Blowing the roof off the joint: REDSTARBORN
A STAR has been born, actually a red star, in the form of a four-piece rock outfit called REDSTARBORN.
The Tweed-based band has been getting interest from as far north as Brisbane.
The 'high energy, blow the roof off the joint rock' group was formed in the area around 2012 and has recently played some rockin' shows at Surfers Paradise Tavern and Beergarden, Prince of Wales Hotel Brisbane and other sought after gigs.
In what's expected to be their most impressive show yet, the boys are set to play at the X&Y Bar in Brisbane, one of Fortitude Valley's top live music venues.
The X&Y Bar has formerly hosted alternative A-list entertainment such as The Amity Affliction, Wolfmother and the Reuben's and REDSTARBORN vocalist Shane Seale said the band was 'amped' for the show.
"We're just starting out but it's taken off," he said.
"The band's looking to do big things."
Seale said that REDSTARBORN's beergarden gig was their first live show and the band was happy to play at the well established Surfer's haunt.
"We were really pleased to put our foot in the door there," he said.
The group is comprised of Seale, Dan Newton on guitar, 'Donny' on bass and Mick McLennan on drums and they only formed in early 2012 under the working name The Rhythm Method.
"We've all sorta played since our childhood years," Seale said.
"And we did our first recordings about a year ago."
REDSTARBORN are set to shake up the X&Y Bar on April 10 and will also play at Miami Shark Bar on April 13.
