super cheezy

Supercheeze, led by the multi-talented Jesse Balfour is back at The Rails this weekend. In early 2017, and after a brief hiatus while he worked on other musical projects, the decision was made to scratch off the mould, crank up the griller and once again melt some fine cheddar in the name of high-value entertainment.

As before, the mission statement is simple: play upbeat ‘cheezy’ hit songs that many will know, with a positive vibe, great musicianship, high-quality production; get everyone in the audience dancing, singing, laughing; and generally having a grand old time.

The Supercheeze fondue-pot consists of Jesse on lead vocals and guitar, Dean Jones on guitar and co-lead vocals, Greg Strong on bass guitar and co-lead vocals – BTW his career as a dubious fromagier stretches further than a vintage mozzarella – and sitting behind the kit with occasional lead vocals Mark Bridges, who once claimed the title of downhill cheese-rolling champion of Clunes three years consecutively – simply amazing!

So just remember – when life gets you down, don’t just whine, get some ‘cheeze’ into you, and dance the night away. This Friday at the Rails.
