This Easter Sunday the Renaissance Festival is proud to host a live performance by the latest incarnation of Stereo Volvo. Formed as a 5 piece with 2 live drummers the original line up released their debut album almost a decade ago, receiving an on-line GOLD INDY award and inclusion on the “Kiss My Grass” compilation album by KISS FM released shortly thereafter.
Life intervened and a hiatus followed while as members raised families and developed music studio businesses as well as recorded and toured internationally with other artists. Late last year in 2016 the two original composers Pete Warren-Smith and Anthony “ToK” Norris re-formed Stereo Volvo with an entirely fresh batch of material but in a smaller lineup than the former quintet.
Now a trio featuring “ToK” on Trumpet (electric), PWS on Bass (electric) and former drummer Scottie Bennett on Percussion (not electric) Stereo Volvo melds their elite musicianship and improvisation atop def beats and grooves, that results in a “Space Dub ’n’ Jazz Experience.”
The trio is currently in pre-production for a second album and bring this soon to be recorded material LIVE to stage this Easter Sunday 4pm @ the Renaissance Festival. (100 Tarrango Road, Yarra Junction)
