Collie-local Rhiannon Gale is heading a new band, South Jam, set to play shows in Collie and Bunbury later this month.
Rhiannon brings her powerhouse vocals to join with established cover artists guitarist Harvey, drummer Ronnie and bass guitarist Louie for a fun mix of rock, southern and blues covers.
Rhiannon has been singing since her early teens with local stalwarts Paul & Jane and has been a feature of the annual Collie Idol competition at the Crown Hotel since its inception.
Her bandmates, Harvey
Lead guitarist Harvey is classically-trained, his early days in his grandfather’s orchestra in the Phillipines before moving to Australia in the early 1990s. Louie, also originally from the Phillipines, has been in Australia for eight years and has played in various bands in Perth and Bunbury, including the well-known Blizzard Band and Chain Reaction. Ronnie has been playing in bands since his teens and has joined forces with Harvey in previous bands.
South Jam play at the Crown Hotel in Collie on Friday, 24 June, starting at 9.30pm.
