The PlanThe  PLAN - websize

Forget all the cheesy cover band bio clichés or ripping off some dated FM radio catch cry, thePLAN want to be known as a four piece rock band that plays songs that you like to listen to.

In fact there is the possibility that, between your third or fourth drink, thePLAN will be playing songs that you will love to dance to.

This is good, as dancing brings a sense of community to participants and a feeling of being “As One”.

Music and dancing was also what early human society invented for prospective mates to demonstrate their attractiveness and availability to each other, long before eHarmony.

thePlan takes this community responsibility seriously, therefore from 8.30pm on 30th January, 2015, thePLAN will be facilitated by: Sir Rodney Cooper on the kit and vocals, Mr Andrew Bennison on bass and biceps, HRH Dean Bennison on guitar and vocals and Le Brevis Ashton on vocals and blonde guitar.

Come and be “As One” with us, you won’t regret it!!! Well not during the gig anyway, what you do once we go home is entirely your responsibility.

GinhouseGinhouse - web 60Kb

The Ginhouse Bluesband is a high-energy rock/blues band featuring gritty, emotional vocals, virtuosic guitar playing and a tight pounding rhythm section. Formed in the summer of ’93 by Tony Cini (Geeza) and Rick Lum (Hush), the band was established at a time when Blues music was experiencing a revival with the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan and ZZ Top. The band played extensively in Sydney, at times 4 to 5 gigs a week, and was regarded as one of the hardest working blues bands in New South Wales notching 144 gigs in 1997.

Some 17 years later and now residing in the Illawarra, the Ginhouse Bluesband continues to play in Sydney, Newcastle, Canberra and Wollongong which is testament of their enduring appeal to audiences young and old. The core members of the band are Tony Cini – lead vocals, Al Britton – bass (Bondi Cigars), Paul O’Brien – guitar and Bruce Stephens – drums (ex-King Bees).

The band draws its material from the Chicago of the 1950s from Buddy Guy and BB King to the British Blues Boom of the late 1960’s. Renowned for their high-energy performances, the band is well and truly in flight when it performs its renditions of Willie Dixon’s “Spoonful” and Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along the Watchtower”.

The band has performed on the same bill as Jeff Lang, Chain, Pete Wells, the Foreday Riders, Kevin Borich’s Express, Mal Eastick Band, Mighty Reapers and Hats Fitz to name a few.

Junior & JeweltonesJewel Tones

Jr & the Jewel-Tones is the latest unit to be fronted by some of Sydney’s veteran blues musicians. The Jewel-Tones play a heart-felt mix of funky & swinging, soulful grooves that always have a firm foundation in the raw Chicago blues of the ‘50’s & 60’s. Expect some Little Walter & Jr Wells harmonica-based pieces but be prepared for excursions into soul, funk and groovy, organ-based jazz, sometimes punctuated by Bruce’s beefy baritone saxophone playing.

Bruce BONGERS (vocals, harmonicas, saxophones: ex Jr & the Gold-Tops, Bigtop Blues Band, Downhome Quartet) is joined by guitarist Dave “Cross-Cut” Shaw, master keyboardist John Tweed, and Bruce’s long-term select rhythm section of Peter O’Neill (double bass) & Darryl Jacobs (drums).

The band came about when Bruce & Dave were playing with Steve Garry’s 21-20s. They quickly realized the affinity they had with each other’s playing. Both had a deep appreciation of the subtle synergies of the guitar and harmonica’s roles in classic Chicago blues and also an adventurous spirit that prepared them to explore more closely areas of soulful jazzy grooves.

With a wide-range of influences (including Jr Wells, Robert Jr Lockwood, Little Walter, Jimmy Smith, Ronnie Earl, Pepper Adams, Kenny Burrell) the Jewel-Tones are ready to carve out a unique niche in Sydney’s R&B scene. They have the experience, chops & determination to get you shakin’.
