FANS of popular Mason Rack Band will be excited to hear they are almost home.

The three piece Gold Coast band will be back in the motherland next week after a hectic sold out Canadian tour.

There is no rest for the regular Tweed performers, with the guys setting up the equipment for a show at Lone Start Tavern next week.

Frontman and lead vocalist Mason Rack said it was always good to be able to play to a home crowd.

"We love touring and being on the road, but it's always great to get home and play to our hometown audience," he said.

"Most of our original fan base is on the Coast.

"They're always an awesome crowd, they get right into it and they know how to have a good time."

The band's latest album 'Limits of Grip' is described as a heady mix of heavy rock and blues with origins in jazz and roots.

The boys are renowned for their energetic performances where table tops, beer kegs and bar tops are all part of the show.

With the unmistakable raspy vocals of Mason Rack, the deep bluesy sounds of Nathan Lee-Archer on bass and drumming prodigy, Canadian-born Joel 'Thunderfoot' Purkess in charge of the band's signature thumping beats, the result is a spirited performance not to be missed.

"For us, it's all about the music and it's about putting on a great show," Rack said.

"We love to mix it up and we love to get a crowd going. We can't sit still for too long."

The Mason Rack Band will play at the Lone Star Tavern on Friday, September 14.

Dinner and show tickets start at $50, with show only tickets available for $20.

To book, contact the venue on 07 55 722 500.
