Live Music: Transvaal Diamond Syndicate @ The Wickham Park Pub

Transvaal Diamond Syndicate
After punching out a 63-date national tour earlier in 2012, the brains at Beats Cartel have been busy planning the next endeavour for Brisbane’s ‘Transvaal Diamond Syndicate’. And to be honest… it’s going to be just as epic.

The Blues Rock stallions have stayed extremely busy over the last few years often tagged as one of the hardest working bands in the country with over 120 live original shows clocked up and more than 75,000kms on the ol’ TDS Express in 2012 alone. This pattern will continue well into 2013 with the band hitting the road again for a Summer/Autumn/Winter of love.

The tour will stretch through 5 states and a territory and see the band stretched to dietary/mental/physical/emotional/sexual/musical limits as they deliver their brand of stomp Blues Rock to the awaiting masses.

The last few years has been a pretty steep learning curve for the band. With countless tours (2 national tours and 8 regional tours), support slots (The Fumes, The Beards, Dallas Frasca etc), festival appearances (Byron Bluesfest, QLD Festival of Blues, Cool Summer Fest etc), industry accolades (IMA Award, QMusic Highly Commended, Song of the Year - QLD Blues Awards and 4ZzZ Radio) and a stack of radio support (3 songs on Triple J, Top 40 most requested artists on Community Radio, Australian Blues Album Charts appearances etc), TDS have put in the hard yards it can’t be denied.

The 2013 tour edition will be based around 2 single releases, a clip release and a limited-edition tour vinyl EP release. COMING TO A SERVICE STATION NEAR YOU!

      I can vouch for Helens driving AND parking skills. She did a great job that time driving to and parking at the Great Northern pub to see the same band.
