there set at the Grolsh blues festival in Germany and signed them to there
touring stable . No surprise really , as far as live performance ''MRB'' are
entertainment GODS. Their drum duels, onstage antics signature movements set
them apart from everything & everyone else .
I don’t think
that there would be a person on the planet that could possibly walk away
from a Mason Rack band show disappointed. If there is, I’d suggest they
used fewer drugs. This band made up of Mason Rack on Vocals, guitar &
lap slide, Michael Cole on bass, and Aram Anson on drums, has toured the
world, and treated thousands and thousands of blues music fans with their
almost sexual experience.
The first time
I ever experienced Mason Rack, was a number of years ago at the Caxton
Seafood festival in Brisbane. I heard the sound of metal rolling on the
road, and to the amazement of everyone around, mason rack was rolling a beer
keg down the street through the crowds towards the stage. The voice on this
man is reminiscent of cutting donuts on a gravel patch, with the most
powerful amount of soul you could ever put into a voice box. He is a
charismatic performer, someone who completely draws you in, and when he’s
done, makes you want for more.
at Bluesfest was nothing short of spectacular. There crowd on this perfect
Easter Sunday Morning were completely ready for something amazing…and then
it happened. Mason Rack band in full swing, the crowd in the tent some 3000
strong, very quickly turned into an overflowing 8000-10000 easy. The band
covered many of the signature moves that make The Mason Rack Band one of the
best to see. The multi-talented musicians interchange half way through the
set. There isn’t many bands that can do this and pull it off so well.
Mason heads to the drums, and smashes out like a pro. Aram Anson
moves from drum kit to the bass guitar and doesn’t miss a note. Michael
Cole jumps on guitar and vocals, like it was always that way.
everywhere, Michael pumping out a bass solo that could wake Cliff
Burton …behind his head… Aram
played a drum solo that lifted the roof, and Mason treated his cream
coloured Vintage to the thrashing it lives for. The set was finished with
the "family" ending. All three band members drumming in unison on
beer kegs, tossing the drumsticks with precision timing between themselves
like jugglers with chainsaws. The crowd goes nuts for this, and Mason Rack
goes down as one of my highlights of Bluesfest 2012. Right up there with
Jonny Lang, John Fogerty, and John Butler Trio…Mason Rack Band…If you
ever see they are performing near you, and don’t go…punch yourself in
the face for me.
guys last night and they were Friggin' Amazing! One of the most amazing Live
experiences I have ever had. These guys drag the Blues Kicking and Screaming
into the 21 Century... They have to be Seen to be Believed!!! (And you can
Quote me on That!)
FM -TERRY PARSONS-''Blind Lemon Radio''
Originating from the Gold
Coast in Queensland, Mason Rack Band is not afraid to break all the musical
genre rules. The bands new album Limits of Grip does just that, flaunting
expectation by combining a classic mix of heavy rock, blues, jazz and roots
Known for a swampy blues
/ rock sound the band influences include flashes of Tom Waits, and
Muddy Waters with roots extending to Ben Harper. Throw in a slide guitar,
raspy vocals, a rocking bluesy bass, massive drum percussion and the result
is a spectacular kaleidoscope of musical genres.
The popular three piece
is renowned for their amazing live stage performances. The band has played
alongside artists including Xavier Rudd, Jack Johnson, Buddy Guy and Keith
Urban to name a few.
