Walking past King O’Malley’s last night (Sat 4th) with friends, we decided to briefly check out the band playing.. accustom to hearing average musicians performing karaoke-like versions of the ‘standard pub songs’, we walked into a packed room and were amazed by band ‘The Remnants’. Planning on an early night, we stuck around well past midnight dancing and enjoying the quality entertainment in front of us. Songs ranged from Shake A Tailfeather, an impressive performance of Van Halen’s Jump, modern chart songs and even Grease medley for good measure! 3 different vocalists gave great variety and an impressive range of keyboard sounds made each song as close to the original as possible.
Professionalism, diversity, talent and a crowd appreciating song after song.. are there any other cover bands in Canberra that compare?!
