Wolverines Ride Into Town for Hit of Southern Vibe

Wolverines Ride Into Town for Hit of Southern Vibe

Who: Wolverines
Where: Belmont 16ft Sailing Club
When: Saturday October 14, 2000

AUSTRALIA'S premier southern-style boogie band THE WOLVERINES will perform on Saturday night at the Belmont 16 Footers.

All veterans of the Australian music scene, DARCY LE YEAR, CHRIS DOYLE and JOHN CLINTON first banded together after discovering an affinity for the music of THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND and LYNRD SKYNRD. The trio made their debut in 1994 at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.

'Only a couple of people showed up to our first gig but that was enough to get the vibe around,' Clinton said. 'By the third gig, there was a queue out the door and down the street.'

Two years later the trio signed a record deal with ABC MUSIC, and cut an original album W.O.L.V.E.R.I.N.E.S. with US producer LOUIE SHELTON in Nashville.

The single Howl At The Moon was nominated for a GOLDEN GUITAR award in 1997, the same year the group toured Japan at the insistence of US Marines.

The trio's second love, HARLEY DAVIDSON motorcycles, has brought The Wolverines into contact with the general community through numerous fundraising activities for childrens charities.

In 1998, the same year as the inaugural WOLVERINES HARLEY HOG RUN, the group released its second CD FEEL THE NEED TO RIDE, landing another Golden Guitar nomination. TE
