BAND NAME: The Get Downs
MEMBERS NAMES & ROLES: Bridget Croft (vocals), Alex Plegt (guitar), Chris Gleeson (drums), James Montgomery-Willcox (bass/ vocals)
GENRE: Ahhhhh… let us think about that for a second. We’ve been described as Merseybilly, American 50s rock and roll with a British 60s powerpop feel.
HOMETOWN/STATE: Canberra ACT
ORIGINALS/COVERS/BOTH: Both, Alex and James are working on new material and we will pretty much end up playing mostly original material with some select, but obscure, covers.
HOW WOULD YOU EXPLAIN YOUR SOUND? A voodoo stew of rockabilly, garage, surf punk, mod and good old rock and roll….
WHAT’S THE MOST INTERESTING EXPERIENCE YOU’VE HAD WHILE PERFORMING?
Our very first set as a new band was ended prematurely by the Mayor of Queanbeyan because he wanted to say something. Oh, and Alex once smiled.
WHERE TO IN THE FUTURE?
Hoping to get into the studio and record a full-length LP and continue gigging around town to bigger (and wilder) audiences.
WHERE CAN WE HEAR YOUR MUSIC?
Nothing recorded as yet however, through the magic of Youtube…
Any of the band members on FB. Or through our FB page
