DV8 Goes for Low Key Singing by the Sea

DV8 Goes for Low Key Singing by the Sea

Who: DV8
Where: Wallarah Hotel
When: Sunday July 30, 2000

'SILVER sands, late afternoon, setting sun...'

The opening lines of DV8's 1980s hit song DOWN TO THE SEA describe the location of the group's show this Sunday, at the Wallarah Hotel, Catherine Hill Bay.

Sunday's low-key concert, which begins at 3pm, is one of a few the group plans to play this year to support the most recent DV8 CD BIG GREEN MONSTERS. Songwriter, singer and guitarist GREG BRYCE, original bass player MARK MIDDLETON and former SCREAMING JETS drummer CRAIG ROSEVEAR, form the trio.

The idea to play the show came after the trio's appearance at THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN show earlier this year.

'We had such a good time we thought we'd do a few low-key things just to keep us tight and keep us playing, maybe for something on a bit larger scale later on,' Rosevear said. Rosevear joined The Jets' GRANT WALMSLEY and PAUL WOSEEN on the recording Big Green Monsters, where he met Bryce.

At Sunday's gig DV8 will play 'a whole bunch of classics, some of the new stuff and some covers thrown in for good measure'.
