The band has been performing together as a group since 1988 providing entertainment and dance music at venues ranging from hotels and clubs to school and church bush dances.
The bands particular emphasis is on traditional Australian songs and tunes originating from Australias earlier history. Many of our traditional tunes such as Botany Bay and Road to Gundagai are very entertaining when performed with traditional instruments such as accordion, fiddle, mouth organ and tin whistle. As part of our act we always include those great old sing-along tunes such as Waltzing Matilda, Click Goes the Shears, Home among The Gum Trees to name a few.
In 2000 Stone the Crows released their first CD, which is just a taste of their very broad repertoire of traditional Australian bush, folk and country music. Their 2006 album Stone the Crows Bush Band AGAIN is now on sale.
Stone the Crows will also call your favorite bush dances including the Heel and Toe Polka, the Drongo, Strip the Willow, the Stockyards and many others. We always include some childrens specialties such as the Hokie-Pokie and the Chicken Dance. If you enjoy Australian Bush Poetry a special segment can be included for recitation of an Australian classic such as Banjo Pattersons Man from Ironbarkâ€ or the Bush Christening.
The members of Stone the Crows Bush Band include experienced musicians with a wide background of musical accomplishments and tastes. They include:
Allen McMonagle Guitar, fiddle, vocals and recitations
Del Moller Bass, vocals
Bill Turner Banjo, Guitar, Whistles, Vocals
Neil Wills Mandolin, Guitar, Vocals
