When The Round Mountain Girls last played at Caba Sports back in June it was rumoured to be the club’s biggest night ever. Those mountaineers sure like to party!

A lot has happened on the mountain since then. The band is becoming a regular on the festival circuit and since June has appeared at Cooly Rocks On, Sawtell Chilli Fest, Gympie Muster, Coast Acoustics, Ballina Country Fest, Coast Out, Mud Bulls and Utes, Canberra Country Fest (where Chris Brooker won an award) and Mullum Music Fest as well as a whole lot of regular gigs all up and down the coast.

They are also busy writing songs for the third album and as if all that is not enough, after repeated requests from the mountaineers, they recently locked themselves in the studio and will soon present them with an EP of four covers, all lovingly bent and bashed into shape with the banjo.

All this playing is making the band tighter than ever so watch out Cabarita because its RMG time again!

The Round Mountain Girls are playing at Cabarita Sports Club on Saturday.
