After The Monkees disbanded, Mike Nesmith set off down his unique musical path, giving us some of the “smartest songs ever penned about cows, break-ups, and broken-down Chevys”.
Joanne, Different Drum, Listen to the Band, and Rio became huge AM Radio hits, and cemented Nesmith as a songwriter and performer with a singular take on the minutiae of life.
In Beyond the Blue Horizon (link to video), love, friendship, boredom and shenanigans are enveloped in his quirky, kooky country-rock embrace, and served up by a superb band for your listening pleasure, and pleasant bemusement.
Celebrating Mike are Australia’s pedal steel guitar maestro Michel Rose, vocalist Anje West, 3x ARIA-nominated Danny Widdicombe (guitar/vocals), The Company’s Jamie Clark (guitar), Helen Russell (bass) and Kym Ambrose (drums)
Australia's only band celebrating the music of Sergio Mendes and Brazil 66, with the awesome talents of Brazilian music veterans Anje West and Kym Ambrose, the cracking guitar of Jamie Clark, along with Peta Leigh Wilson on keys and Helen Russell on bass.
The band brings you as many Brasil 66 & 77 faves as they can fit into a show, including Chove Chuva, Pretty World, Zanzibar, After Midnight, Norweigan Wood, Mas Que Nada, The Look of Love and many more!
