The Sweeney Are Back! (again)
Following three reunion gigs earlier in the year, The Sweeney have another gig coming up this Saturday (25th August, 7pm) at Harlow Town Park Bandstand.
The 3-piece band is led by Otway Big Band guitarist Murray Torkildsen, and also includes Adam from the Big Band on drums. Their music is fun and energetic rock-pop, topped with Murray's often insightful lyrics. They're well worth catching if you can.
There's more information about the band at their Facebook page
