Multi-talented Melbourne duo Dave Graney and Clare Moore will take to the stage in The Brewery at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Friday 9 July.However they choose to play, they bring their story and vast and splendid songbook which stretches over 40 years – and over 40 albums.

Partners in life and music, the pair have fronted numerous bands including The Moodists (1980 to 1987), Dave Graney and The White Buffaloes (1989 to 1990), Dave Graney and Coral Snakes (1987 to 1989, 1991 to 1997), The Dave Graney Show (1998 to 2003), Dave Graney and Clare Moore featuring the Lurid Yellow Mist or Dave Graney and the Lurid Yellow Mist (2004 to 2011) and in more recent years, Dave Graney and the mistLY.

Graney was awarded ’Best Male Vocalist’ at the ARIA Music Awards of 1996 for his work on The Soft ’n’ Sexy Sound, while “Feelin’ Kinda Sporty“ won ’Best Video’ in 1997. He has received seven other ARIA Award nominations.

During the pandemic lockdown – which they experienced in Melbourne – they started doing online shows every week, sometimes twice a week and revisited songs from all these albums as well as workshopping new material. They kept their performing, playing and writing skills sharp.

They have also been in the studio recording a new album, provisionally titled ’Thus Wags The World’, as well as issuing three live albums from the vaults in the last 12 months.

Dave Graney humbly adds (with tongue firmly in cheek), “It’s not like those other crumby bands. They are mostly wrong, we are totally right. Word. Comrade. We go East, West, North, South and Straight Up. Get some”.

Don’t miss this one. Graney and Moore specialise in delivering.
