Warwick set to rock as Street Pieces return
THE Belle Vue will continue to cement its position as Warwick’s freshest live music venue this weekend when Brisbane band Street Pieces return to rock the room, tomorrow night from 8pm.
The band, which used to feature Warwick bassist Justin Alley, is coming back for their fourth Warwick show and frontman Ben Tilney can’t wait.
“We absolutely love coming to Warwick,” he said.
“It’s the best.
“Best crowd, best people, best atmosphere, best dancing, best following and best reaction.
“I think the crowd really appreciates the effort we put in to come out to Warwick and appreciate how hard we play and the whole show in general.
“It’s definitely the classic awesome country attitude, you don’t get it like that in Brisbane.
“So we love coming back to Warwick.”
The band often draws a comparison to Aussie rock legends INXS and Tilney said he’s happy with that.
“If people want to think that then great,” he said.
“They’re definitely my biggest influence but we’ve got a whole heap of influences as a band.
“We’re loving Audioslave at the moment; Marcus, our drummer, loves Dream Theatre, and the other boys love Hendrix, Satriani, BB King and so on, it’s a long list.
“Our music is full of really bluesy licks, we draw a lot from the holy trinity of British hard rock bands – Led Zepplin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath.”
Tilney said Street Pieces will be ably supported by Toowoomba band Mace and the Motor.
“They are so incredibly groovy with massive riffs,” he said.
“As a venue the Belle Vue is so hospitable and look after us so well.
“It’s so cool that it’s an easy going cafe during the day and then we turn up and it’s a rock venue at night.
“Warwick lad Justin Alley used to play bass for us, but he picked up some more teaching work and life has taken him in a different circle, which is cool.
“But there may just be a little Warwick crossover during our show, you never know.”
