Get ready for a dose of electrifying, hip-shakin’ rock’n’roll with Melbourne’s own high-soaring Riflebirds.
The five-piece band’s latest collection of lightning in a bottle has been released: Live At The Espy – a killer set of tracks recorded at the legendary Esplanade Hotel with enough foot-stompin’ goodness to get you up and moving.
The new live Riflebirds album follows three highly acclaimed studio releases: Ain’t Ever Going Home (2018), World Feels Wide (2016) and the debut record Detours & Collisions (2015).
Channeling the spirit of keyboard-guitar led bands such as The Faces, Radio Birdman and The Heartbreakers, the band’s high-energy sound is created by Rowan Roebig (vocals, guitar), John Kenyon (guitar), Rod Collins (vocals, bass), Damian Toussaint (keyboards) and John Jessen (drums).
From Brunswick to Ballarat to Byron Bay, the band have played at some of the best-known live music venues and festivals in Australia. Festival appearances include NightJar, Leaps & Bounds, Darebin Music Feast, Spring Fling and Ballarat Beer Festival – and you’ll often see them on the bill at Melbourne’s legendary live venues such as The Labour In Vain, The Retreat, The Rainbow or The Espy.
They’ve toured up and down the east coast and beyond, sharing stages with the likes of Ron Peno, Dallas Crane, Dan Brodie, Ben Salter and Freya Josephine Hollick.
