Al Heeney Rhythm & Blues Experience
This band was brought together by Al Heeney a man who needs little introduction to people who have been in the Armidale music scene. Al decided he wanted to have even more fun playing music and so pulled together a bunch of friends in order to not only delight himself but the greater Armidale community.
We are the classical guitar duo of Steve Thorneycroft and Stephen Tafra, hailing from Australia and the small town of Armidale in the New England region of NSW. We are committed to exploring both inventive and established repertoire and boast a diverse history of projects ranging from new music commissions to ground breaking transcriptions of classic works.
Not your regular cover band - The BopCatz are Carol Elder (potent vocals), Steve Thorneycroft (archival guitars), Sarah Thorneycroft (humming bass) and Steve Harris (righteous drums), and they have been speaking with Elvis, Carlos and the Bandidos, The Shadows, Alison Krauss, Eilen Jewell, The Stray Cats and Imelda May, and are bringing the wild word of hip bop song to a room near you. Combining many years experience as performing musicians, The BopCatz respect tradition but also prize innovation, channelling the spirit of the originals and pioneers, but also seeking out the new flavours and forms – a dash of swamp gothic, mudcountry blues and voodoo groove.
