Clubbing, gigs and shows
acoustic rock cover band Fingerprints, pictured, play at Southport Sharks tomorrow. The band boast a huge repertoire of songs by Powderfinger as well as tunes by Pete Murray, John Butler Trio, Jet, Evermore, Eskimo Joe, Bernard Fanning, Hunters & Collectors, Midnight Oil and more. Fronted by lead vocalist and acoustic guitar player Wes Mahony, the band also features Nathan Bauer on acoustic guitar, vocals and harmonica, Dayle Sutherland on bass guitar and vocals and HaydnTomlinson on drums and vocals. The four play covers as well as their own compositions. Don’t be fooled by the acoustic guitars. They have added some awesome effects pedals to their set-up that can make their acoustics scream like a Les Paul cranking through a Marshall stack, or cry like a Strat through a Fender twin amp. Fingerprints love their audience to participate and with iconic Powderfinger songs such as My Happiness, Passenger, Sunsets, Waiting for the Sun, Burn Your Name and Sail the Wildest Stretch, for most it won’t be a challenge to get lost in Aussie rock anthems.
Fingerprints play Southport Sharks tomorrow at 8.30pm. Free entry.
