If you love heartland rock, folk, pop, blues, roots, and good old rock and roll, you will love the upcoming show at the Buninyong Golf Club this August.
The Ultimate American Rock Show will feature hits from some of the greatest rock artists the USA has produced, performed by Melbourne’s Scarecrow and promises to be one helluva good time.
The massive show will take you on a classic rock journey around the States anywhere from New Jersey with Bruce, down to Florida with Tom, across the midwest of Indiana with John, through the heartland and back across to the West Coast with Glenn, Don, Stevie and the Doobie Brothers, plus some hits from Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendrix and Huey Lewis.
This exploration of America’s finest is the newest venture for Scarecrow, who is well renowned for The John Mellencamp Show, which Mellencamp himself complimented on being one of the most authentic and musically accurate interpretations of his songs he has seen.
Fronted by guitarist Gary Young, Scarecrow has been taking the stage since the late ’80s and features the highest calibre musicians Melbourne can offer along with Anny Remsnik, the sensational backing vocalist and percussionist, who has been with the band from the very start of their journey.
“It’s a really good band and we decided to diversify a little bit and play what we’re kind of good at which is that Americana style of music. There’s a fair bit of talent in the band so it gives everyone a chance to sing. We just love that kind of music; it’s good to play, everyone has a sing and people seem to be loving it.
“Sadly too, we’ve lost a few of those great songwriters,” Gary continues. “Tom Petty was one of my all time favourites so it’s just nice to hear those songs played again personally. Glenn Frey’s gone now as well and we do an Eagles song, but we’ve also got Anny on vocals and she’s a great female singer and percussionist and she gets to branch out on a lot of Sheryl Crow, Joni Mitchell, amongst other artists. It’s a nice mix of songs and it’s got room to move there as well with so many great songs and great American artists, we can cover a lot of ground.”
So pull on your Levis and join in on a-rockin’ salute to the iconic artists from the land of the red, white and blue.
If you’re up for dinner and show, it all kicks off from 6:30pm at the Buninyong Golf Club. Show only tickets are also available via www.trybooking.com
