1/277 Brunswick St - 8:45pm
Live music, Pool/Snooker tables, Arcade games, TV Lounge, Hot Beverages & Snacks
A Melbourne based 5-piece band playing a brand of melodic rock with captivating female harmonies.
Singer, songwriter and guitarist Heidi has been playing acoustic gigs since 2001 with close friend Larissa. In 2005 these bittersweet harmonies have been catapulted into the rock domain with the addition of a solid rhythm section. With Stuart on Bass & Darren on drums, the lead guitar work of Strat ensures that Von Hyder are not like other rock bands.
The songs, the harmonies and the new exciting attitude talk to people who want originality and vibrancy.
Recent Melbourne gigs include the Yak Speakeasy, the Duke of Windsor, the Cue, and the Armadale Hotel, with an appreciative & energetic audience that could best be described as an eclectic mix of genre aficionados - oft categorised as Rock/Pop. From outside the pub, Von Hyder sounds like that great rock band that you just have to get inside to hear more.
A debut self-titled EP was recorded in the Rancho *****bo studios in March 2005 and is now available.
