Our final Family Affair night for 2019 features The Shields family, Lindsey and sons Eugene and Max, with an eclectic mix of originals and favourite covers. Eugene and Max grew up with musical instruments always available in the house and graciously helped to populate their mother's school music department by encouraging their mates along. They have each been in various bands in their teenage and adult life, most recently working together in their band Horatio, performing original songs. Lindsey has appeared in several line-ups locally and is also a songwriter and solo performer.
The evening will open with a support band - The Nepotists / Tear down the fences / Fruit
They say "Yes, a band without a name but plenty of suggestions! Call us what you like.
We love making music together and have previously taken part in the Robbie Rocks song competition. Phil Glassey plays guitar and sings, and his son Ben plays the bass and any other instrument you ask him. The other family part is Phil’s partner, Heike, with her clarinet and her son, Liam, on drums.Our music consists of a range of covers as well as songs composed by Phil. When we practise we talk about our songs and how to sing them, but really Phil is the boss! - (someone needs to be!)."
