What happens when a dream comes true? A massive leap of faith was taken – the Mason Rack Band will play the Groslch Blues Festival in Germany, then return home for a string of shows on the east coast including a Sydney Harbour cruise show. Then jet off once again to the Darwin Blues Fest, then… wait for it… fly immediately out to their sixth Canadian tour, playing festivals, show rooms and clubs.
‘It started as a weekend thing playing bongos with my father Billy Rack,’ says Mason. ‘Now, the Mason Rack Band plays major festivals and tours internationally. Why? Our show is different, and it’s a show! We have solos, drum extravaganzas and a new Red Hat segment (see above) that’s adults only. It’s a full show alright, jaw dropping, and absolutely wonderful.
With a minimum of 16 festivals this year so far, the future is a promising one for MRB. The release of their new HD DVD is a testament to their exceptional talent and road-tested work ethic.
Mason and his band are sure to stir up the crowd with their awe-inspiring original tracks. Having performed to sellout crowds throughout the Gold Coast and overseas, lovers of fine alternative blues and rock should not miss this opportunity to witness this band at the Currumbin RSL on Saturday.
