Trio Bag Good Sound

Who: bAg
Where: Club Phoenix
When: Saturday January 30, 1999

THE merging of musicians GARTH BANKS, BARRY PARMENTER and GAVIN BANKS into bAg has seen the three well-travelled musos combine their talents to create a rich repertoire of original and classic material.

A chance meeting by guitarist and singer Garth Banks with Gavin and Barry from bAg saw the three unite and ultimately expand the venue potential of the bAg , which at that stage was a duo.

Barry, who plays a wide range of musical styles including classical guitar, has a flexible vocal style which saw him front many bands as a lead singer and rhythm guitarist since the 1960s in England and Australia.

Gavin Banks has been playing, writing and performing music since he was 12, he has performed his original material before live audiences from Australia to North America and developed a sensitive playing style that has pleased punters in Australia and overseas.

Now playing a mean acoustic guitar set, bAg draws from jazz, folk and contemporary rock styles and influences including guitar greats and acoustic masters to deliver punters a big night out.
