Spoonful play 2 sets from 9.30pm FREE
2014 marked Spoonful’s 21st year together as a band - now celebrated regulars across the live music scene.
Spoonful's sound wholeheartedly embraces rhythm and blues, soul, and rock 'n roll. Featuring Paul Winstanley on Bass, David Lord on Keys/Vocals/Harp and brothers Andre and Kit Warhurst on guitar/vocals and drums/vocals respectively, Spoonful now mine their wealth of collective experience to create something that is uniquely their own and much loved by their legion of fans.
Formed originally as a fun, party offshoot of Manic Suede in the early 90's, Spoonful happily ticked along in the background while members concentrated their individual efforts on various related and unrelated projects. Andre fronted Silver Night Drive, accepted numerous "guitar slinger" adventures, played slide guitar on Jet's debut record and collaborated with Kram on the Spiderbait frontman’s solo project. Tellingly, several years ago Andre knocked back an offer of a stint in Jimmy Barnes' band to instead "do my own thing". (He’s still deciding if that was smart or not.) Kit is part of seminal Melbourne band Rocket Science as well as being music composer/producer for various film/TV projects and Dave played keys in The Rectifiers. Paul moonlights as a fireman so he's often distracted by the need to save random peoples’ lives. Whatever.
Now celebrating the launch of their fourth album “Indian Tiger Waterfall”, Spoonful are in the kind of shape most other bands can only dream of.
For Spoonful, the thrill hasn't gone. In fact it just keeps getting better.
