re­live the great­est of rock mu­sic at Wil­son’s Brew­ery at 1pm on Satur­day, Novem­ber 11.
