Bright, Rambunctious Lunchtime Entertainment - The Junes at Basement Discs

Basement Discs at lunchtime today hosted an in store as bright and sunny as Melbourne’s current weather, featuring The Junes, who are Sarah Carroll, Suzannah Espie and Glenny Rae augmented by Dougie Bull on stand-up bass and Chris Tabone on drums.

The Junes have just released a new CD 12 Golden Greats, a sterling collection of country swing originals and they gave the appreciative audience at Basement Discs a scintillating taste of what’s on the record.

They sound like an updated version of Git and indeed both Suzannah and Sarah were members of that group and like Git specialise in superb girlie harmonies.

As both individual artists and performing in super groups like The Junes it’s always a pleasure to see one or other of these women play.

Tonight I get to see Suzannah Espie again with her band The Last Word at the East Brunswick Club supporting Eilen Jewell. It should be a fantastic night’s entertainment.

Check out
The Junes My Space page to hear their music for yourself.

Yep, saw them on Friday and Sunday last week. Three times in two days is my record for seeing them (was at the Queenscliff Music Festival last year.)
