Greazefest 2011

Held in Brisbane Australia , Greazefest is a ‘must do’ kustom kulture festival for devotees in the Southern Hemisphere. A weekend filled with cool cars, rockabilly tunes, tattoos, pinstripers , lowriders, and vintage fashion.

Sharing the Stage with Pat Capocci at Greazefest 2011

This year I was lucky enough to be asked to perform with my favourite rockabilly partner in crime the one and only Pat Capocci. Working with Pat is an absolute pleasure. His unique sound , charismatic energy and undeniable talent make him one of the hottest acts around. We prepared a killer set filled with loud, fast out of control tunes and a few obscure gems that had the dance floor jumpin’. We have also included a couple of my original tunes in the mix and I loved for hearing my songs get the Pat Capocci treatment.

The music played over two nights and all day on the Sunday and there was a wonderful selection of local talent and international artists to impress the masses. A highlight for most was watching James Intveld headline on the Saturday night. The ladies swooned and the fellas stood tall enjoying his polished performance and heavenly vocals.

I particularly loved hearing Press-Tone records Scotty Baker ,Rusty Pinto and the man I share the stage with Pat Capocci. Their original tunes with clever lyrics and rockin’ rhythms had me hooked. I bought both of their albums and they have been on a high rotation ever since.

Thousands of rockabilly and hot rod fans visited the festival , with crowds saying it was bigger and better than ever before and many people already planning next years adventure.

Thanks for having me Lori Lee. I had a ball……. Xxxxx
