Fun times at Mag­nums with fresh lo­cal band

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

LO­CAL mu­si­cians Mark and Bek Roberts have joined forces with drum­mer Pete Vincent and to­gether, as Tropic Tem­ple, the trio are pre­par­ing to bring down the house at Air­lie’s Mag­nums Ho­tel.

“Mark and I have been play­ing to­gether for nine years but now we’ve got a new drum­mer and a fresh new look,” Bek Roberts ex­plained.

De­scrib­ing Pete Vincent, who also plays in orig­i­nals band The Corey Har­ris Trio, as “vi­brant” and “hi­lar­i­ous”, Bek Roberts said the new dy­namic “just re­ally works”.

“He’s just brought a whole new feel to the band –and we’re hav­ing a ball,” she said.

Hav­ing a ball is ex­actly what the band ex­pects to do at their up­com­ing Mag­nums gig this Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 18.

Bek Roberts said the trio would throw some cos­tumes on, dress up and put on a visual show.

She also said they were es­pe­cially look­ing for­ward to play­ing for the Mag­nums crowd.

“They’re a great crowd – they al­ways get in­volved and we have a lot of fun with them,” she said.

“I usu­ally get off the stage and get in and dance with them – they’re a re­ally re­spon­sive crowd and we get a lot out of them – it’s great.”

Tropic Tem­ple are a cov­ers band play­ing mu­sic from the 80’s and the present day. They will be play­ing from 6-10pm and there is no cover charge.
