Wolverines to Pounce with Humour and Hard Country



Who: Wolverines
Where: Hexham Bowling Club
Author: Jade Lazerevic
When: Friday December 7, 2001

OFTEN described as the bad boys of country music, The Wolverines will make their way to the Hunter this weekend to perform at Hexham Bowling Club. In the six years that the band has been together, it has introduced audiences all around Australia to its blend of tongue-in-cheek humour and hard-hitting country music.

The band performs anything from Texan boogie to blues ballads and retro classics.

Made up of Darcy LeYear on lead vocals and guitar, Chris Doyle on keyboards and John Clinton on drums, the band has developed a large following among country music fans.

The band started out with a basement gig in 1994 at the Tamworth Country Music Festival and has gone on to feature as one of the main attractions at the festival each year.

The Wolverines have recorded and released two albums titled Gonna Ride All Night Long and Feel The Need To Ride. The success of these two releases also saw the band receive several Golden Guitar nominations.

The Wolverines are already preparing to perform a number of gigs at the Tamworth Country Music Festival next year.

This year the band released a single titled 65 Roses. Hexham Bowling Club will host The Wolverines on Friday night and TE has two double passes to the show to give away.
