Tailgate, The Band, The Myth, The Music

So it is said that everything must end, and from it’s ashes shall rise a new force…an entity so strong and overwhelming that only a select few can see it in it’s true form. These witnesses are known as “Tailgaters” and they gather in groups at “Tailgating parties“, that last well into the night, to see what other mortals have only heard about in rumour and hushed speech passed along throughout the lands and valleys, via rivers and seaports, until the myth had been born and taken flight.

The gatherers have sworn to spread the news of these great times of music and friendship, held together by a band they call Tailgate. What IS this “Tailgate”, you ask? It is a group of musicians playing awesome covers of songs from the 1960’s onward to such effect that you want to sing along, thus affecting everyone around you with good vibes and dancing groovies.

Their setlist consists of songs such as Bad Moon Rising, Born To Be Wild, Brown Eyed Girl, Folsom Prison Blues, Johnny B Goode, Knockin On Heaven’s Door, Rockin In The Free World and many more. In other words, tunes you know by heart and can have a good time singing and dancing to!

The band is:

Mark Hippern – Vocals, Guitar, Banjo, Harmonica
Andrew Frelick – Guitar, Vocals, Bass
Aaron Warren – Bass, Vocals, Guitar
Jamie Phillips – Drums, Vocals

They are available for bookings at Dances, Weddings, Banquets, Private Functions, Clubs, etc, and put on an entertaining show wherever they go filled with humour and professional musicianship. Recommended!

We will be at their upcoming gig at King’s Corner posted here. See you there, future tailgators!!
