The Southern River Band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, Cal Kramer, is eager to see what 2019 has in-store for the group. 

Known for its laid-back vibe and fun rock tunes, The Southern River Band is one of Perth’s must-see ensembles. 

The past year has seen the group play at festivals and sold-out shows around Australia.

“When you look out at the crowd and see people smiling, dancing etc., you know they are not thinking about the bulls**t going on in their lives,” he said. 

“It’s an amazing feeling and that’s why we do it.

“It’s great to be able to take our music and go see those smiling faces, that’s why we do it.” 

The Southern River Band will soon re-visit Bunbury to help fans “recharge, update, download, upload, and rock out”. 

The group will join Abbe May and The Tommyhawks at 'Plug into 2019 at the Prince' on Saturday, December 29.

“We’ve been coming to Bunbury for years. It always makes for a bloody good time and there are great people there,” he said. 

“The Prince of Wales is a great venue to play at and a musical institution for the South West. 

“It always makes for a ripper party and I’m sure this year will be no different. 

“Abbe is a West Australian music legend and The Tommyhawks started out around the same time we did.

“It’s cool to see bands kicking arse around the country.

“Abbe is from Bunbury, and our bass player and drummer are also from Bunbury. We’ll be getting that ‘home town’ feeling.”

After rocking the Prince, the bands will perform at The River, Margaret River on December 30. 

On December 31, they will bring in the new year with a massive three-stage concert at the Rosemount Hotel, North Perth.
