Brisbane based guitar-slinger and singer Dana Gehrman and her band will take to the stage at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Saturday 17 August from 7.30pm, supported by Ruby Gilbert.
Armed with her old Fender telecaster and matching Fender amps, Dana takes no prisoners on stage while she brings her 70’s ‘West Coast’ inspired Roots-Boogie to life with more panache and vitality than most rock ‘n roll men could even dream of.
From an early age Dana was inspired by the classic albums of the 60’s and 70’s from her parents’ record collection.
This year will see the release of Gehrman’s debut album, ‘Find A Way’. Co-written and co-produced with Danny Widdicombe and recorded over three days with The Honeysliders, ‘Find A Way’ is a seventies groove based, good-time record reminiscent of the retro sounds so formative for Dana’s love of music.
Dana Gehrman has just had the sort of year most musicians can only dream about. Gehrman shared the studio and toured nationally with the legendary Tim Rogers, toured in support of Phil Jamieson of Grinspoon, Australian music veteran Mick Thomas and his Roving Commission as well as Melbourne’s Motown greats, The Teskey Brothers.
She’s graced the stage of venues up and down the East Coast and was recognised as a finalist for the 2018 and 2019 Queensland Music Awards.
Pre-sale tickets can be purchased for $18 (plus a booking fee) through Oztix or at the Imperial Hotel (Phone 5442 8811). Tickets can be purchased for $25 at the door (unless sold out prior).
